  • Chicken wings (whole, drumettes, or flats)
  • Cooking oil (optional)
  • Seasonings of your choice (salt, pepper, garlic powder, paprika, etc.)


  1. Prep the wings: Pat the chicken wings dry with paper towels. This removes excess moisture, which helps the skin crisp up. You can leave them whole or separate them into drumettes and flats.
  2. Season the wings: In a large bowl, toss the wings with a little cooking oil (optional) and your favorite seasonings.
  3. Preheat and cook: Preheat your air fryer to around 400°F (200°C) for a few minutes. Arrange the wings in a single layer in the basket, making sure they're not touching. This allows for even air circulation and crisping.
  4. Flip and cook: Depending on the size of your wings and air fryer, cook for 16-22 minutes, flipping them halfway through. You can shake the basket a couple of times during cooking to ensure even crisping.
  5. Check for doneness: The wings are done when they are golden brown and crispy on the outside, and the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C) measured with a meat thermometer.


  • For extra crispy wings, you can crank up the heat to 400°F (200°C) for the last few minutes of cooking.
  • Don't overcrowd the basket. Cook the wings in batches if necessary.
  • You can use a variety of seasonings to flavor your wings. Try a store-bought poultry seasoning, Cajun spice mix, or even a rub for barbecue wings.
  • Once cooked, toss the wings in your favorite sauce for a delicious and flavorful appetizer or main course
