  • 1 1/2 pounds party style chicken wings can also use whole chicken wings that have been halved crosswise
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 cup hot sauce such as Frank's Red Hot Sauce
  • 4 tablespoons butter melted
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • celery sticks and ranch or blue cheese dressing for serving.


  • Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees F.
  • Place the chicken wings in a bowl. Add the salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder, then toss to coat.
  • Place the wings in a single layer in the air fryer basket or tray. You may need to work in batches if they don't all fit at once.
  • Bake for 20-22 minutes, flipping the wings halfway through the cooking time, until the wings are deep golden brown and crispy.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the hot sauce, butter and honey. 
  • Remove the wings from the air fryer. Pour the sauce over the wings and toss to coat evenly.
  • Serve immediately with celery sticks and ranch or blue cheese dressing.
