  • Chop your chicken breast into medium sized pieces.
  • Peel and very thinly dice your fresh garlic. Add the garlic, seasoning and lemon into a mixing bowl with your chicken.
  • Mix well with your hands.
  • Place it into the storage container and fridge overnight.
  • The next day, toss the chicken in the coconut oil and the Greek yoghurt.
  • Place the chicken onto skewers and cook for 9 minutes at 180c/350f in the grill pan inside the Airfryer.
  • Turn with tongs after the half way point so that both sides can have a crispy grill like coating.
  • Serve with fresh oregano.


I cut my chicken breasts into 2.5cm pieces, but you could have it a little bigger or smaller.
I used dried herbs for marinating the chicken. You could also use fresh or just like me have fresh for sprinkling over when done.
For a more lemon option cook the lemon on the skewers with the chicken.
If you’re not confident thinly slicing garlic I suggest that instead you use a garlic press. It does an excellent job and then just thinly slice the excess that is left in your press after you are done.
We only use a very small amount of coconut oil and Greek yoghurt. This keeps it very moist and flavoursome and a little goes a long way.
