Let’s look at how to make them.

Ingredients

  • Chicken wings 
  • Butter 
  • Buffalo wing sauce

Instructions

Preheat the air fryer to 250 degrees for 3 minutes.

Place water in the bottom of the air fryer to ensure minimum smoke from fat drippings.

Place half of the chicken wings in the air fryer basked lightly greased with preferred cooking oil. Flip the wings, then cook for an additional 6 minutes.

While the wings are cooking, combine butter and wing sauce in a large bowl.

Increase the temperature of the air fryer to 400 degrees. Flip the wings and cook for 5 minutes. Flip once more and cook an additional 5 minutes.
