Easy Air Fryer Chicken Wings

The easiest way to make crispy-on-the-outside, tender on the inside chicken wings is in an air fryer! These wings are delicious with your favorite sauce – we coat ours in Frank’s Red Hot Buffalo Sauce mixed with a little unsalted butter :)

I use a 5.8qt Cosori Air Fryer, but any air fryer will work!

What you’ll need:

  • 2lbs chicken wingettes (we use Perdue)
  • Salt and pepper
  • Your favorite sauce for coating

How to:

  1. Preheat air fryer for 5 mins (at 380°F)
  2. Pat dry chicken wingettes and lay in a single layer in preheated fryer basket
  3. Close fryer and hit “chicken” function (or cook at 380°F) for 40 minutes
  4. At the 20 minute mark, pause fryer and turn wings. Close and continue cooking
  5. Remove from fryer and coat with your favorite sauce

  • When making a large batch, place cooked wings on a sheet pan and keep in a warm oven until ready to coat
