Sometimes, the simplest recipes are the tastiest. And when it comes to fried chicken, all you really need are two ingredients to make a meal that’s so scrumptious, your taste buds won’t believe it. That’s right, just two ingredients: chicken wings and my secret ingredient—fried chicken flour—are all you need for fried chicken perfection.
Two-ingredient air fryer fried chicken wings are a delicious and simple way to enjoy crispy and flavorful wings without the time and mess of deep frying.
9 Chicken Wings
2 tbsp Fried chicken flour
Pre-heat your air fryer to 400°F.
Place chicken wings in a mixing bowl and lightly coat with fried chicken flour. Make sure wings are fully coated. (If you add too much flour – the wings will be very floury! So be careful.
Place the wings in the pre-heated air fryer basket and (lightly spray with spray oil) cook for 16-18 minutes, flipping once halfway through cooking.
Once cooked, remove from air fryer and serve warm with your favorite dipping sauce!
If you don’t have fried chicken flour, you can use regular all-purpose flour instead. Just make sure to season.
Here is an alternative recipe:
½ cup of all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon of garlic powder
1 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of onion powder
1 teaspoon of smoked paprika.
….Mix together until combined. This can be used instead for the fried chicken flour blend!
1. Make sure the chicken wings are completely and evenly coated with flour before cooking. This will ensure they get crispy on the outside and juicy, tender on the inside.
2. For extra flavor, you can add your favorite spices to the fried chicken flour mix before coating the wings (e.g., garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika).
3. To ensure safety while cooking, use a meat thermometer to check that chicken is cooked through – it should be 165°F in the center of each wing.
4. Don’t overcrowd your air fryer basket – this will help make sure the wings get nice and crispy all over!
