Air Fryer Fried Chicken Wings

Air frying chicken wings is a fantastic way to enjoy crispy and flavorful wings without the excess oil. Here’s a simple recipe for making air fryer fried chicken wings:


  • 2 pounds chicken wings
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • Cooking spray or oil


  1. Prepare the Chicken Wings: Pat the chicken wings dry with paper towels. In a large bowl, toss the wings with baking powder, garlic powder, paprika, salt, and black pepper until they are evenly coated.
  2. Preheat the Air Fryer: Preheat the air fryer to 380°F (193°C) for a few minutes.
  3. Arrange the Chicken Wings in the Air Fryer: Place the seasoned chicken wings in the air fryer basket in a single layer, leaving some space between the wings for even cooking. You might need to cook the wings in batches depending on the size of your air fryer.
  4. Cook the Chicken Wings: Air fry the chicken wings for 25-30 minutes, flipping them halfway through the cooking time, until they are golden brown and crispy. Make sure to check for an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C) to ensure that the wings are fully cooked.
  5. Check for Crispiness: If you prefer extra crispy wings, you can spray the wings with cooking spray or brush them with a little oil halfway through the cooking process. This will help to achieve a crispier texture.
  6. Serve: Once the chicken wings are cooked to your desired level of crispiness, remove them from the air fryer and let them rest for a few minutes before serving. You can enjoy the wings as they are or toss them in your favorite wing sauce.

Feel free to serve the air-fried chicken wings with dipping sauces, such as ranch dressing, blue cheese dressing, or barbecue sauce, and your favorite sides. These crispy and delicious air fryer fried chicken wings are perfect for parties, game nights, or as a tasty snack. Enjoy!
