  • 1 lb. chicken wings or 500 gm.
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1.5 tsp. pepper powder
  • 1.5 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp. lemon juice


  • Wash chicken wings and pat dry.
  • Toss with salt, pepper and garlic powder with lemon juice to coat well. You can adjust the pepper to your taste. I like my wings hot.
  • Pre-heat the Air fryer at 390F or 200 C for about 5 minutes.
  • Arrange the wings on the basket in one layer. You can use parchment paper to line the basket to make cleaning easier.
  • Air fry for about 18-20 minutes at 390F or 200C.
  • You will see chicken fat draining down and the skin crisps up well and good. I take out one wing and check it for crispness and doneness.
  • Air fry for 5 minutes more if needed.
  • Take out the wings and serve hot with a dip. You could also use dipping sauces like Buffalo sauce or Bbq sauce as a dip.


1. Make sure that the wings are nice and dry before you toss them in seasoning along with lemon juice. 2. You could use 1 tbsp. of lemon pepper salt if you have that along with garlic powder (optional). 3. Adjust the quantity of pepper depending upon how much heat you like. I like my wings on the spicier side. 4. Air fry for a couple of minutes more if the wings don’t look very crisp. 5. Mayo is a favourite along with ranch with wings for me. 6. Use of parchment paper helps in making the cleanup easier. You could use foil in the bottom drawer to catch the drippings. 6. Consume them right away or they lose their crispness. 7. There is no need to use extra oil as the chicken has a lot of fat.
