Air Fryer Chicken Wings

Air Fryer Chicken Wings

These air fryer chicken wings are crispy and seasoned to perfection. The best part about these air fryer chicken wings is that I can enjoy them and still stick to my clean eating plan because they are not fried. It’s a win wing (I couldn’t help myself)!

Air Fryer vs Oven

I was on the fence about getting an air fryer. There was so much hype about them, but I really didn’t want another appliance on our countertop. I already have a crockpot. However, when I saw them on sale, I broke down and purchased one. So far I’m liking it. It’s easy to clean and the food comes out crispy without all of the oil. I also like that I don’t have to use my big oven, especially when the weather is hot. In addition, I find the air fryer cooks food faster than the traditional oven. I would have had to cook my wings for much longer in my traditional oven, to achieve the same level of crispiness. However, I think I may be able to achieve the same results from a toaster oven.

How to Make Air Fryer Chicken Wings:

I wash my wings in lemon juice or white vinegar and rinse with cold water. After I rinse my wings I pat dry them thoroughly with paper towels to get all of the excess water out.


  • 20 wings (I had a mix of flats and drums
  • one fresh lemon or lime
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Onion Powder
  • Garlic Powder
  • Fresh cilantro *Optional


  1. Pat the chicken wings dry thoroughly with a paper towel
  2. Lay chicken wings out on a plate and season generously on both sides with all of the dry seasonings
  3. Place chicken wings in a bowl or gallon size zip lock bag
  4. Add minced garlic and the juice of 1 lemon/lime
  5. Line the bottom of your air fryer with foil for easy cleanup.
  6. Place chicken wings in your air frying basket. Don’t overcrowd the basket, space the wings. My basket holds 10 wings at a time.
  7. Set the air fryer to 400 degrees for 10 minute
  8. Flip chicken wings and set them on 400 degrees for another 10 minutes.
  9. Set air fryer chicken wings on a plate and garnish with cilantro.
