  1. Combine chicken strips, marinade, and Cajun seasoning in a resealable plastic bag. Refrigerate for 8 hours, or up to overnight.
  2. Measure skewers to fit across the air fryer basket, slightly overlapping the edge. Trim off excess length.
  3. Preheat the air fryer to 180 degrees F (80 degrees C) for 10 minutes.
  4. Thread chicken strips onto skewers, leaving room in between each strip, while the air fryer is preheating.
  5. Air fry for 1 hour 15 minutes. Adjust cooking time as most air fryers have a maximum setting of 30 minutes. Rearrange the skewers during the reset time.
  6. Increase temperature to 200 degrees F (95 degrees C) and air fry for an additional 15 minutes.
  7. Remove strips to a paper towel-lined storage container. Seal. Allow to rest overnight before serving.

It was good. I had to alter the ingredients just a bit but it was actually pretty good.
