Air Fryer Garlic Parmesan Chicken Wings

I am obsessed with my Air Fryer. So is my son.

He loves how quick and easy it is to make some of his most favorite treats.

They come out fried to perfection, with little to no oil. 

My son considers himself a bit of a chicken wing connoisseur. He’s maybe even a little bit wing crazy. He’d eat them daily if I made them daily.

His favorites are Garlic Parmesan and Lemon Pepper. 

So a couple of afternoon’s ago, we decided to whip up these easy Air Fryer Garlic Parmesan Chicken Wings.

Air Fryer Garlic Parmesan Chicken Wings

I think my favorite part of having an Air Fryer is literally the ability to make a “fried” snack fast.

And still have it be full of flavor and moist and delicious inside, while the outside is crisp to perfection.

Chicken is especially amazing to cook in the Air Fryer and we’ve done just about every style you can imagine from drumsticks, to thighs, breasts to nuggets.

I made these Air Fryer Garlic Parmesan Chicken Wings in batches to help the air circulate better and I recommend doing that.

It adds just a little more time to the process but it turns out a perfectly crisp, yet juicy chicken wing.

Don’t have any air fryer and still want to make these Air Fryer Garlic Parmesan Chicken Wings? You can.

They can be oven baked but they won’t crisp up. They’ll still taste delicious though.

Also if you don’t have an air fryer, this is the one I have

I absolutely love it.

I have the digital version, I can’t say anything about the manual with the dials.

We’ve made fried chicken, burgers, fries, taquitos, egg rolls, bacon and more.

Air Fryer Garlic Parmesan Chicken Wings

There are dozens of versions and varieties of Air Fryer’s and the only thing I have learned across the board, is that they don’t all work the same way.

They also don’t always cook the same way.

So with that said, these Air Fryer Garlic Parmesan Chicken Wings were made with the Magic Chef XL Air Fryer 5.6 Qt.

That is what they were tested in several times and so the times and temperatures were for this specific model.

Servings 2 lbs chicken wings

Ingredients
  

  • 2 lbs. chicken wings
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons garlic minced
  • teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ¼ cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1 ½ stick butter melted

Instructions
 

  • In a large bowl, blend together the salt, pepper, garlic, paprika, Parmesan cheese and melted butter. Toss the wings in the sauce to get an even coating all over each wing. Toss several times to coat.
  • Place the chicken wings inside your Air Fryer basket. Don’t overcrowd the wings too much. I do about 1lb at a time. In my opinion it’s best to do in batches so the air can circulate around the wings as much as possible. Just makes for a better crisp. Some people just put them all in there, but I have had better results in two batches.
  • Set the air fryer temperature to 380 degrees F.
  • Set the timer for 20 minutes.
  • Press start and allow chicken wings to cook for full 20 minutes. However, about every 5 minutes remove the basket, shake the chicken to keep the wings cooking evenly.
  • After 20 minutes, toss the wings one last time and remove immediately. Be careful, hot!
  • Enjoy and serve with your favorite sauce, or simply as is.

Did you thaw the wings before hand ?

Hi Patrick, Well, my wings weren't frozen when I started so I guess yes, they were thawed. However you could do this with frozen wings too, you'd just need to add a couple of minutes onto the cooking time.

I may have done something wrong... but almost all of the coating came off in the air fryer... any advice?

Thanks!

I haven't had that happen, and we make these a lot. I wonder if your air fryer puts out a lot of air and it's blowing it all off? I mean, as you can see in the photos, there isn't a lot of "coating" to the wings to begin with. Maybe try marinating them for about a half hour or so in the sauce before putting them in the air fryer and see if you have better results. Let me know how it works. I think the biggest problem with air fryers is that they really are very different from one another but this should still work for you.

This is truly a nice recipe with good clear instructions. Some observations, though: To enjoy the crispiness to the fullest, IMHO, the wings should be consumed as soon as safely possible. Holding them in a warming drawer diminishes the crispiness, however, eaten immediately the wings are a delight.

Thanks for this!

Hi Darren, Thank you! I'm so glad you liked them and that the directions were easy to follow. Much like you, I'd definitely advise against storing in a warming drawer, because it definitely does take away from the crispiness. That crispiness is what makes them so amazing. Enjoy!
