Push the deep fryer aside and pull out the air fryer instead next game day. There is no need to add all of that oil when you can achieve crispy wings straight out of the air fryer. Serve with celery sticks and ranch dressing, if desired.

These were the best wings I've ever made. We devoured the whole 3 pounds I made. I didn't make the sauce but used bottled wing sauce and BBQ sauce. Next time I'll at least double if not triple it. The were delicious and a lot less greasy then regular wings either fried or baked. Read More

I loved these. Making them in the airfryer is so easy. The wings are super crispy and not oily. The sauce is delicious. I used Chinese rice wine with 4% acidity which turned out nicely. I served these with white rice and cool veggies to tame the heat. Read More
