  • 2 lbs chicken wings separated into drumette and flats
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Optional Sauces

  • 5-Spice Asian Wing Sauce
  • Your favorite Buffalo Wing Sauce
  • Garlic Parmesan Butter Wing Sauce


  1. Prepare chicken wings by cutting the drumette away from the flat and discarding the tip. See above for example.
  2. Place half of chicken wings in air fryer basket. Place basket into air fryer and turn air fryer to 380 degrees.

  3. Cook for 12 minutes then remove basket and detach from bottom where grease has fallen. Toss wings then place back in bottom and slide back into cooker. Cook 12 more minutes. 

  4. When timer goes off, raise temperature to 400 degrees and cook for another 5-6 minutes. This is the best way to create that crispy outer coating.
  5. Remove basket, separate from bottom and place wings on a large plate. Cover to keep warm.
  6. Repeat above directions with remaining wings.
  7. While wings are cooking make the Asian Wing Sauce and the Garlic Butter Wing Sauce. (recipes in note section)
  8. Serve wings with sauces on the side along with blue cheese, celery stalks and baby carrots.

  9. Makes 4 appetizer servings or 2 main meals.
