Ninja Foodi Greek Chicken and Veggies
This air fried Greek chicken and veggies combo is one of my favorite meal prep recipes as of late. It’s so easy to make and yields 5 massive servings of tender chicken breast with juicy tomatoes and charred red onion. Each serving has 22 grams of protein with just 9 grams of carbs, leaving you plenty of room to get creative with how you serve it.
How to Make Greek Chicken and Veggies in the Ninja Foodi
It’s a super simple recipe, but I’ll walk you through it below and cover a few recipe modification questions as we go. If I miss something, drop a comment at the bottom of the post, and I’ll help ya out!
Step 1: Air fry red onion, bell pepper, and grape tomatoes for 10 minutes at 400ºF.
Unlike my Ninja Foodi cajun chicken and vegetables or Greek chicken and potatoes, you go straight in with the veggies instead of all together with the chicken. Both methods work, but I think I prefer this method since it allows you to prep the diced chicken breast while the veggies get a head start. It also requires less stirring, better preserving the grape tomatoes.
Though if you have something like the pre-diced chicken breast I used in my air fryer chicken nuggets recipe, you could toss everything in the Ninja Foodi at the same time.
Step 2: Air fry Greek seasoned diced chicken breast for 10 minutes at 400ºF.
The recipe calls for a tablespoon of Greek seasoning. I used Cavender’s Greek Seasoning, but you could use other blends. Be mindful of the sodium content (240mg per 1/4 tsp in Cavender’s). If you use a salt-free seasoning, you’ll want to add some salt to your Greek chicken and veggies.
And if you wanted to make your own, here’s a Greek seasoning recipe you could try.
It’s worth mentioning, I use the 6.5 quart Ninja Foodi for recipe testing. If you’re using a different model or a different air fryer altogether, you may need to slightly modify the cook time. You’ll want to make sure the chicken is fully cooked (internal temp of 165ºF) before adding the veggies back to the chicken.
Step 3: Add the veggies back to the Greek chicken and use the Foodi’s broil function for 6-8 minutes.
This step will create some char on the veggies and crispy bits on any exposed edges of the chicken without over cooking the chicken. If you’re using something other than the Foodi that doesn’t have a broil function, you may be able to replicate this by air frying at a high temperature for just a minute or two. You could even go as far to line the bottom of the basket with foil to limit the air circulation inside the air fryer.
Also, it wouldn’t be the end of the world to skip the broiling altogether if you’re without a Ninja Foodi. Everything is fully cooked and good to go!
Step 4: Serve with sliced kalamata olives, feta cheese, parsley, and a squeeze of lemon juice to get the party started.
How to Reheat Chicken in the Air Fryer
I mentioned this Greek chicken is perfect for meal prep. My recommendation for reheating is tossing a serving in the air fryer basket for 4-6 minutes at 300ºF. This brings it back to life and might be even better than before, in my opinion!
Okay, that’s all the notes I have for you. Enjoy your Greek chicken and veggies! And one last thing before you go.

For Oven Baked Greek Chicken and Veggies
Mix everything together and do a sheet pan style bake at 400ºF for 15-20 minutes or until the chicken reaches 165ºF. You can line the sheet pan with aluminum foil for easier cleanup.
