  • 1 lb chicken wings

Asian Inspired Marinade

  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp powdered mustard

Mexican Inspired Marinade

  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 3/4 cup chicken stock
  • 1/2 T tomato paste
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp powdered mustard


  • Select your marinade and add all ingredients to a large bowl.
  • Mix until well blended and toss with one pound chicken wings. Refrigerate for one hour.
  • Line the Air Fryer basket with aluminum foil, flattening to sides of basket as completely as possible.
  • Pour off the marinade and discard. Place the chicken wings in the Air Fryer and cook on medium-high for 8 minutes (alternatively use the Chicken setting if your Air Fryer has it). Open the Air Fryer and check doneness.
  • Stir up the chicken wings and flip; cook again on medium-high (or Chicken setting) for 8 minutes. Adjust temperature to keep from burning.
  • Note: different results may be achieved in different Air Fryers. Add time if necessary based on your device, but the first time you make this recipe you should try 8 minutes and go from there.
