Don't forget to use baking powder (NOT baking soda) to get extra crispy wings. Mix it in the rub and let them stand for a while (or a whole night in the fridge). Air fry them as usual.

I have the standalone Ninja air fryer. I do my wings on it's maximum temp, which I think is 385. 12 to 14 minutes depending on the size of the wings. You don't need to flip halfway through, but it helps avoid sticking together

Keep the breading simple, in an air fryer you don't need more than a basic flour coating, seasoned with salt, pepper, cayenne and garlic powder

Basic buffalo sauce is easy too, 2:1 ratio of Frank's to butter

My asian wings are a little different, bread with brown sugar, garlic powder, ginger powder, sauce with hoisin, rice vinegar, sriracha and a tiny splash of sesame oil, but I usually do those in a slow cooker, then broil when it's time to sauce

Buffalo is good, but if you enjoy Frank's, 4:1 Frank's/honey is quite delightful also, foot a change

Yeah that "recipe" pretty much how I do them in my air fryer.  If you have tongs with the silicone tips those work good for flipping them.  I usually use franks red hot hot buffalo sauce so I don't have to mess with melting butter, and after I sauce them I throw them in the oven at like 350 for a couple minutes so the sauce bakes in a bit.  Quick and easy.

I like panko crusts in the air fryer.

Dredge target food in cornstarch (laced with spices), then egg, then panko. Spray with a little cooking spray, just to keep from sticking Air fry at 390 for 8-14 minutes depending on what you're cooking. Shrimp are 8. Chicken nuggets 10. Chicken pieces 14.

Remove, and serve with dipping sauce. I like what my wife calls super ranch- start with a cup of sour cream, and stir in a packet of ranch. It's basically double strength- the packet says 16 ounces of sour cream. Also good is BBQ sauce, hot sauce, or toum- Lebanese garlic sauce.

I've used this recipe and it turns out some fine, crispy wings.  No breading or anything else required as the natural oils in the wings do all the work.

So many sauce options...  just go with what you like most.  There's plenty of good stuff you can get at the store and even more you can throw together quickly on the stove top.  I like to make a Korean BBQ Sauce myself.

Enjoy your new air fryer and waist line!

Old Bay wings are the bomb.
 
2022-01-28 12:55:40 PM  
Mae Ploy, Sriracha, Honey, Powdered Ginger (or fresh if you got it) you'll have to find a balance of the ingredients you like I do 1:1:1 and ginger to taste. My current favorite sauce (also great on Salmon)

I don't have a recipe because I've never actually made wings at home for whatever reason but I will punch a baby for some Teriyaki wings. You can make your own sauce if you have the ingredients but if not, it's just cheaper and easier to just buy a bottle of Teriyaki sauce.
 
2022-01-28 1:37:12 PM  
I made a batch of wings and experimented with some gojuchang. Added some of that along with some apricot preserves and a bit of rice vinegar and the wings were some of my best yet. Gonna make some pork belly burnt ends and use this sauce.

1) Don't over fill the basket. You need to make sure you have space for air flow and as much skin on each wing exposed as possible. Batches don't take long so better safe than sorry.

2) Use parchment paper with holes cut out as a lining for easier cleanup. Amazon sells pre cut but I would highly recommend silicone inserts. You can buy them for about $10 and so worth it.

3) Buffalo sauce

1 cup Frank's Hot Sauce.
1/2 cup butter.
2 Tablespoons white vinegar.
1/2 tablespoon worchestershire sauce.
1/2 teaspoon cayenne.
1/2 teaspoon garlic.

Just melt butter, add, simmer until mixed. Way better than just Frank's and easy.

4) I've been making a lot of dishes lately with Gochujang. Its a thick Asian pepper paste/hot sauce. Mix paste, soy sauce, and oil with your choice of spices and herbs. You can coat wings first before fry and reserve some for sauce. Its super cheap and fun to play with.

Yeah, but you have to find a good teriyaki. Just grabbing a bottle off the Asian section shelf is hit or miss.

