How To Make Our Air Fryer Buffalo Chicken Wings Recipe:
Begin by patting dry the chicken wings with a paper towel.
Then, spray the air fryer insert basket with nonstick cooking spray.
Now, use a large resealable plastic bag and pour in the flour, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, and salt.
Shake it all together until they are well combined.
Double check that your chicken wings are as dry as possible (this helps them from getting soggy when cooking).
Then, add them into the large resealable plastic bag with the flour and seasonings.
Zip it up and shake it all together until the chicken wings are well coated with the flour and seasoning mixture.
Now, in a small bowl, whisk together the melted butter and hot sauce until they are well combined.
Then, dip the wings into the butter mixture and place them right into the bottom of the air fryer basket.
Once the air fyer basket bottom is full, close the air fryer and set it to 400 degrees and the timer to 12 minutes.
After 12 minutes is up, open up the air fryer and use a tong to flip the wings over.
Set the air fryer again to 400 degrees and for another 12 minutes.
During the last few minutes open up the air fryer to check on the wings to make sure they aren’t burning.
Then, once they are done, carefully take them out and serve them with your favorite dipping sauce!
