  • Season the chicken wings with the chicken seasoning, salt, and pepper to taste. I like to do this inside ziploc bags to ensure the chicken is evenly coated.
  • Coat the chicken in flour. I do this inside the plastic bag.
  • Spray the air fryer basket with cooking oil. I like to use olive oil.
  • Add the chicken to the basket. Spray both sides with cooking oil. The floury exterior on the chicken should go away when you spray it with oil.
  • Cook for 8 minutes on 400 degrees. Do not overcrowd the air fryer basket. Cook in batches if needed.
  • Open the air fryer and flip the chicken. Cook for an additional 7 minutes.
  • Mix the honey and bbq sauce together in a bowl or mixing cup.
  • Remove the chicken and place it in a large bowl. Drizzle the honey bbq sauce throughout.
  • Place the chicken back in the air fryer. Cook for an additional 5 minutes on 400 degrees. Every air fryer brand is different and cook time will vary. Use your judgment. Cook until the honey bbq sauce has dried and crisped.