Frank's Red Hot also makes a honey garlic sauce which is decent. Soy Vey Very Very Teriyaki isn't bad. You can also get a bottle of hoisen and mix it with honey and sriracha and it will come out as a decent teriyaki.

I am a crispy wing snob.  Sauce is whatever, but I cannot stand soggy wings, the skin needs to be crispy AF.

I always get great results doing 12 minutes per side at 380, then a good shake and 3-5 minutes at 400.

Last time we made wings my kid mixed BBQ sauce (Stubb's mesquite) and teriyaki and it was surprisingly delicious.
 
2022-01-28 1:58:19 PM  
not a wingmaker here, but anyone using gochujang might also consider ssamjang? it's basically a mix of gochujang and doenjang (miso++)
 
2022-01-28 2:01:42 PM  
Put them in a big ziplock overnight with Buttermilk, rosemary. a salt (more or less if you're not using it for the final breading), lemon zest. Let them drip dry well....
Then Tomorrow "Shake and Bake" in a paper bag with flour and seasoning salt. Some crushed up corn flakes (no sugar) if you have'm. Then bake.....get a little spray bottle of oil and water to give'm a spritz midway so the coating bakes well.

Don't be a pansy. Into the oil it goes!

Axeofjudgement: Don't be a pansy. Into the oil it goes!


I'm still a proponent of deep frying and think it gives a better result, but dealing with the oil can be a pain in the ass.  So air frying or convection is a solid second option.
 
2022-01-28 2:47:39 PM  
For really crispy wings, I like to steam them for 10 minutes, then let them rest, uncovered, in the fridge for about 30 minutes.  that'll dry the skin out nicely.

Last weekend, my husband dehydrated a prime rib roast in the Ninja for a few hours and then seared it into the most luscious cut of beef I've had in years. The horseradish / bleu cheese sauce wasn't bad, either.

I should clarify - he cut it thin on the meat slicer and served it with the sauce on ciabatta rolls.

Does your air fryer have a dehydrator function? You can use that to dry the skin on the wings out before you air fry them so they turn out super crispy without any baking powder or cornstarch. Just salt and pepper.

Wing sauce? I make a buffalo style sauce but I use sambal olek instead of Frank's.

Derp Du Jour: 1 cup Frank's Hot Sauce.
1/2 cup butter.
2 Tablespoons white vinegar.
1/2 tablespoon worchestershire sauce.
1/2 teaspoon cayenne.
1/2 teaspoon garlic.

Just melt butter, add, simmer until mixed. Way better than just Frank's and easy.


Pretty close to mine, I just keep the ratio of 5 parts hot sauce, 3 parts butter, 1/2 part vinegar and then season with whatever spices I prefer that day.

I found this to be pretty much the right mix;  to me, habanero based sauces have the right mix of hot flavor without just destroying my enjoyment of the food itself; This is also a pretty great deal for the amount of sauce you're getting.

If i'm not in the mood for heat, i just love salt & vinegar dry rub.  I bought this brand as it is substantially cheaper than B-dubs, and tastes just the same. with wings that are cooked to where the skin is kind of crispy? LOVE it.

Havent done wings yet in mine, but thighs with a dry bbq rub skin down, for 20 min, flip with 6 minutes left came out yummy, very good. Spray with a bit of oil first.

Fried mushrooms came out well, get little baby bellas, egg wash, dredge in some flour mixed with old bay, spray lightly with olive oil, 10 minutes at 380, shake, 3 minutes more. Id like more crispiness but they were good.

Fish filets did well, swai fish cut up,  egg wash, old bay and flour dredge, oil spray, 380 for 12 minutes, flip, 3 minutes more.

2 hash brown patties, 380 for 8 minutes, flip, add a ramekin with 2 eggs and a little crumbled bacon,, 6 minutes more.

For all recipes preheat fryer for 5-10 minutes...

Would be helpful to know what brand of air fryer posters are using.  Results may depend on it.

Try boiling them for about seven minutes before you pop them in the oven.

I use an air fryer.  Basically zero work/mess and they come out perfectly.  Heating up the oven is a whole thing.
