Ingredients for Air Fryer Chicken Wings

Chicken Wings Split wings are best in this recipe, where the flat or wingette part is separated from the drumette and the wing tips have been removed and discarded.

SeasoningsThese wings are flavored simply with salt and pepper. You can also add other seasonings like garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, lemon pepper, or ranch dressing mix.

They also pair well with any sauce from buffalo sauce to Teriyaki sauce to garlic parmesan.

How to Make Air Fryer Chicken Wings

These really are the best wings – super simple to make, crispy, and juicy-tender inside.

  1. Season the wings in a bowl.
  2. Preheat the air fryer per the recipe below.
  3. Place the wings in a single layer in the air fryer basket and cook until crispy, flipping halfway through.
  4. Cook in batches if needed and reheat all wings in the air fryer for 3 minutes before serving.

Serve wings with carrot and celery sticks and your favorite dipping sauce like blue cheese dip or ranch dressing.

Cook right from frozen. If the wings are frozen, spray them with cooking spray instead of tossing them with oil, and add 5-7 minutes of extra cooking time.

Check your air fryer manual for recommended settings and cooking times.

Seasoning & Sauces for Wings

  • Pat the wings dry before cooking; liquid will cause them to steam.
  • Gently toss with a touch of oil or spray with nonstick cooking spray to help the seasonings stick.
  • Shake or flip the wings after 10 minutes to brown evenly.
  • Don’t overcrowd the air fryer. If needed, make a few smaller batches and place them all back into the air fryer for 3 minutes to heat/crisp before serving.

Sauce ’em Up!

Use your favorite sauces – try buffalo sauce, hot sauce, or a drizzle of hot honey. Once the wings are cooked, place them in a large bowl and toss them with the sauce.
