Get ready for some unbeatable game day snacks with air fryer wings! These crispy fried treats are an unforgettable way to chow down while cheering on your favorite team. Forget the mess of deep-frying – you don’t have time when there’s a big game at stake! The air fryer makes it easy and fast; within minutes, this party staple is extra-crispy, begging to be drowned in delicious sauces or spice rubs. So fire up that air frier – it’s crunchy chicken wing season!

Top Tips for Crispy Air Fryer Wings

If you want the crunchiest air fryer wings possible, follow these two tips! First of all, make sure your chicken is completely dry – pat it down with some paper towels and even let that chill in the fridge for a bit. Secondly, get those frying temperatures just right: experiment until you find what works best; less time might mean crispier results.

What Temp?

Craving wings? Look no further! Whip up some crispy deliciousness in your air fryer in just 30 minutes. Start by preheating to 380° and cook for 12 minutes before flipping, then give them an extra 12-minute flip. To get that golden crunch on the outside without sacrificing the soft inside, crank it up one more notch with a 5-minute 400° finish—yum! Pro tip: If you’re adding more wings to this recipe, make sure those little bad boys stay spaced out within the basket; otherwise, they won’t come out as perfectly crisp or evenly cooked – not worth skimping quality over quantity here, folks!

What Type of Wings

Whether you’re in the mood for classic buffalo wings or want something more adventurous, like our lip-smacking Korean fried chicken sauce or zesty apricot glaze – there’s an option here to suit every palate. And if it’s just some simple flavourful deliciousness your heart desires, why not try lemon pepper seasoning?


Forget store-bought dressing – why not craft your own ranch? Combine buttermilk’s cool and tart goodness with abundant fresh herbs for a tasty twist to complement these wings. Or, if you’re in more of a blue cheese mood, that’ll do nicely too!

Mix and match these wings with your favorite game-day snacks for a perfectly crunchy and flavorful spread. Try loaded potato skins, fiery chicken taquitos, or air fryer sweet potato fries – yum!
