Pat the chicken wings dry with a paper towel. Make sure to get as much moisture off the skin as possible.

Prep Wings


In a small bowl, mix coarse salt with baking powder. Place your dried chicken wings in a bowl large enough to hold them and sprinkle them with the salt mixture. Toss them to ensure they are evenly coated, and then place them on a rack set over a sheet pan. Refrigerate, uncovered, for at least an hour and up to a day ahead.

Coat Wings


In a small bowl, mix cornstarch, garlic powder, smoked paprika, onion powder, and black pepper. Take the chicken wings out of the fridge, and pat them dry with a paper towel again. Place the wings in a bowl large enough to hold them, sprinkle them with the spices and toss them until they are thoroughly covered.

Season Wings


Grease your air fryer basket with a little cooking spray or cooking oil. Preheat it to 300°F. Depending on the size of your air fryer and the number of wings you’re making, you’ll probably need to cook your wings in batches. Place the wings in a single layer in the basket of the air fryer, making sure they are not touching. Cook for 15 minutes.

Prep Air Fryer


Use tongs to turn your wings over in the basket. Raise the temperature to 450°F. Cook for 10 minutes. Use a meat thermometer to make sure the wings have an internal temperature of 165°F. Serve them up immediately with some of your favorite sauces while the next batch cooks!
