Air Fryer Buffalo Wings w/ Homemade Blue Cheese Dressing

If you checked out my Parmesan Garlic wings recipe in the past, then you know that making crispy chicken wings is easy & quick to do in an air fryer. Since I’m experimenting with my GoWise USA 5.8-Quarts XL Electric Air Fryer I decided to make this variation. I include an easy to make Blue Cheese Dressing because I personally enjoy this combo and love to make my salad dressings at home. This recipe makes about 14 wings and 1 cup of blue cheese dressing.

 
 

Ingredients

Chicken Wings

Note about salting: I reduced the amount of salt in this recipe (compared to the Air Fryer Garlic Parmesan Wings) because I find that Buffalo Wing sauce is already pretty salty. If you want more salt, feel free to add another 1/4 tsp of salt to the wings after they are done cooking. Remember, you can always add salt, but you can’t take it away once a dish is over salted.

Note: This makes almost 1 cup of dressing. You can store it in the refrigerator to be used over the next few days on salads or more wings!

Directions

  1. Remove the chicken wing parts from the refrigerator and pat dry (removing as much moisture as possible helps to have a crispy wing skin)

  2. Mix the sea salt, black pepper, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder and baking powder in a small dish or ramekin

  3. Sprinkle seasoning mixture on the wings and toss to coat

  4. Place wings on a flat layer in the airfryer

  5. Use the air-fryer programmed settings for chicken (400 degrees) and cook for 25-30 minutes. I set my timer 15 minutes, flipped the wings, then checked the wings at 5 minute intervals until the skin was crispy enough for me. Getting the wings crispy quickly requires you to flip them about halfway through.

  6. Mix all of the ingredients for the Buffalo Wing sauce by stirring them in a small bowl with a fork (keep mixing until the melted butter is well incorporated)

  7. Mix all of the ingredients for the blue cheese dressing by stirring them in a small bowl with a lid (this made enough dressing to dip the wings, have on my dinner salad, but also another day of salads for lunch)

  8. Toss the wings in the Buffalo Sauce mixture and serve immediately with a side of Blue Cheese Dressing
