Chicken Wings in the Air Fryer

Chicken Wings in the Air Fryer:

Get ready for the ultimate delight: chicken wings in the air fryer, the crispiest and most delicious wings you’ve ever tasted! In less than 20 minutes, you’ll have a batch of finger-licking wings that will make you swear never to use any other cooking method again!

Preparation Time: 3 minutes
Cooking Time: 18 minutes
Total Time: 21 minutes


  1. 907 grams of chicken wings (drumettes and flats) (thawed if frozen)
  2. 1 tablespoon olive oil
  3. 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  4. 1 teaspoon onion powder
  5. 1 teaspoon paprika
  6. 1 teaspoon salt
  7. ½ teaspoon black pepper


  1. Prepare the chicken wings. If they are whole wings, separate them into drumettes and flats. Ensure they are thawed. Pat them dry completely (this will help them become crispy).
  2. Place the wings in a bowl and drizzle them with olive oil. Toss to coat. Add garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt, and black pepper. Toss to coat the wings thoroughly.
  3. Preheat the air fryer to 204°C for 2 minutes. Add the wings in a single layer to the air fryer (they should NOT touch) and cook for 10 minutes at 204°C.
  4. After the timer finishes, carefully open and flip the chicken wings.
  5. Cook for an additional 8 minutes.
  6. Remove the chicken wings and serve.


  1. Pat Dry: Before cooking, make sure to pat the chicken wings dry with paper towels. This helps remove excess moisture, which can interfere with crisping.
  2. Seasoning: Season the wings generously with your favorite spices or marinade. This can include salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, cayenne pepper, or any other flavors you enjoy.
  3. Preheat: Preheat your air fryer before adding the wings. This ensures that the wings start cooking immediately when you put them in, leading to better crispiness.
  4. Don’t Overcrowd: Arrange the wings in a single layer in the air fryer basket, making sure there’s some space between each piece. This allows air to circulate evenly around the wings for even cooking.
  5. Use a Rack: If your air fryer comes with a rack accessory, use it to elevate the wings. This allows air to circulate underneath the wings as well, promoting even crispiness.
  6. Cook in Batches: If you have a large batch of wings, it’s better to cook them in batches rather than overcrowding the air fryer. Overcrowding can lead to uneven cooking and soggy wings.
