How To Make Air Fryer Garlic Parmesan Wings

These delicious homemade chicken wings are ready in under 30 minutes! Gather your ingredients, season up the wings, and it’s air frying time.

  • Pat the wings dry: Use a paper towel to remove the excess moisture from the wings.
  • Season the wings: In a large bowl, toss the wings with the garlic parsley salt, paprika, ground pepper, and grated Parmesan cheese until they are evenly coated.
  • Spray the basket: Coat the air fryer basket with cooking spray or oil.
  • Air fry the wings: Arrange the wings in a single layer and air fry at 380°F for 15 minutes. Flip the wings and increase the heat to 400°F. Cook the wings for another five minutes or until cooked through. Cooking times may vary depending on the size of the wings.
  • Serve the wings: Serve the wings hot out of the air fryer with your favorite sauce. Or, enjoy them plain!

Tips For the Crispiest Air Fryer Wings

Is your mouth watering at the thought of shatteringly crisp chicken wings that are bursting with juice inside? Follow these tips to level up your wing game.

  • Pat the wings dry before seasoning. A dry surface allows the seasoning to stick better and crisp up beautifully.
  • Spray the air fryer basket with oil. This prevents the wings from sticking and losing their amazing crispy exterior.
  • Air fry the wings in a single layer. Avoid stacking the wings, as layering inhibits the hot air from circulating properly. The magic of an air fryer is the air circulation which leads to a crispy, golden-brown crust.
  • Keep the cooked wings warm in the oven. While you air fry the remaining batches of wings, set the oven to the warm setting and place the cooked wings inside. For extra hot wings, set the oven to 170-200°F.
  • Use a meat thermometer. Cooking times vary depending on the size of the wings and type of air fryer. Checking the wings with a meat thermometer like this one is your best bet to ensuring they are fully cooked. Chicken is considered safe to eat when it reaches 165°F.

Ways To Serve

These air fryer garlic Parmesan wings are the ideal quick bite or game-day snack. Serve them fresh and hot out of the air fryer with extra grated Parmesan cheese and fresh parsley. For a burst of flavor, toss the wings in garlic Parmesan sauce, buffalo sauce, or any of your favorite wing sauces. Or, make your own garlic butter sauce by combining two tablespoons of melted butter with one teaspoon of minced garlic. Wondering what to pair these wings with? A veggie platter with carrot and celery sticks is a must — don’t forget the ranch dip! Hot potato skins or zucchini pizza bites are perfect pairings, too!

Storage & Reheating

Nothing compares to freshly fried chicken wings, but the leftovers are still finger-licking good. Store your wings properly, then give them a quick reheat when you’re ready to take off into flavor land!

  • Refrigerator: To store for up to four days, place the cooked wings in an airtight container and refrigerate.
  • Freezer: To store for up to three months, flash-freeze the cooked wings on a baking sheet, then transfer them to a freezer bag. Thaw the wings overnight in the fridge before reheating.
  • Reheating: Restore the most flavor and crispness to your leftover wings by reheating them in the air fryer. Cook them at 360°F for two minutes, then increase the heat to 400°F and cook for an additional three minutes, or until the wings are until sizzling and crispy.
