Air Fryer Chicken
This very easy Nuwave Air Fryer Chicken Wings recipe will show you how to make some delicious crispy chicken wings in your air fryer. Why not combine the wings with some delicious spicy Buffalo sauce to make some super Buffalo hot wings?
Nuwave Air Fryer
Last year we acquired a Nuwave Air Fryer (Brio, 3 litres), 1450W. After years of using a deep fryer for our frozen food, we decided it was probably wise to cut down a bit on the fat-heavy foods, so using an air fryer seemed the logical choice. So this is one of my first Nuwave air fryer recipes!
I will be adding some more Nuwave Brio air fryer recipes as time progresses, so keep a look out! I also have a recipe for meatballs in the air fryer which may be of interest. Also good as a game day treat!
We love this machine. It is very simple to use and does a great job. We have found it is especially handy with frozen food like onion rings, fish sticks, french fries or chicken fingers for getting nice crispy results.
But also for chicken wings, it does the business. Here I used some pre-marinated chicken wings from Aldi which were delicious. They were not frozen when I cooked them, but if you do happen to use frozen wings, then thaw them properly first.
The only thing you have to remember is to shake the basket regularly so that the hot air reaches all the surfaces and to make sure that the wings get evenly cooked.
Chicken Wings in Air Fryer Oven
We have found the Nuwave Air Fryer fairly easy to clean, so using the air fryer is actually easier than cooking the wings in the conventional oven, as you have no problems with the wings sticking to the sheet pan.
The air fryer is easy to program as you can just select the relevant program from a choice of pre-programmed options, or just program it manually. We have found the 3QT size to be a bit on the small size, but Nuwave also have 6, 10 and 14 Quart sizes as well, so you can choose one to suit your family if you are in the market for one.
You also use a lot less electrical energy by not turning your conventional oven on. And on top of all these advantages, you also get a super crispy finish.
So if you do not yet have an air fryer in your kitchen it might be time to get one. They are well worth it.
Turn your crispy chicken wings into Buffalo Wings
I prefer a good old New York State Buffalo sauce, either as a dip or as a coating. The wonderful taste of the Frank’s Redhot Original Cayenne Pepper sauce is just a complete classic. Follow the link to my recipe for a fantastic Buffalo dipping sauce.
This must be the best game-day snack ever invented. It certainly beats our English mini-sausages-on-a-stick hands down 😃 !
I hope you get to try this simple recipe for air fryer wings. Of course, you can use any make of air fryer. Just make sure the temperatures are the same and don’t mix up your Fahrenheits and your Centigrades!
I hope you try to make some delicious Nuwave air fryer chicken wings and make some of my Buffalo sauce to go with them!
Enjoy them! We did!!
