Ingredients

Units Scale
  • Nonstick cooking spray, for the basket
  • 1 pound chicken wings, split at the joint and tips removed
  • Kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup hot sauce, such as Frank’s RedHot
  • Ranch or blue cheese dressing, for serving
  • Celery or Carrot Sticks

Instructions

  1. Spray the basket of a 3.5-quart air fryer with cooking spray and set aside. Pat the chicken wings dry and sprinkle generously with salt. Place the wings in the fryer basket so they are not touching (if necessary to fit, line up the drumettes standing upright along the sides). Set the air fryer to 360 degrees F and cook for 12 minutes, then flip the wings with tongs and cook for 12 minutes more. Flip the wings again, increase the heat to 390 degrees F and cook until the outsides are extra-crispy, about 6 minutes more.
  2. Meanwhile, warm the butter in a microwave-safe bowl in the microwave until melted, about 1 minute. Whisk in the hot sauce.
  3. Toss the wings with the butter mixture to coat in a large bowl and serve with dressing on the side.

Notes

  • While you are air-frying. Add water to the air fryer drawer when cooking fatty foods. Don’t overcrowd the basket. Flip foods over halfway through the cooking time. Open the air fryer as often as you like to check for doneness.
