Ingredients

Instructions

  • Melt the butter in a microwave-safe bowl, about 1-minute. Stir in the hot sauce. Reserve
  • Place the chicken wings in a large bowl and pat dry the chicken wings with paper towels to remove any excess moisture. Add salt, garlic powder, paprika, cayenne pepper, and black pepper and mix well coating the wings evenly with all the seasonings.
  • Lightly spray the bottom of the air fryer basket with cooking spray. Line the wings in the basket keeping some room around each wing for the air to circulate. Do not overcrowd, depending on the size of your Air Fryer basket you may need to cook in batches.
  • Cook the wings for 15 minutes at 370°F (190°C). Shake the basket halfway through, so the wings cook evenly.
  • When the time is up, shake the basket, increase the temperature to 400°F (200°C) and cook for 5 more minutes or until the skin is golden brown and crispy.
  • Take out the cooked wings in a large bowl and drizzle the hot sauce over. Gently mix so the wings are coated all over with the sauce.
  • Serve immediately with ranch or bleu cheese dressing along with carrot and celery sticks.

Notes

Tips:
  1. I like Bell Evan's wings that are already cut in half. If you have whole wings make sure to cut them into half (wingettes and drumettes) and discard the tips.
  2. Depending on the size of the wingettes and drumettes you may need to adjust the cooking time. I like to use a digital thermometer to make sure that the internal temperature of the thickest part is at least 165°F (75°C)
Oven/Grill Instructions:
  • Oven - Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line up wings on a greased grilling rack. Place the rack on top of the baking tray to catch all the drippings. Bake the wings for about 20-25 mins (in a convection oven) or up to 40 mins. 
  • Outdoor Grill - Wings can also be cooked on a preheated outdoor grill at 400 degrees F. Grease the grill grates and place the wings on the grates. Cook for 20 minutes or until the internal temperature of the thickest part is at least 165°F (75°C)
Take out the cooked wings in a large bowl and drizzle the hot sauce over. Gently mix so the wings are coated all over with the sauce. Serve immediately with ranch or bleu cheese dressing along with carrot and celery sticks.
