Have roasted chicken wings the easy way with this super simple air fryer chicken wings recipe. You’ll need just four ingredients and less than 30 minutes to prepare them. Pair these with my cauliflower risotto, creamed spinach, air fryer green beans, or air fryer radishes for a low-carb everyday meal. You can also add this to your appetizer and tailgating menu with dips and chopped veggies.
Why Make This
- 4 ingredients: like my boneless air fryer chicken thighs, air fryer fryer roasted chicken drumsticks, and roasted whole chicken, this recipe requires just four ingredients. You can get all of them from the store, making it perfect for someone looking for a no-fuss, simple recipe.
- Quick & easy: these come together in less than 30 minutes, including prep. For busy people, like me, this allows me to have the roasted chicken flavor without having to wait an hour to bake chicken wings in the oven.
- Great for meal prep: Make a batch of these and store them in the refrigerator for multiple meals.
- Chicken Wings: In this recipe, I’m using fresh, raw chicken wings. You could also use previously frozen chicken wings that have been thawed out.
- Avocado Oil: This helps the spices stick to the chicken wings and assists with browning the wing skin.
- Salt-free Herb Spice: This is a spice blend of more than 24 spices like garlic powder, rosemary, thyme, lemon peel, and sage. I love using it because it packs a lot of flavor in one easy package. You can use it on whole chicken, air fryer boneless chicken thighs, roasted chicken legs in the air fryer, keto stuffing, and more.
- Sea salt: I’m using fine sea salt because it allows the salt to spread through the chicken evenly.
How to Roast Chicken Wings in an Air Fryer

Top Cooking Tips & FAQs
- Flip the chicken halfway through for even browning
- Salt to taste: I’m using 1/2 tsp of sea salt per pound. Feel free to lower the salt or omit it.
- Give the chicken room: like flipping the meat halfway through, making sure that the chicken wings have space in the air fryer cooking basket helps them to cook and brown evenly.
How long does it take to cook wings in an air fryer?
The cook time depends on the size of your wings as well as how browned you’d like your chicken. But, generally, they are ready in 24-30 minutes when you cook them at 400 degrees.
Is it better to bake or air fryer wings?
I prefer to air fryer wings because it takes half the time as baking chicken wings. They require about the same oil to get a tender crispy result.
