Garlic Parmesan Chicken Wings in an Air Fryer


We are teaming up with Avolon Bay AirFyer to bring you the BEST Garlic Parmesan Chicken WIngs!  Let’s talk about this new “it” kitchen appliance, Air Fryers. I had to admit when I first got my air fryer, I was a little skeptical. It sounded like a lot of work, and fried food was not exactly something I wanted to make very often while trying to stay healthy. After a little more research I realized just how easy air frying can be, and how little fat was actually involved. No oil, no butter, just the food, I decided that I needed to give fried chicken a try! You can find the air fryer I have HERE.

I tossed these wings in some garlic, parmesan cheese, parsley, and salt and pepper, threw them in my air fryer for 18 minutes, and they came out perfectly crispy and ready for the game! Needless to say I jumped from semi-cool wife to best wife on the planet in exactly 18 minutes. We served them with some buffalo sauce, ranch, and of course celery.

Air Fryer Tips

  • I suggest spraying all insert with cooking spray before you put the chicken in! It makes things SO much easier when cleaning
  • Be sure to watch your chicken. It isn’t going to hurt your chicken to open it up and check! So the check the last few minutes to make sure it isn’t going to burn!
  • You can cook all kinds of chicken with this recipe! Try the drumsticks, and chicken breasts!

    • Hi Gary, I talked to the sisters and this post has be redone, so these pictures are large wings. In the video it says if you use drumsticks you can fit about 10 in this particular model. We have made this recipe with drumsticks, chicken wings, chicken breasts, and smaller pieces of chicken. The sisters all have different models and sizes of air fryers. Your model and size could vary from ours. So the amount that you can fit into your air fryer will vary depending on size of fryer and what chicken pieces you use. Hope this helps. You can watch the You Tube video that has been embedded in the post and that should answer more questions.
  1. So, in the text,you say you cooked them for 18 minutes. In the statistics for the recipe, you say the cook time is 20 minutes. In the prep instructions, you say to cook for 12 minutes, then turn (which really shouldn’t be necessary in an air fryer) and cook an additional 12 minutes. So cook times stated range from 18 to 24 minutesaa—a deviation of 33+%
