Air Fryer Chicken Wing Cooking Tips:

Let chicken wings come to room temperature before cooking, 10-15 minutes.

Buy drumettes for a larger crowd. If you buy the whole wing, separate the drum from the flat.

How do you know when chicken wings are done?

Chicken wings are fully cooked when the internal temperature reaches 165°F. Anything over that and you’ll run the risk of drying out the chicken.

Can I use frozen chicken wings?

Yes, thaw frozen wings 12-24 hours in the fridge before using. Frozen chicken wings will not cook evenly in your air fryer or any other cooking device. You want to create a crispy exterior we want for this recipe. Thawed or fresh chicken works best for this recipe.

Can you bake these wings?

Yes, bake the chicken wings in a 400°F oven for 50 minutes, flipping them over after 25 minutes, then toss in garlic honey sauce. To make wings crispy add 1 teaspoon of baking powder to the seasoning mix.

Can you make ahead?

Fridge: Chicken Wings: Wings can be made one day in advance.

Honey Garlic Sauce: Garlic honey sauce can be made one day in advance. Keep in an air tight container for 5 days. Heat in the microwave for 15-30 seconds.

Freezer: Chicken Wings: You can make wings in advance, do not toss in sauce. Place in an airtight container, after it cools off. Keep in the freezer for 3 months. Thaw 24-48 hours before using.

Reheating: Chicken Wings: Reheat in a 350°F air fryer for 4-6 minutes.

How To cook Air Fryer Chicken Wings?

Place chicken wings in an even layer. If you have a smaller air fryer you’ll need cook in batches. Cook for 12 minutes, flip over cook for 12 minutes.

Why do you put baking powder on Chicken Wings?

The best way to get crispy wings in an air fryer is by adding some baking powder to your chicken wings. The baking powder will draw out the skin’s moisture, which will allow better browning and crispier wings. You will not taste the baking powder at all.

Do not use baking soda, only baking powder. However, baking powder contains baking soda. The addition of cream of tartar and cornstarch makes it a different ingredient.
