Chicken Wings:

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

Buffalo Chicken Wing Sauce:

Optional Serving Ideas:


To Cook the Chicken Wings:

  • Preheat the air fryer to 400F.
  • Toss the chicken wings and oil together in a large bowl to coat the wings.
  • Arrange the wings in a single layer in the preheated air fryer. Cook 10 minutes on the first side, flip, and then cook 10 minutes on the second side. The wings should be golden on both sides when they’re done.

To Make the Buffalo Chicken Wing Sauce:

  • Stir together the butter and hot sauce in a bowl.

To Coat the Chicken Wings:

  • Add the cooked wings and the sauce to a large bowl, and gently toss to coat.

To Serve:

  • If you like your wings extra crispy, let them cook a little bit longer (about 2 minutes extra per side, flipping once).
  • Serve the wings warm along with blue cheese dressing and celery sticks.
