Air fryer sweet and sour chicken wings. Sweet and sour chicken wings are perfect for game-day snacking! These tasty wings are crispy on the outside and tender on the inside.

The Best Ways to Make Air Fryer Wings Taste as Good as Fried Wings

It is all about the sauce. In order to make air fryer wings taste as good as fried wings, you need to have a good sauce. The sweet and sour sauce is one of the best sauces for this dish.

The first thing to do when making air fryer wings is to preheat your oven at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 5 minutes. Next, take out your air fryer and coat the air fryer basket with oil or cooking spray. Place your wings in the basket, then turn them over halfway through the cooking time so both sides get cooked evenly. Finally, take out some sweet and sour sauce from the fridge and pour it over your delicious crispy wings!

What are the benefits of an air fryer?

Air fryers are popular because they can cook food up to 80% faster than a traditional oven. They also use less oil and fat than other cooking methods, which makes them more healthy. The air fryer’s design is also different from other appliances, which means that it can be stored in a small space and doesn’t take up much counter space.

A lot of people appreciate that the air fryer is easy to clean and maintain. It doesn’t have any removable parts, so it’s easy to wipe down after each use. It also has a non-stick coating on the inside, so food doesn’t stick to the sides or bottom of the basket while it cooks.

What are the benefits of using an air fryer for cooking wings?

Air fryers are a great way to cook food without using oil. They have a convection fan that circulates the hot air around the food, which gives it a crispy texture.

The main benefit of cooking wings in an air fryer is that they come out juicy and crispy without having to use any oil.

What sauce can I use for chicken wings?

The best sauce for chicken wings is based on personal preference. If you like spicy, then Buffalo sauce is the way to go. For those who prefer something sweeter, honey mustard or barbecue sauce might be a better option. If you want something tangy and tart, then your best bet would be blue cheese dressing or ranch dressing.

  • 1 ½ pounds (760 g) chicken wings
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • To Make a Sauce:
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) white wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) pineapple juice
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Sriracha sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 3/4 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds


Step 1

Preheat your air fryer to 400 F (200 C) for 5 minutes. Spray the air fryer basket with nonstick cooking spray.

Step 2

Pat chicken wings dry with paper towels. In a small mixing bowl, combine baking powder, salt, black pepper, and paprika. Stir well and pour the mixture into a resealable plastic bag. Workin in batches, place chicken wings into the bag and shake until wings are well coated. Repeat the same way with the remaining wings.

Step 3

Place seasoned wings in the air fryer basket. Fry at 380 F (190 C) for 22 minutes, flipping them halfway through.

Step 4

To make a sauce: In a small saucepan, combine vinegar, pineapple juice, ketchup, brown sugar, soy sauce, Sriracha sauce, and sesame oil. Stir well and bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally. In a small mixing bowl, combine cornstarch and water. Stir well and pour into the saucepan. Whisk quickly until the sauce thickens, for about 1 minute.

Step 5

Increase the fryer temperature to 400 F (200 C). Fry wings for a further 2 minutes, or until crispy and brown.

Step 6

Remove fried wings from the air fryer and transfer them to a serving plate. Pour the sauce over the fried wings. Toss well. Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds. Serve hot.
