For the City Chicken:

  • 1 lb (450g) boneless, skinless chicken breast or pork cubes
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Wooden skewers, soaked in water

For the Dipping Sauce (Optional):

  • Sugar-free ketchup
  • Yellow mustard


  1. Preheat your air fryer to 375°F (190°C).
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine almond flour, grated Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Mix well to create the breading mixture.
  3. Thread the chicken or pork cubes onto the wooden skewers, creating small kebabs.
  4. Roll each kebab in the breading mixture, ensuring an even coating.
  5. Place the coated kebabs in the preheated air fryer basket, making sure they don’t touch each other. You may need to cook them in batches.
  6. Air fry for about 15 minutes, turning the kebabs halfway through the cooking time, or until they are golden brown and cooked through. The internal temperature should reach 165°F (74°C).
  7. While the city chicken is cooking, you can mix sugar-free ketchup and yellow mustard together in equal parts to create a tasty dipping sauce.
  8. Once cooked, remove the city chicken from the air fryer and let them rest for a few minutes before serving.
  9. Serve your Air Fryer Low Carb City Chicken with the optional dipping sauce on the side.
