Crispy, juicy, and packed with flavor, these air fryer chicken wings are the perfect appetizer or snack. Enjoy the delicious taste of fried wings with a fraction of the oil and mess.


  • 2 pounds chicken wings, separated into flats and drumettes
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • Optional: your favorite wing sauce (buffalo, BBQ, etc.)
  • Optional: chopped green onions or parsley for garnish


  1. Preheat the Air Fryer: Set your air fryer to 400°F (200°C) and preheat for about 5 minutes.
  2. Prepare the Wings: Pat the chicken wings dry with paper towels. This helps them get crispy. Place the wings in a large bowl.
  3. Season the Wings: Add the olive oil, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt, and black pepper to the bowl. Toss the wings until they are evenly coated with the seasoning.
  4. Arrange in Air Fryer: Arrange the wings in a single layer in the air fryer basket. You may need to cook in batches depending on the size of your air fryer.
  5. Cook the Wings: Cook the wings for 25-30 minutes, shaking the basket every 10 minutes to ensure even cooking. The wings are done when they are crispy and golden brown.
  6. Optional Sauce Toss: If you prefer saucy wings, transfer the cooked wings to a bowl and toss them with your favorite wing sauce.
  7. Serve: Serve the wings hot, garnished with chopped green onions or parsley if desired.

Enjoy your crispy and delicious air fryer chicken wings!
