Crispy Air Fryer Chicken Wings In Less Than An Hour

The first time I made these Crispy Air Fryer Chicken Wings, I was pleasantly surprised at how perfect they came out. I have to admit, I was a little skeptical cooking the entire package at once in the air fryer. The result was tender, juicy, and delicious crispy chicken wings. These are pretty darn close to restaurant quality wings. My favorite part of all is they are cooked in the air fryer, and not in a big vat of hot oil. That means these Air Fryer Chicken Wings are a better for you version of your favorite restaurant wings, without all the fat and added calories. Who doesn’t love that?

This recipe for Crispy Air Fryer Chicken Wings is just as good as your favorite restaurant style wings, without all the added fat and calories. Serve them piled high and tossed in your favorite wing sauce. You can't go wrong with chicken wings! #Recipe #AirFryer #AirFryerRecipe #ChickenWings #AirFryerChickenWings

Cooking With An Air Fryer

I have had my NuWave Brio 6qt. Air Fryer for almost a year. When I first got it, I couldn’t wait to cook everything and anything just to see how it came out. We tried everything from a whole chicken (delicious!) to chocolate cupcakes (not a great outcome.. LOL). I discovered my favorite things to make in the air fryer were tasty foods that were normally fried in oil like the Crispy Potato Skins I posted last month…. and bacon! Bacon in the air fryer is AAAAAmazing! That just might be my next air fryer recipe post, it is so simple and easy and NO mess. 

Crispy Air Fryer Chicken Wings

Let’s talk chicken wings! There is just something about a meaty, juicy chicken wing with super crispy deep fried skin. The right chicken wing can make or break the appetizer basket. Am I right? As great as they are, we really don’t need all of that added fat, especially when there really is an easier and healthier way to get the perfect chicken wing with no oil at all. Using the air fryer can give you everything a deep fryer can give you and more. This is our favorite and only way to make them now.

Place all the wings in the air fryer.

Make sure to leave a few inches of space above the wings. You don’t want to fill it to the top, you need a bit of room for the air to circulate.

Cook at 325 degrees for 25 – 30 minutes, pausing and shaking the basket every 5-6 minutes for even cooking. This is important for even cooking.

Once the wings are slightly brown and cooked through, turn the temperature up to 400 degrees.

Toss chicken wings in your favorite wing sauce if desired. We love honey BBQ and Buffalo Sauce, but you can put anything you like on these wings. You can also leave them plain for a healthier, crispy perfect appetizer.
