Air Fried Chicken Wings

Chicken wings are one of my favorite things to add-on to my monthly Walden delivery. They provide 5 pounds of wings for a small amount of money and they are the easiest thing to make in the air fryer. I am now the proud owner of two air fryers and my larger one is my go-to for wings since it holds far more than my smaller one. Below is my recipe for frying the wings, as well as how I get the perfect BBQ sauce to toss them in.

  • Ingredients for wings:
  • 3-5 pounds chicken wings (based on the size of your air fryer and whether or not you want to cook in batches)
  • Salt
  • Black Pepper
  • Smoked Paprika
  • Garlic Powder
  • Cajun Seasoning (optional but if you like a kick you need this)
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder (NOT baking soda – that would taste horrific)
  • Olive oil spray
  1. Preheat air fryer to 380 degrees F.
  2. Toss chicken wings in a large bowl with salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder, Cajun seasoning (if using), and baking powder. Baking powder is what makes air fried wings crispy. Trust me on this one.
  3. Spray basket of air fryer with olive oil spray and add wings to basket, spray wings with olive oil spray
  4. Fry at 380 for 10-13 minutes (all fryers run differently)
  5. Shake basket or toss with tongs, spray wings with olive oil again
  6. Fry at 380 for 8-12 minutes
  7. Shake or toss again and spray wings one more time
  8. Fry at 400 (you want to crank the heat for the last round of frying) for 5-7 minutes
  • Ingredients for BBQ Sauce:
  • Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ sauce (I use a mix of the honey and hickory sauces, use as much or as little as you’ll like tossed on your wings) or Pioneer Woman BBQ Sauce
  • 2-3 tablespoons melted butter
  • Hot sauce, to taste
  1. In a medium-size sauce pan, bring the BBQ sauce, butter, and hot sauce mixed together to a boil
  2. Allow to simmer for 5-10 minutes
  3. Toss the wings with the BBQ sauce mixture in a large mixing bowl. The sauce will be hot, as will the wings, so use tongs to do this part
  4. Serve hot
Yum

Easiest recipe ever.
