Air Fryer Recipes for Wings
Good day everyone!
Let’s take a look at a simple air fryer recipe for wings. This should be relatively simple for novices and elites alike. Let’s look at our ingredients:
1 Tbs Cayenne Pepper
2 Tbs Cinnamon
2 Tbs Chili Powder
3 Tbs Garlic Power
1 Tbs pepper
4 Tbs Salt
1 Cup brown sugar
There are several ways to add the ingredients. Because of how I grew up, I prefer a lot of flavor. Some people will like to use a zip lock bag, throw all the ingredients in there with the chicken and shake everything up. This way is fine, but I personally season each individual piece to make sure the spices are spread evenly. If you’re low on time, you can use the other two methods. The third option is to throw all the chicken in a bowl with the spices and mix everything up.
If your wings are frozen, you can just leave the unopened bag in the sink overnight in cold water. Some people seem to think that they can use hot water to defrost their food quickly…DO NOT DO THIS!!
If you defrost any meat in hot water, the meat will begin to cook and you will ruin your product. I’m a cook, take it from someone who knows. Also, if the bag is open, you want to have the chicken sit under a constant flow of running water to defrost. It is very bad practice to have chicken just sit in cold, dead water. It can cause issues later, so just have a constant stream.
Preheat the air fryer at 400 degrees for 5 minutes. I will say this, learn how your air fryer behaves first. With my conventional oven, I see a lot of recipes say; “set your oven for 350”. Well, my particular oven needs to be set for 450. It’s the same with air fryers. You may have to adjust the temperature at a setting that works for you.
I know the fryers are advertised as oiless, but you’re going to have to use either a small amount of oil, or some non-stick spray on the basket before placing the chicken inside. You don’t want the skin of the chicken sticking to the air fryer, and you’ll be thankful you did when you have to wash it.
Once the chicken is clean, you can start adding ingredients. If you want, you can dry the chicken with paper towels, but I’ve never had to, so it’s your choice.
Reccomended 16 wings, but the amount is up to you and how much your air fryer can take. If you have a larger version, obviously, you will be able to add more. One compliant that is common amongst all air fryers is that they the food may dry out. Make sure you’re monitoring closely, so your entrees don’t dry out.
Make sure the chicken is spread out, you do not want to stack them on top of each other. I know some of you may think; “Oh I can just jam some more chicken on the top.” Please don’t do that, you’re just setting yourself up for failure.
All the pieces of chicken should be at the same level. It will also help the chicken maintain that crispiness that we’re all looking for.
Add all the ingredients.
Some of you guys like the zip lock bag method, but I like to take my time and season each piece individually. Some of you like to add pinches of seasoning, which is fine, but you might want to be able to taste your food.
If I can’t physically see the seasoning, I’ll add some more, but be careful, none of you are me. Keep in mind, you can always add ingredients, but it’s sometimes difficult and often impossible to remove them.
Once you’re satisfied with the seasoning, place the chicken in your air fryer and let it cook for 8 minutes, flip them over and add another 8 minutes.
Please let me know how your chicken has turned out, thank you for taking a look at my air fryer recipes for wings
