Anyone who’s ever indulged in a plate of crispy chicken wings knows that the secret to the perfect wing lies in the cooking method. Traditional fried chicken wings are undoubtedly delicious, but the mess and oil required to make them at home can be a major deterrent for many home cooks. Luckily, there’s an easier, healthier way to achieve that same addictive crunch and flavor – the air fryer.

1. Air Fryer Chicken Wings


  • 2 lbs chicken wings, drumettes and flats separated
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper

For Serving (optional)

  • Your favorite wing sauce (e.g. buffalo, BBQ, honey garlic)
  • Ranch or blue cheese dressing


Pat the chicken wings dry with paper towels. Place in a large bowl.

Add the olive oil, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt, and pepper. Toss to coat the wings evenly.

Preheat your air fryer to 380°F.

Working in batches if needed, arrange the wings in a single layer in the air fryer basket, making sure they are not touching.

Air fry for 22-26 minutes, flipping the wings halfway through, until golden brown and crispy.

Transfer the cooked wings to a clean bowl. Toss with your desired wing sauce, if using.

Serve the air fryer chicken wings hot, with ranch or blue cheese dressing for dipping on the side.

These air fryer chicken wings are a quick and easy way to get super crispy, flavor-packed wings without deep frying. The air fryer cooks them to perfection with a fraction of the oil. Toss them in your favorite sauce for a delicious game day or party snack!
