Air Fried Persian Chicken Kabob

This Air Fryer Low Carb Persian Joojeh Kabobs Grilled Saffron Chicken is aromatic, easy, and very family-friendly. It's really perfect for kids. Joojeh kabobs are traditionally made with boneless, skinless chicken breast, but I think it's actually juicier if you use chicken thighs.

What you'll need: 

– Chicken Breasts – Onion – Full-Fat Greek Yogurt – Oil – Kosher Salt – Smoked Paprika – Ground Black Pepper – Saffron Water – Turmeric

Make the Saffron Water

1. In a mortar and pestle, grind together equal parts of saffron and sugar. You're doing this for two reasons. One, it extends the use of the saffron by flavoring the sugar with the aroma and essence. Two, once it is ground up fine, it dissolves in water more easily. 2. Use about 1/2 teaspoon of this powder mixed with 1 cup of hot water to give you a saffron water you can use to flavor lots of things!

Make the Joojeh Kabobs

1. Place chicken in a bowl. 2. Place onion, Greek yogurt, oil, salt, paprika, and black pepper in a small blender container and process until you get a smooth mixture. 3. Pour this over the chicken. 4. Add turmeric and saffron water and mix until the chicken is well-coated with the marinade.

5. Allow the chicken to marinate for 30 minutes or for up to 24 hours in a refrigerator. 6. Remove the chicken from marinade, and place in the air fryer basket. 7. Set the air fryer to 370F for 15 minutes, flipping the chicken halfway through. 8. Ensure the chicken has reached an internal temperature of 165F before serving.
