Knowing how to air fry chicken is a great kitchen skill to have. The air fryer is easier to clean up than a deep fryer and you need a lot less fat. It will heat up quick and is ideal for juicy moist chicken on the inside with a crunch on the outside.



2 pounds (1 kg) chicken wings, separated into flats and drums

Dry rub (optional)

Sauce (optional)


  • Preheat the air fryer to 380 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  • Season your chicken wings with dry rub (if liked).
  • Put the wings in the air fryer basket and slot it into the fryer.
  • Air fry the chicken wings for about 25 minutes, shaking the basket every 10 minutes for even cooking.
  • Now turn the temperature up to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) and cook for another 5 minutes or until the skin is crisp and golden brown.
  • You might have to crisp the wings in batches if your air fryer is small.
  • Toss the wings with your favorite buffalo sauce or BBQ sauce (if liked) and serve hot.
  • I love them buffalo style with blue cheese, ranch dressing, and carrot and celery sticks. Yum!
