  • 2 lbs whole chicken wings fresh, not frozen
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp rotisserie chicken seasoning or your favorite dry rub seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp butter melted


  1. Brush the inside of your air fryer basket lightly with vegetable oil and preheat the air fryer to 250 degrees.

  2. In a large zippered back, combine the baking powder, chicken seasoning and salt. Add the fresh wings and shake to coat.

  3. Depending on the size of your air fryer you'll probably have to cook the wings in two separate batches. 

  4. For each batch, add one layer of chicken wings to the basket making sure they aren't touching each other (or barely touching). 

  5. Cook at 250 degrees for 15 minutes. Flip the wings over and increase the temperature to 400 degrees. 

  6. Cook the wings at 400 degrees for an additional 15 minutes.

  7. Check the temperature of the wings. Mine were over 200 degrees F when finished. Skin will be lightly browned and crispy.

  8. Whisk together the soy sauce, honey and melted butter. Toss the cooked wings in the sauce and serve.
