Chicken Wings in the Air Fryer

We love Chinese take out chicken wings here in the Northeast. I wanted to try the chicken wings in the air fryer, but couldn’t find out what the restaurants put on the wings for marinade.

So, I decided to concoct my own version and see how it goes.

I took chicken wingettes (the wings cut in sections, minus the tip), washed dried and put in a zipper bag.

I added the marinade ingredients and put back in the fridge for a few hours.

I simply added a few to the air fryer basket and baked on 360 degrees F for about 24 minutes. Then I turned up the air fryer temperature to 390 degrees F and cooked for 6 minutes.

These were really meaty wings and they were cooked perfect. Hubby said they tasted a lot like the wings at the Chinese restaurant.

Try these wings, I’m sure they will be a crowd pleaser.
