air fryer salt & pepper chicken wings

Recipe by

This recipe can be used with any other sauce combination you want by just tossing the cooked wings into your favorite flavor. We prefer these because they are so versatile with how you can top them. Because of the use of the baking powder, which isn't often used in savory dishes, you get a nice crispy outside. These wings are possibly the best wings we have ever had and we have eaten wings in many different places over the years. Guaranteed to be a new favorite.
