This is the BEST Air Fryer chicken wings recipe. With extra crispy skins, juicy meat and flavorful buffalo sauce, these chicken wings rival restaurant quality. Using an Air Fryer omits the unhealthy oil and takes half the time of a traditional oven to bake.
Why are Air Fried Chicken Wings better than traditional methods? Three reasons: No unhealthy oil, reduced cooking time and the forced circulating hot air creates a super crispy skin while maintaining a tender and juicy center.
To make chicken wings in the air fryer you only need 4 ingredients including baking powder, to help crisp the skin, and the popular Frank’s Hot Sauce. Why baking powder? Baking powder raises the PH level of the chicken wings to create a super crispy skin like you find in restaurants. You can fore-go the baking powder, if you like. It’s not mandatory but really helps the final product.
