Appetizer, Lunch or dinner, Snack
Whole wings or 24 pre-cut wing pieces
Olive oil, approx.
Grated Parmesan cheese
Prepare a brine of 2 quarts cold water with 2 Tablespoons kosher salt and 1 Tablespoon sugar
Cut the fresh wings, if needed, into 3 pieces, discarding the tips
Drop the wings in the brine and let soak 2-4 hours
Pull the wings from the brine and to a rack to dry while you prep
In a large paper bag add ¼ cup flour, 2 Tablespoons baking powder, 1 teaspoon each of salt, pepper and granulated garlic. Mix well.
Put wings in a bowl and drizzle lightly with olive oil, toss or stir until coated
Drop half the wing pieces into the paper bag, hold top closed and shake to coat
Place the wings on a rack and flour the next half
Spread the wings on air fryer racks even spaced without touching
Put in 390 degree air fryer for 10 minutes
Rotate the racks and turn the chicken wings
Cook for another 10 minutes at 390. If desired increase temp to 400 for the last 3 minutes to crisp up slightly
In a microwave safe bowl add 4 Tablespoons butter and 4 Tablespoons hot sauce
Microwave 30-60 seconds then whisk smooth
Melt 4 Tablespoons butter in a glass measuring cup with 1 teaspoon granulated garlic, set aside
Pull wings from air fryer
Toss half the wings in the Buffalo sauce
Put the other half of the wings in a bowl
Drizzle wings with melted butter and toss
Add 2 Tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese and 2 teaspoons dried basil and toss
Serve and enjoy with your favorite sides and sauces
Pro Tip: Paper bags will leak slightly at the bottom, the top too if you don’t get a good fold. Hold over your sink or counter while shaking to contain the possible mess.
