Hey everyone,

Let me tell you about my secret weapon for perfectly crispy chicken wings: the air fryer! No more thawing, no more mess – just delicious wings in under 20 minutes. Plus, I’ve got a killer honey buffalo sauce recipe that’ll have you begging for more.

Air fryers are seriously amazing. They can take frozen foods like fries and taquitos and turn them into restaurant-worthy snacks. They cook everything super fast too, which is perfect for busy weeknights. These wings are no exception – they’re going to be your new favorite appetizer!

I always have a bag of frozen wings in my freezer, and this air fryer method is the absolute best way to cook them. You get all the crispy goodness without the greasy mess of deep-frying. The honey buffalo sauce is insanely easy to make with just a few pantry staples, and it’s the perfect sweet and spicy balance.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Chicken wings (bone-in or boneless, your choice!)
  • Olive oil (to make those wings extra crispy)
  • Spices (garlic powder, paprika, salt, and pepper for a simple rub)
  • Buffalo sauce (your favorite brand or homemade works great)
  • Honey (for sweetness and to thicken the sauce)
  • Worcestershire sauce (adds a savory kick)

Making these wings is a breeze! In 20 minutes flat, you’ll have a delicious appetizer with minimal cleanup. Just grab your favorite dipping sauce and get ready to dig in.

Here’s the step-by-step:

  1. Defrost in the Air Fryer: Pop those frozen wings in the basket and cook at 400°F for 10 minutes. Then, take them out and drain any liquid that’s collected.
  2. Toss and Season: Mix the olive oil, garlic powder, paprika, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Toss the wings with the spice mixture until they’re well coated, then put them back in the air fryer basket.
  3. Cook Time: Let them crisp up for another 10-12 minutes, or until they reach an internal temperature of 165°F.
  4. Glaze it Up: While the wings are cooking, whisk together the buffalo sauce, honey, and Worcestershire sauce in a separate bowl. Once the wings are done, brush them with the glaze and serve immediately.

Pro-Tips for Perfect Air Fryer Wings:

  • Don’t Crowd the Basket: Make sure there’s enough space between the wings so they cook evenly. You might need to cook them in batches.
  • Spice it Up: Want your honey buffalo sauce with a little more heat? Add a pinch of cayenne pepper at a time until you reach your desired spice level.
  • Temperature is Key: Always check the internal temperature of your wings with a meat thermometer. They’re safe to eat when they reach 165°F.
  • Classic Sides: Wings love fresh veggies like celery and carrots for dipping. You can also pair them with other air-fried goodies like fries or onion rings.
  • Dipping Duos: No wing night is complete without delicious dips! Try making your own ranch or blue cheese dressing to take your wings to the next level.

So there you have it! Easy, crispy air fryer chicken wings with a finger-licking good honey buffalo sauce. Give it a try and let me know what you think!
