  • 1 pound chicken wings split into flats and drums
  • cup hot sauce
  • ½ tablespoon fresh garlic minced


  • Dry chicken wings thoroughly with paper towels.
  • Add in single layer in air fryer basket or shelf.
  • Cook at 400°F for 22 minutes, or until internal temperature reaches 165°F.
  • While chicken is cooking, finely mince garlic, or push through a garlic press.
  • Add cooked chicken to a mixing bowl. Add hot sauce and fresh garlic and toss.



Make sure chicken wings are completely thawed before cooking.
I like to use Frank's Hot Sauce, but you can use any hot sauce you like.
Serve wings with blue cheese or ranch dressing and celery sticks.
