This recipe is for some of the crispiest Chicken Wings I have eaten outside of a restaurant in a long time, and they are made with an Air Fryer. While I like the classic wings that are twice cooked, steamed, and then baked or fried, I mostly avoid baking them at home as the preparations take almost a day.
Using a deep air fryer, you cook the wings twice: first at a lower temperature to remove fat from the skin, and then at a high temperature to keep the skin fresh. Even with two turns in an air skillet, these chicken wings are ready in under an hour from start to finish. And they’re so crunchy, and buffalo sauce is your choice!
