Ingredients

  • Nonstick cooking spray for air fryer basket
  • 1 pound chicken wings split into flats and drummettes
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Chopped parsley for serving
  • Ranch dressing for serving

Instructions

  • Preheat the air fryer to 380°F. When heated, spray the basket with cooking spray.
  • Pat the chicken wings dry. Then transfer them to a large bowl. Toss the wings with olive oil, paprika and garlic powder; then season with salt and pepper.
  • Place the chicken wings in the air fryer so they are not touching. Cook for 10 minutes, then increase the temperature to 400°F, and cook until crisp and golden, about 6-8 more minutes.
  • Garnish the chicken wings with parsley, and serve with ranch dressing on the side, if desired

Notes

Storage: Store any leftovers in an airtight container. They will last up to 4 days in the fridge. Reheat in an air fryer at 360°F for 4 minutes or in the microwave until heated through.
Freezing Instructions: Freeze the cooked wings for up to a month and thaw them in the fridge overnight before reheating.
Equipment: I use the Skinnytaste by Vremi Air Fryer to make this recipe. It's easy to use with guides on the appliance, easy to clean up and I've been very happy with the results!
