Air fried chicken wings are perfect for game day or any day, really! Quick and easy, no extra oil, oh so crispy! Pop these in the Air Fryer for 30 minutes and you've got perfection.
It's hard to get perfectly crispy AND juicy wings from standing over a hot pan while getting splattered with oil. More to the point, who wants to when you could pop your wings in an Air Fryer? No need to even think about where you're going to put all that leftover oil and how long it's going to take you to clean the counter and floor when you spill it all over the place.
This air fried chicken wings recipe is perfect for those lazy Sunday afternoons when football has been on all day, and most likely will be on until bedtime. When you're ready for the first cold beer of the day and you're starting to get hungry but don't want to spend a bunch of time in the kitchen (and miss The Ohio State Buckeyes make the first touchdown of the season).
Bam! Toss some wings in a bit of baking powder and seasoning and throw them in the Air Fryer. You will get incredibly crispy and juicy wings. The next step is to toss them with your favorite sauce, or heck, just leave 'em plain and dip away. Whatever you do, don't forget to pull out your jar of homemade ranch dressing!
