Air Fryer Chicken Wings – Spicy, Sweet & Savory

Air Fryer Chicken Wings

Spicy, Sweet & Savory

I don’t know about you, but I’m kinda sick of regular ol’ buffalo wings. I guess I’ve reached the point in life where I’ve nearly eaten too many of them. Well… that’s not entirely true. There’s one exception to this “rule”. If there’s a truly amazing sauce, I can still put away a dozen (or two) in one sitting. I’m happy to report that these Air Fryer chicken wings fall into the latter category.

And as Always… Please Pin & Share the Love!

  • 2 pounds fresh chicken wings
  • salt & pepper
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • 1/2 cup Franks Original not the buffalo
  • 1/4 cup molasses


  • In a large bowl - season chicken wings with salt and pepper to taste. Then fold wings into triangles by tucking the tip behind the drumette. Place wings into Air Fryer in a single layer with the tips facing down.
  • Set Air Fryer timer for 20 minutes and cook at 400 degrees. After 10 minutes pass, flip the wings so that the tips are facing up. Then flip again every 5 minutes after that.
  • Meanwhile, wash the same large bowl and set aside. Melt butter in microwave then add to bowl and combine with Franks and molasses. Whisk until fully combined.
  • Once cook time is complete - add wings to bowl and toss well to coat fully.
  • Place wings back in Air Fryer (tips down) and cook for another 5 minutes at 350 degrees.
  • Remove wings and transfer to a plate with a paper towel to drain excess fat.
  • Serve and enjoy!
