If you’ve be interested in making an air fryer chicken wings and have been on the fence about it, I’m here to tell you: do it. They ended up crispy and perfectly cooked. We demolished these in 10 minutes flat. They were so good.
Ever since we got our air fryer, I’ve been wanting to make chicken wings and just 30 minutes ago, we did it!
Mike made these since I’m still suffering from RSI. I’m still using dictation so if this looks weird, you know why.
Anyway, I went with a combination of cornstarch and potato starch for the ultimate crispiness, but if you only have cornstarch, that works too. The genius of this recipe is the spice mix, which Mike came up with. It’s garlic-y and savory and just a hint sweet and really addictive. Make these wings, you won’t regret it!
