Air Fryer Chicken Wings are so easy to make and come out crunchy and perfectly cooked. We are having way too much frying fun with our new air fryer. We just had to put my new gadget to the test, and what better food to test out than chicken wings! The whole fam was in on this one!

Prepping Chicken Wings

The recipe for these chicken wings is simple to put together. Just coat the wings in Olive oil and season with some sea salt and pepper. The oil helps crisp up the skin while it is frying in air!

We have become slightly obsessed with air frying things these days, but these wings are definitely our favorites so far!

Air Fryer Chicken Wings

Our air fryer is just a little guy, 1.5 L, so we can only do about 5-6 wings at a time. I am now in the market for a larger one so we can make bigger batches.

The wings go in the air fryer at 380ºF for 25 minutes, make sure to stop it half way through and flip all of the wings over so they get crisp on all sides. At the end of the cycle, give the wings one more flip and crank up the heat to 400ºF for 5 more minutes.
