I’ve been hearing a lot about air fryers lately so I had to get one and test it out.  My hesitations for the air fryer is that it would be too small to make anything for my family without having to cook in batches.  I was wrong!

I went with the biggest Air Fryer I could find, that had really good reviews, and a great price.  I ended up going with this model.  It is an “off brand” but I couldn’t consider going with the Phillips XXL Air Fryer because I didn’t know if I would even use it that often to justify 3 times the price.


chicken wings in an air fryer

To get started, I oiled the inside of my air fryer with some avocado oil and a paper towel.  I would avoid cooking spray because it will cause build up.

I patted my fresh chicken wings dry, then I seasoned them with salt and pepper, and placed them in the air fryer.

I put the Air Fryer basket in the machine, I set the temperature to 380F and the time to 20 minutes.

About every 5 minutes, I opened the air fryer basket and I shook the wings just to make sure they cooked evenly.

After the 25 minutes are up, I turn the temperature up to 400F and I set the time for 5 minutes.

Look at how crispy these air fryer chicken wings get!

      How did yours look? They should be in a single layer, so if you basket is smaller, you will have to work in batches. Shake the basket every 8 minutes so they cook evenly.

    The recipe says fresh chicken wings. If I have frozen chicken wings, should I thaw them out or just put them in frozen? Also I noticed in the video that you did not wipe the basket with oil. Does it matter if I do this or not? Thank you so much. I’m looking forward to try my air fryer for the first time

    Do you oil the basket when you say you oil the inside of the air fryer?
