2 servings


  • 1 ½ pounds chicken wings and drummettes

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil

  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika

  • 1 tablespoon chili powder

  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground cumin

  • 1 ½ teaspoons onion powder

  • 1 ½ teaspoons garlic powder

  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground black pepper

  • 1 ½ teaspoons kosher salt

  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper, or more to taste


  1. Rinse chicken and pat dry. Place in a large bowl, drizzle with oil, and toss to coat.

  2. Combine paprika, chili powder, cumin, onion powder, garlic powder, black pepper, salt, and cayenne in a small bowl. Sprinkle over chicken and toss until evenly covered.

  3. Preheat an air fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) according to manufacturer's instructions.

  4. Arrange chicken in the basket of the preheated air fryer in a single layer, not touching. Cook until no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, about 12 minutes, turning halfway through. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). For crispier wings, increase temperature to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) and cook for 2 to 3 minutes more.

  5. Let rest for a few minutes before serving.
