MEET A GAME CHANGER: Once you’ve had air fryer wings, we guarantee you’ll never want them any other way. Our air fryer wings have ultra crispy skin with sauce options ranging from classic buffalo to hot Caribbean to satisfy whatever your craving (or mix and match for the ultimate variety). Whether you’re looking for an easy appetizer for your next party, a game day food recipe to please a crowd, or a delicious weeknight meal that you keep to yourself (we won’t judge), these air fryer wings are a simple yet satisfying recipe that you will come back to.

The key to this recipe is in the name: the famous air fryer. Say goodbye to soggy, oil-soaked fenders! The air fryer gives the desired crispy skin without using oil, which makes this dish a healthier and lower calorie option than other oil-heavy recipes. Instead, hot air circulation cooks the wings while maintaining a juicy, tender center. Tip: Be sure to cook the wings in batches for maximum crispiness! Frying in one layer ensures that every wing gets that mouth-watering texture.

No marinating or preheating is necessary, so this three-step meal is a breeze to prepare. Just choose a favorite sauce (or two), whip out that air fryer, and you’ll be munching on the perfect party snack in no time.
