It’s National Chicken Wing Day, ya’ll! Did you know that was a thing? By now, if you’re a foodie, then you probably know that it’s a thing lol Around this time last year to celebrate National Chicken Wing Day, I shared my oven-baked jerk wings and they took off. I mean really took off. Hundreds of thousands of views and counting on Instagram and Tiktok. If you guys know me, then you know I love a good wing recipe. I have been obsessed with my air fryer since I got it and I wanted to do a special wing recipe for National Chicken Wing Day, so I came up with these flavor-packed air fryer chicken wings. Simple, pantry seasonings come together to make these wings taste like they have been marinating for days. They are delicious to the bone. I shared these with my family and they couldn’t stop raving about how good they were. I think it was just the combination of seasonings that set them apart. I sauced some up and I left some naked for my hubby to enjoy and he tore them up. You guys have to try this recipe.

Common question

Can I make this in the oven instead?
Yes, you can! I would cook the wings on a single layer in the oven at 425-450 degrees for 15-20 minutes on the top rack until golden brown and crispy on both sides. Be sure to flip halfway through and use a meat thermometer to check internal temperature has registered 165 degrees.

What air fryer do you use?
