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.
