Why We Love Air Fryer Chicken Wings?

Air fryer chicken wings offer several benefits that make them a popular choice for many people.

  1. Healthier Option: Traditional frying methods often require submerging food in oil, which can add a lot of unnecessary fat and calories to the dish. In contrast, an air fryer uses the circulation of hot air to cook the wings, which can significantly cut down on the amount of oil used and thus makes it a healthier option.
  2. Crispy Texture: Air fryers are known for their ability to achieve a wonderfully crispy exterior on foods, similar to traditional deep-frying. So, you can enjoy that perfect crunchy bite without the guilt of excessive oil.
  3. Efficiency: Air fryers typically cook faster than traditional ovens because they circulate hot air around the food more efficiently. This makes them an excellent choice for busy individuals.
  4. Less Mess: Anyone who’s deep-fried food knows it can be a messy process, with oil splattering on the cooktop and hard-to-clean pots and pans. With an air fryer, you can achieve a similar effect with less mess, as the process is contained within the appliance.
  5. Flavor Retention: Because an air fryer requires less oil, the true flavors of your chicken wings are more pronounced. Plus, if you’re adding a rub or a sauce, it tends to stick better to air-fried wings, so every bite is packed with flavor.
  6. Easy to Use: Even for novice cooks, air fryers are generally easy to operate. Most have straightforward settings, and cooking with them often involves just a few simple steps – making them less intimidating than some other kitchen appliances.

And, of course, you’ll need your air fryer ready and raring to go!

Step 1: Prep the Wings

Start by patting your chicken wings dry with a paper towel. Why? Because moisture is the arch-nemesis of crispiness. And then, prepare a large bowl to combine the salt, pepper, baking powder, garlic powder, and Smoked paprika. Mix until well combined.

Add the chicken wings to the bowl with the seasoning mixture. Toss the wings until evenly coated.

Be careful not to overcrowd them – they need space for the hot air to circulate and achieve that heavenly crunch. Cook for 14 minutes.

Using a pair of tongs, carefully remove the chicken wings from the air fryer to a plate or serving tray. You can enjoy these deliciously crispy wings on their own, or tossed in your favorite sauce.

FAQs about Chicken Wings in Air Fryer

Why are my wings not crispy in air fryer?

A few factors could be contributing to your wings not reaching their peak crispiness in the air fryer:
1. Overcrowding: If you’re loading too many wings into your air fryer at once, they won’t cook evenly.
2. Insufficient Drying: Moisture is the enemy of crispiness. Make sure your wings are thoroughly patted dry before you season and cook them.
3. Not Enough Cooking Time: If your wings are not getting crispy, you might not be cooking them for long enough.
4. Lack of Oil: While one of the advantages of an air fryer is the ability to cook with less oil, a small amount is still necessary to achieve a crispy exterior. Try lightly tossing your wings in a bit of oil before air frying.

Do you need to flour wings in the air fryer?

While you certainly can use flour for an extra layer of crust on your chicken wings, it’s not a necessity when using an air fryer. If you prefer your wings breaded, you can lightly dust them with flour or a mix of flour and spices before cooking.
