  • 2lb (1kg) chicken wings separated into drumettes and wingettes
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika or smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper


  • Wash and pat dry the chicken wings, you can either season them or put them straight in the Air Fryer basket. If you choose to season then, then toss the wings in paprika, garlic granules, salt, and pepper.
  • Place the seasoned wings in the Air Fryer basket (make sure that you don't overcrowd it, and work in batches) and insert it. Cook for 20 minutes at 395°F° (200°C) shaking the basket at least twice so that they cook evenly.
  • The cooking time depends on the size of the wings that you're using, but start with 20 minutes, and see if you need to cook for a bit longer. Either serve right away or transfer to a bowl and serve or toss in your favorite wing sauce if desired.


  • Every time you cook chicken, you have to make sure that the internal temperature of the chicken should be around 75C/165F. That's the best way to make sure that the chicken is safe to eat.
  • To reheat the chicken wings in the Air Fryer, put them back in the air fryer basket, and reheat on 200C (395F) for 5 minutes or until they're heated through.
  • To cook wings from frozen, you will need to increase the cooking time by 5 minutes.
  • Serve with fresh baby carrots, and celery. Coleslaw, fries, fried mozzarella sticks, and onion rings. Ranch or blue cheese dipping sauce.
