It’s time for my air fryer recipe of the month. With the Labor Day holiday in mind, I’m thinking that healthier air-fried Buffalo-style chicken wings would be a good option. This recipe makes excellent, crispy wings that you’d never know weren’t deep-fried in oil. It’s a keeper!
- 2 lbs. chicken wings – thawed, if frozen
- 1/2 Tbsp salt
- 1 tsp. ground black pepper
- 1/2 cup hot sauce such as Frank’s RedHot
- 2 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted
- 1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
- 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
- cooking spray
- Season the chicken wings generously with salt and pepper.
- Spray the air fryer basket with cooking spray and preheat the fryer to 380 degrees F.
- Place the chicken wings in the basket (stand some up on end if needed to make room) and fry the wings for 10 minutes.
- After 10 minutes, flip the wings over and fry for another 10 minutes.
- Turn the air fryer up to 400 degree F. and cook the wings for 5-6 more minutes.
- As the chicken cooks, whisk together the hot sauce, melted butter, Worcestershire sauce and garlic powder in a large bowl.
- Remove the cooked wings from the air fryer basket and toss them with the hot sauce in the bowl. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce or just enjoy the Buffalo wings as they are.
