  • 2 pounds chicken wings
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder

  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano

  • Preheat air fryer at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 5 minutes.
  • Pat chicken wings dry and place in a large mixing bowl.
  • Combine all kosher salt, paprika, onion powder, brown sugar, dried oregano, chili pepper and ground pepper in a small bowl. Sprinkle over the chicken wings and toss until wings are evenly coated.
  • Place the chicken wings in the air fryer basket in a single layer, making sure there is space in between for hot air to circulate.
  • Cook for 15 to 18 minutes, until crispy and golden.
  • Cook in batches as needed.
  • Serve immediately! Eat them plain or with your favorite dipping sauce.


*Nutritional facts provided are only an estimate, accuracy is not guaranteed.
  • Cooking times and temperature may vary depending on your air fryer model and size.
  • My Philips Advance XXL airfryer can fit a little over 1 lb of wings in the basket. With smaller air fryers, you will need to cook them in separate batches.
  • There is no need to add oil to the chicken wings, there is enough fat on the skin to crisp it up while air frying.
  • If you like it spicy, add more chili powder and a bit of cayenne to the seasoning.
  • Make sure your air fryer basket is clean. The oil from the wings may cause it to smoke up.
