How to Make the Sauce Stick the Wings

To get the sauce to stick, you will need to drizzle it over the chicken wings once they have pretty much fully baked. Then return the wings to the oven to soak in all of the sauce.

How to Keep the Wings Crispy

Breading the wings with flour and properly applying oil will help the wings crisp. If you see visible areas of flour on the wings after air frying or baking, spray more oil and allow them to cook a little longer.

Made these for dinner tonight after a proper ass whooping from Jess Sims and it took everything in me not to eat all of them in one sitting! These were definitely the best wings I have ever made and I can’t wait to try more of your chicken wing recipes

Love the flavor profile, and appreciate Brandi's honest take on heat level. And, I've said it before, but her ratios are always on point too, which is super helpful

These wings were amazing! They were so full of flavor. My only regret is not doubling the recipe. Oh well, lesson learned and I'll be doubling it the next time I make them!

Made these last night and BABBBBBBYYYYY!!!! You did a thing on this recipe! These were amazing! I added a lil Chinese 5 spice seasoning to the flour for the razzle dazzle. But these are perfection!

Made these wings tonight and they were a winner - thank you, Brandi! We'll definitely be making these again. I did make a couple small changes to make things work in our air-fryer. After rinsing and drying the wings I applied a light coating of olive oil spray before applying Montreal Chicken seasoning. The light coat of spray oil helped adhere the seasoning to the wings and allowed me to see exactly how much spice I was applying. In order to cut down on the carbs, I elected to use a very light coating of Protein Powder as the "breading" rather than flour. I also chose to lightly sprinkle each piece with the powder rather than "dredge" them to ensure I kept the ratio of seasoning and "breading" I wanted. I then applied another light coating of olive oil spray to hold everything in place before placing the wings in the air-fryer. When doing wings in our particular air-fryer, I've found that 360 degrees for about 23 minutes works best, then rotating the wings and adding them back into the oven for about 7 minutes more at 400 degrees. In this recipe I brushed the wings with the prepared sauce before adding them back into the air-fryer for the final 7 minutes and they turned out great!
