Chicken Wings is a classic American favorite, unfortunately store bought wings are usually un-healthy, greasy due to being cooked in a deep fryer but today at Uber Appliance we help you get your snack on the healthy way with the Oil Free Uber Appliance Air Fryer (get yours here if you don't have one: Uber Appliance Air Fryers)
Today's Chicken Wing Recipe is Keto Friendly, requires no oil or added grease. Chicken is a great source of protein for Adults and children a like, this recipe allows you to get your protein intake in a delicious format, lets get to it!
Here is what you need:
- 1/2 lbs of chicken wings
- salt and pepper (as much or as little as you like)
- 1 tsp olive oil
- Optional: Paprika, lemon-pepper dry rub or any other bbq dry rub your heart desires
1- Season your wings and Pre-heat your Air Fryer
We start off this recipe by seasoning our thawed wings, allowing them to marinate then pre-heating our air fryer to make sure its nice and hot ready to air fry our delicious crispy wings.
Take your thawed chicken wings and coat them with olive oil. The olive oil will help the seasoning and spices to stick to the wings and be absorbed by the meat as it marinates. We season our wings with a little bit of salt and fresh ground pepper, you can add any dry rub spices such as cajun, lemon pepper, or any spices like paprika or crushed peppers as well. Really the seasoning portion is up to your taste and what you would like to flavor your wings with.
Once you have seasoned your wings, set them aside and let them marinate while you pre-heat your air fryer. We like to preheat our air fryer by setting the temperature to 400F deg and allowing it to run empty for about 5 minutes.
2- Air Fry your chicken wings
The next step is to air fry your chicken wings, remove the pre-heated air fryer basket and make sure the crisper tray is at the bottom of the basket. The crisper tray will allow the air to flow uniformly around the chicken wings to achieve maximum crispiness and it also works as a grease separator allowing any grease that drips from the wings to settle at the bottom and not mixed in your crispy wings. If you dont use the crisper tray your wings may not be as crispy as you want them and may have additional grease, we are not big fans of that so we use the crisper tray always.
Place your chicken wings in your air fryer basket, we recommend using tongs to do this to prevent burning your hands or fingers on the pre-heated air fryer basket. Make sure to leave roughly 3/8 to 1/2 in space between your chicken wings to allow air to flow around each wing and to allow even cooking and maximum crispiness.
Set your air fryer to 350F deg for 30min, at the 10 minute mark we recommend removing your air fryer basket and flipping your wings to the opposite side to make sure they evenly cook. at the 20 minute mark you can repeat the flipping exercise again to make sure everything is evenly cooked. at the 25minute mark your wings should be pretty crispy, if you would like to add a brushing of your favorite wing sauce now would be the time to do it. When you place your wings back in with the wing sauce, the wing sauce will lightly bake on to your crispy wings. If you prefer to keep the sauce till the end and have extra crispy wings, then let the wings cook the full 30 minutes before adding any sauce.
3- Sauce it up or not and enjoy!
Once your wings have cooked fully and you hear the air fryer chime off indicating the cooking time has been reached, carefully remove your crispy chicken wings from the air fryer using tongs to prevent burns.
At this point you can enjoy your no breading air fryer chicken wings as is with just the dry seasoning or you can sauce it up with your favorite wing sauce and serve. If you want to add sauce, we advise you take your wings and place them in a sauce pan, add a little bit of your favorite wing sauce and give it a nice toss to evenly coat all the wings. Once your wings have been coated, place on a serving dish, allow a few minutes for it to cool down before enjoying.
We like ours with just the dry rub, here's the final product:
