What is the best way to make chicken wings – Air Fryer Recipe
- After trying these 3 ingredient buffalo wings in an air fryer, I wouldn’t make them any other way.
- Using an air fryer instead of an oven saves time and effort, especially when it comes to cleaning.
- The end result was delicious – wings cooked to perfection, slightly crispy and juicy.
I’ve always been a huge fan of Buffalo wings, but I rarely make them myself. Most of the recipes involve either deep frying or roasting in the oven, and to be honest, it doesn’t seem worth it.
But I found a recipe Smile Sandwich which claimed to produce air-fried wings that are “extremely crispy and golden brown” without any “messy oil.”
The blogger was right – I couldn’t believe how easy it was.
Recipe Don’t waste any time with pickles or defrosting
If you’re cooking for a party or looking for something quick, this recipe is super easy.
It does not require you to make a marinade or dry rub for the chicken. And you don’t have to wait for the ice to thaw – if your wings freeze, you can easily keep them in the air fryer for longer.
With the air fryer, you don’t have to worry about hot oil or greasy frying pans. It’s as simple as throwing wings to cook.
Air fryer cooks wings evenly every time
Air fryers are similar to small convection ovens in that heat circulates constantly around the food inside. The less crowded the baskets, the faster the food cooks.
I preheated my air fryer to 375°F and sprayed the baskets and wings with cooking oil.
The key to making good wings is to shake the basket every five minutes or so and finish on high heat.
The wings are almost done cooking after 25 minutes, so finish them with five minutes at 400°F to get them crispy.
The sauce for these wings is a mixture of barbecue and buffalo
This recipe uses a combination of roast and buffalo to make a tangy sauce, but you can really use any type of sauce you want. If you’re making these wings for a party, you can even have people pick their wings.
Making the sauce from scratch takes extra time, so buying it makes the recipe faster, too.
I dunked the wings in the sauce while they were still hot from the air fryer.
This recipe was everything I promised – I’ll never use another method again
The cooked wings were juicy and had a slightly crunchy texture from an air fryer.
The BBQ-Buffalo sauce mix was sweet, tangy, and had a little kick. I’m a huge fan of Vallow, so this delicious combo was a winner in my book.
