Air Fryer Chicken Wings

Adjust cooking time for thicker or thinner chicken wings. Some brands of Air Fryers will cook slower or faster than others, adjust accordingly.
We cooked the 2 lbs. of chicken wings in a 3.4 qt. Air Fryer. For that size of air fryer, 2 lbs. is about the max without overcrowding the air fryer. If you have a larger size of air fryer, you can probably cook larger batches.

  • 2 pounds (907 g) chicken wings
  • Kosher salt , or sea salt, to taste
  • black pepper , to taste
  • garlic salt , optional



  • If needed, pat dry the chicken wings. Season with salt, pepper, and optional garlic salt.
  • Air Fry at 400°F for 30-35 minutes, flipping the wings over a couple times while cooking.
  • If using a sauce, toss with a little sauce, then air fry for another 4 minutes (otherwise just cook the 30 minutes or until the chicken wings are golden).
  • If using a sauce, toss with extra sauce after cooking or serve sauce on the side for dipping. Serve them warm and enjoy!


  • No Oil Necessary. The wings have enough fat in the skin to crisp up nicely on their own.
  • Shake several times for even cooking.
  • Don’t overcrowd fryer basket.
  • If using a sauce, it is added in just at the end, otherwise it often burns before the chicken wings are cooked.
  • Recipes were cooked in 3-4 qt air fryers. If using a larger air fryer, the recipe might cook quicker so adjust cooking time. 
  • If cooking in multiple batches, the first batch will take longer to cook if Air Fryer is not already pre-heated.
  • Remember to set a timer to shake/flip/toss the food as directed in recipe.

If your air fryer is preheated or if you are cooking multiple batches, you may need to reduce timing by a few minutes (unless preheating is called for in the recipe).
