Ingredients

  • 1 lb chicken wings split into drums and flats
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 tsp garlic salt

Instructions

  • Gently rinse the chicken pieces and pat them dry with a paper towel.
  • Place the chicken pieces into a large bowl.
  • Pour the oil over the chicken.
  • Sprinkle the garlic salt over the chicken and toss to coat.
  • Place parchment or foil in the bottom of your air fryer basket for easy cleanup.
  • Arrange the chicken pieces in the lined fryer basket.
  • Air fry the chicken at 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes.
  • Flip the chicken pieces and cook for another 8-10 minutes.
  • In the last 2-3 minutes, open your air fryer basket and spray the chicken generously with oil to help crisp the chicken. (optional)
  • Serve and enjoy!

Notes

  • I have found the sweet spot of cooking to be around 16 minutes.  
  • Thicker wings will take longer to cook, so you may need to adjust your air fry cook time by a couple of minutes.
  • Keep in mind that there are many different models of air fryers on the market, so cooking times and temperatures might vary slightly.
Pro Tip: This recipe can be made in the air fryer unit with a basket or the air fryer oven. If you are using the air fryer oven, use the middle rack and select the "Air Fry" function.
