Deliciously crispy chicken wings with tender meat in less than 30 minutes.
1 1/2 lbs chicken wings
Avocado oil or olive oil in an oil sprayer
salt and pepper
Start with 1 1/2 pounds of chicken wings, mine measured out to seven whole wings. If they aren’t already cut use a sharp knife to cut between the joints. You’ll be able to find just the right spot to cut and when you do it’s pretty easy. Discard the tips or save for later to make chicken broth.
Spray the basket of your air fryer with oil and place the wings in the basket so they don’t overlap. Spritz the wings with the oil a couple of times and a little sprinkle of salt and pepper. Cook for 10 minutes at 400°.
Give them a little spritz of oil before turning to make sure they don’t stick. Turn them over and give them a couple more spritzes.
Cook for 10 more minutes at 400°.
Pro tip: If you make a second batch of chicken wings remove the inner basket from the air fryer and carefully pour out any grease that collected in the bottom basket into a heatproof cup or bowl. This will help keep the air fryer from smoking during the second batch from having too much grease in the bottom basket.
