Ingredients

Instructions

  • Dry the chicken completely with paper towels.
  • Place the chicken wings in a large bowl or in a sealable plastic bag.
  • Season the chicken with chicken seasoning, salt, and pepper to taste. Next, sprinkle the baking powder throughout and ensure each piece is evenly coated.
  • I like to use air fryer parchment paper to line the air fryer basket. Place the chicken wings on the parchment paper. Spray the top of the chicken with cooking oil.
  • Air fry for 15 minutes on 320 degrees.
  • Open the air fryer and flip the chicken. Spray this side of the chicken with cooking oil. 
  • Cook for an additional 8-10 minutes at 400 degrees or until the chicken has reached your desired level of crisp. Test the inside of the chicken with a meat thermometer. Ensure the chicken has an internal temperature of 165 degrees. Use a meat thermometer
  • Cool before serving.

Notes

Baking powder is used in this recipe to make it keto and low-carb. You can use all-purpose flour if you do not require a low carb version. I find baking powder works its way into the chicken much easier and does not leave white spots.
Reheat the wings in the air fryer for 4-5 minutes on 400 degrees for leftovers.
Each air fryer brand cooks differently. Monitor your chicken and check in on them frequently to gauge your appropriate cook time.
