A crispy chicken wing is always a fan favorite, and air fryers are great for quickly cooking them up to perfection. With the addition of baking powder, these chicken wings become even more delicious and crunchy!

Baking powder is a leavening agent that helps your food become airy and light. When cooked in an air fryer, it helps create a crispy outer layer without flour that seals in the flavor and takes chicken wings to the next level!

🍗Ingredients & Tools

  • Chicken Wings – Use fresh chicken wings for this recipe. They can be party size or regular size. Just be sure to adjust the cooking time if needed.
  • Baking Powder – Adds a crispy crunch to the skin while the dry air circulates around the chicken wings.
  • Seasonings – A simple blend of salt, pepper, and garlic powder enhances the natural flavor of the chicken wings.
  • Cooking Oil (optional) – A light brushing or spray of cooking oil gives the chicken wings an even more crispy texture. The best oil to use in the air fryer is avocado oil, as it is tasteless and can withstand high amounts of heat.
  • Air Fryer or Ninja Foodi – Any air fryer will work for this recipe. We love using the Ninja brand for its quality and many cooking capacities!
  • Heat Safe Tongs – The chicken wings will get hot when you flip them and remove them.

📖How To Make Chicken Wings With Baking Powder In The Air Fryer

1️⃣Preheat the air fryer: Preheat the air fryer to 400°F for 3-5 minutes.

2️⃣Prep the chicken wings: Pat dry chicken wings with paper towels to remove any excess moisture. Place chicken wings in a large bowl or dish and sprinkle baking powder over them, ensuring the wings are evenly coated. Add seasonings to taste and toss until combined.

3️⃣Arrange and add oil: Place chicken wings in air fryer basket, ensuring that they are not overlapping. Spray or brush them with a light coating of cooking oil.

4️⃣Air fry chicken wings: Cook at 400°F for 25-30 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165°F. Use tongs to turn them halfway through cooking for even browning and crisping.

👩‍🍳Chef’s Tips

  • How long it takes to fully cook chicken wings in the air fryer depends on the air fryer’s wattage and the size of the chicken wings. Be sure to use a kitchen-safe thermometer to ensure the chicken wings are cooked to an internal temperature of 165F.
  • Place the chicken wings in a single layer in the air fryer. If they are stacked on top of each other, they won’t cook evenly or get as crispy.
  • If you don’t have baking powder, you can use a combination of cornstarch and baking soda to get the same airy and crispy results.
