Tips

Here are a few tips to make sure that your air fryer chicken wings recipe turns out perfectly. 

  • Be sure to use oil spray or olive oil on the air fryer basket so the wings do not stick. 
  • You will need to cook the wings in batches if you are doubling the recipe. Do not overcrowd the air fryer basket or the wings will not cook evenly. Make sure they are in a single layer.
  • Make sure the wings are completely thawed before cooking. Frozen wings will not cook evenly in the air fryer. 
  • The sauce can be made ahead of time and stored in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. 
  • I recommend using grated parmesan cheese or finely shredded cheese for this recipe. 
  • Dip these in ranch dressing, buffalo sauce, blue cheese, or even more melted garlic butter. 
  • Garnish with fresh parsley for some added color. 
  • Make sure that the internal temperature of your wings reaches 165 degrees. 
  • If you are using frozen wings, make sure that you thaw them first, and then pat them dry with paper towels before you season them. 
  • Serve with celery or a side salad for a low carb meal.
