Air fryer chicken wings are not your traditional deep-fried chicken wings. They are healthier, crispy and use much less oil. Enjoy with a thick BBQ sauce.



  • 2.5ml (½ tsp) garlic powder
  • 1.25ml (¼ tsp) salt
  • 0.6ml (⅛ tsp) pepper
  • 60ml (4 tbsp) cornflour
  • 8 chicken wings
  • 15ml (1 tbsp) oil


  1. Mix the garlic, salt, pepper and cornflour in a large bowl.
  2. Place the chicken wings in the bowl and mix with the dry ingredients until all the chicken’s surfaces are covered.
  3. Place the chicken in the air fryer and cook for around 40 minutes or until cooked through and the skin is crispy.
  4. Serve immediately as a starter with mayo, ketchup or barbecue sauce.


  • Ensure the chicken is completely dry before mixing with the dry ingredients.
  • The chicken wings can be served as a main course as well, 4 wings per adult.
  • For best results, brine the chicken wings first.
