How to make Air Fryer Chicken Wings


Turn on the air fryer and let it preheat. Using a clean paper towel, press out the excess moisture from the chicken wings and season them generously with salt. 


Place the chicken wings in your air fryer, spaced out evenly so that the wings are not touching each other. Cook until they are golden brown and the skin is crispy, flipping once during the cook time. Increase the temperature a bit and cook a few additional minutes so that they crisp up even more. 


Toss in your sauce of choice and serve. Enjoy!

How to know when Air Fryer Chicken Wings are done

These chicken wings will be done and ready to enjoy when they are golden and crispy and the inside reaches a temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit. This will take approximately 24 minutes, flipping once halfway!

Chicken Wings FAQ

Can you put raw chicken in the air fryer?Absolutely! The air fryer is capable of cooking chicken right from raw!

Should I thaw food before cooking it in the air fryer?While it is recommended to thaw meat and vegetables before air frying them, it’s not totally necessary. See next question for details!
