These Crispy Air Fryer Chicken Wings were cooked in my Power Air Fryer Oven. It's a great way to cook fried chicken wings without the extra grease or calories!
I was given a complimentary Power Air Fryer Oven to review but as usual all opinions are my own. I was not obligated to write about this air fryer but chose to because it's a great appliance and makes fabulous fried chicken wings!
This lucky Jersey Girl has another appliance to test in my kitchen. I am loving it and one of the main reasons is that my husband and teenage son love it too. They have been making batches and batches of this air fry chicken wings recipe.

Why use a Power Air fryer Oven?
There are many reasons to like the Power Air Fryer Oven. The oven is versatile, simple and many recipes can be prepared quicker than with a traditional cooking method. It works as an air fryer, rotisserie oven and dehydrator. I have not used it as a dehydrator yet but plan to try that soon. The simple design and pre-set cooking functions are perfect to have my teenager do some cooking. This appliance fits perfectly on my countertop even though I was concerned about space before I received it.
How to Cook Air Fryer Chicken Wings
Sunday is for football and food at our house. Since the Power Air Fryer Oven arrived, my son has taken the initiative to make his own wings. He cooks the chicken wings while I make the finishing sauce. The wings are coated with seasoned salt and flour before they are cooked. My son places them in the oven and most of the work is completed.
Air Fryer Chicken wings cook time
These chicken wings are cooked in 30 minutes and come out super crispy! If you want, you can rotate the racks halfway through cooking but it is not necessary if you put both racks as far in the middle slots of the oven as you can.
What type of sauce is used on these crispy chicken wings?
Once the chicken wings are fully cooked in the Power XL Air Fryer oven, they are tossed in a combination of melted butter, hot sauce and maple syrup. It's the sweet and spicy combination that we love. Our favorite sauce is this one, however, the wings can be tossed in whatever sauce you like. I also serve the Crispy Air Fryer Chicken Wings with blue cheese dressing. This is a perfect recipe on any game day.
In fact, my family loves chicken wings so much, that I created a Buffalo Chicken Flatbread with Bacon that is like Buffalo wings on a pizza. Mmmmm, so good!
What else can you cook in the Power Air Fryer Oven?
I plan to use the Power Air Fryer Oven to make more chicken wings but also many other recipes. I think I might need to try my Baked Buffalo Cauliflower in my air fryer next. I have made many vegetables like asparagus and eggplant in this air fryer instead of using my oven. They are super healthy and GOOD! Feel free to give me some suggestions. What is your favorite way to use an air fryer?
