How to Make Air Fryer Chicken Wings Crispy

  • Cheese helps create a great crust. But what type of grated parmesan cheese? We like to use a good quality grated parmesan cheese. This sticks better to the wings than coarsely grated from a block. Be careful about other grated cheeses as they might be fake cheese.
  • A light spray of oil is needed after you coated the wings with the cheese. This helps the cheese from burning before the wings are cooked through.
  • Low carb dips? There’s lots of great sugar free bbq sauces that are keto friendly. Check our more air fryer chicken wings recipe details in the recipe box below.

For 3-4 qt. Air Fryers, 2 lbs. is about the max without overcrowding the air fryer. If you have a larger size of air fryer, you can probably cook larger batches. Adjust cooking time for thicker or thinner chicken wings. Some brands of Air Fryers will cook slower or faster than others so check on them often to make sure they’re to your preference.
