The Secret to the Best Air Fryer Chicken Wings

While my mom was teaching me to make her signature Air Fryer chicken wings, she also taught me her little secrets (there are two).

DIY Headbands

First, she completely covers the inside of her Air Fryer basket with regular tin foil. It keeps the sauce from going through the holes at the bottom of the basket and completely fouling up your Air Fryer.

Tips and Tricks for Successful DIY Tie Dye

Besides the foil, there’s actually a second tip- She uses the Colman’s Dry and swears that you can’t taste it very much BUT it brings out the other flavors in the recipe.

Step 1


Asian Inspired Marinade:

chicken wings

sesame oil low sodium soy sauce brown sugar powdered mustard

Mexican Inspired Marinade:

olive oil chicken stock tomato paste cumin chili powder powdered mustard

Select your marinade and add all ingredients to a large bowl.


2. Knotted DIY Tie Headbands

Mix until well blended and toss with one pound chicken wings. Refrigerate for one hour.

3. Twisted DIY Headband

Line the Air Fryer basket with aluminum foil, flattening to sides of basket as completely as possible.
