Air Fryer Chicken Wings

The air fryer is a great tool that will allow you to easily cook things like chicken wings without creating all the mess and having to turn on the oven.

If you’re making wings for a party, there’s no easier way to do it. You can stack up to 2 pounds of chicken wings in your air fryer (depending on its size) and it just takes a couple of flips in between cooking, to make sure each piece gets cooked through.

The result is a crispy, perfectly cooked and tender chicken wing.

How to Make Chicken Wings in the Air Fryer

Rinse and pat dry the chicken wings. Detach them at the joint, if necessary.

In a large bowl, combine the wings with the olive oil, salt and pepper. Toss to coat the pieces evenly. If you want, you can add a dry rub or seasoning salt instead of just salt and pepper, if you want more flavor.

Meanwhile, preheat the air fryer on 400 degrees F (200C) for 3 minutes. Place the chicken wings into the basket and set to cook for 30 minutes.

At the halfway point, open the basket and toss the wings, or use a wooden spoon to rotate the wings. Rotate them one more time during cooking.

Can These Chicken Wings Be Baked Instead?

If you don’t have an air fryer, you can bake the chicken wings in the oven instead. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and cook the wings on a baking sheet with a silicon mat or parchment paper for 30 minutes, flipping them halfway through cooking.

You can baste chicken wings with a sauce in the air fryer, if you wish. After the first flip, brush the wings on one side with sauce. At the second flip, baste the other side of the wings with sauce.
