Cook the Bacon
Cook 3 slices of bacon until crispy. We used the air-fryer for 7-10 minutes at 180

Take pinches of pre-grated Parmesan cheese and place on a microwave safe plate. Pat flat. Cook for 1-2 minutes. When hot, using a spatula, remove from plate and move to a cold plate to cool.
Cook the Chicken
In advance, cut the chicken into 1 inch cubes. Take 1/2 the Caesar dressing and pour into a plastic Ziploc bag. Add chicken and store in fridge for 4-8 hours or overnight.
Thread chicken onto skewers. Cook in Air Fryer at 180C for 15 minutes, turning occasionally until brown and temperature reaches 70C.
Remove and let rest for 3-5 minutes.
