CRISPY AIR FRYER CHICKEN WINGS — These crispy, delicious chicken wings are tossed in a dry rub and air fried to golden brown perfection–ready to be dipped in all of your favorite wing sauces!
I recently gave my parents an air fryer for Christmas, because I love mine so much, and I knew they loved it too. These Crispy Air Fryer Chicken Wings were one of the first recipes they tried, and it’s a real winner!
Really, you’re getting two recipes in one here, since you won’t use all of the dry rub for one batch of wings. If you keep it tightly covered, the dry rub will store for up to two years!
Which means you can store it in an airtight container and use it on burgers, chicken breasts, steak, pork chops, and of course, more wings!
You’ll use 2-3 tablespoons of the dry rub for every two pounds of chicken wings, so you’ll definitely have plenty leftover to use another time.
My biggest tip for getting super crispy wings is to rinse them in cool water and then pat them thoroughly dry with paper towels before you season them and add them to the air fryer.
These were hands-down the best wings I’ve ever had! The seasoning is perfect, and my family was happy to eat these wings straight from the air fryer.
Of course, we do love adding sauce to our wings, and this recipe is perfect for that! You can dip the wings in your favorite sauces, or put the wings in a big bowl and toss with your favorite sauce to coat.
Buffalo sauce is always a hit around here, and barbecue sauce is a favorite of my youngest son. But the possibilities are endless, so don’t be afraid to experiment.
A side of Ranch or blue cheese dressing is obviously a must! And it goes without saying these wings are perfect for game day.
