Best Crispy Chicken Wings!

  • The air fryer is a favorite for cooking chicken wings because they come out super juicy on the inside with a crispy skin on the outside.
  • Chicken wings are versatile and can be seasoned in so many ways! Try them with an Italian, garlic herb, or blackening seasoning. They are also delish tossed with kosher salt and pepper, or as this recipe suggests – buffalo sauce!
  • For a healthy, low-carb snack serve chicken wings with a selection of dips and dressings, like this low carb ranch dressing & dip. Set out a few dozen air fryer wings and let guests choose their favorite dips!

Ingredients and Variations

CHICKEN – Frozen, pre-cooked wings simply need to be seasoned or sauced after the first frying session.

SAUCE – This recipe tosses fresh wings in Frank’s Red Hot buffalo sauce, but other options include BBQ, honey garlic, honey BBQ, or teriyaki sauces.

SEASONINGS – Dry rubs are also great, try simple salt and pepper, or lemon pepper. Garlic parmesan, or a simple pre-made taco or chili seasoning are also great choices!

  2. Place wings on a rack on a baking sheet and bake at 350°F for about 30 minutes for raw wings and 45 minutes for frozen wings.

Tips for Extra Crispy Wings!

  • To make the best wings, choose wings that are of equal size and width.
  • Pat wings dry before adding any seasonings. Cook wings and turn over to complete cooking until crispy all over. Then apply the sauce or glaze and either pop back in the oven, or serve them immediately.
