Crispy Air Fryer Buffalo Wings.

  • Spread the chicken wings out onto a flat surface like a cutting board, and gently pat them dry to remove excess moisture.
  • With tongs, place the wings into the air fryer basket skin-side up. Space them out as much as you can. If some are touching a bit, that's okay.
  • Place the airfryer basket into the air fryer and cook the wings in the following time increments:
  • 375º F for 10 minutes; open the air fryer, then carefully flip the wings.
  • Cook them for another 10 minutes; open the air fryer and flip the wings.
  • Cook the wings for 5 minutes this time. Finally, open the air fryer once more, and flip the wings. Cook for another 5 minutes.
  • Transfer the wings to a large mixing bowl.
  • Pour the wing sauce over the wings and toss them around with tongs to evenly coat them.
  • Serve with your favorite blue cheese dip, and carrots and celery!

Buffalo wing sauce.

  • Heat the hot sauce in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the butter and stir it in as it melts. Give the sauce a taste. If it's too spicy, add a bit more butter. The more butter you add, the less heat you'll end up with.
  • Once the heat level is to your liking, stir in the white vinegar.
  • Bring the heat to low, and leave the sauce on a low simmer stirring occasionally while the wings cook in the air fryer. When the wings are done, remove the saucepan from the heat.
