Heavenly Spiced Air Fried Wings

Air fry at 390 degrees for approx. 10-12 minutes each side

Well! If you’re into spicy chicken wings like I am, then you’ll find these will most definitely hit the spot! Not only do they take approximately 30 mins to make from prep to plate, the flavors will be dancing on your tongue for some time after, leaving you longing for more! Same again tomorrow?


10-12 wings (will fit comfortably in the air fryer basket without too much cramming depending on how big they are)

1 level tsp of course salt (or whatever you have in the kitchen)

1 tsp of chili powder (I use hot as opposed to mild)

1/2 tsp of smoked paprika

1/2 tsp each of onion and garlic powder

1 heaped tablespoon of honey

1 heaped tablespoon of chili sauce or sriracha

1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce

1 tablespoon of low sodium soy sauce or if wanting to do gluten free, use 1 teaspoon of coco aminos seasoning sauce (this generally contains less sodium than soy)

Avocado oil spray from non aerosol canister

How to:

  • Wash the wings and pat dry with a paper towel
  • Mix all ingredients in a large mixing bowl
  • Add the wings and rub in all the mixture
  • Pour 1/2 cup of water into the Ninja pot and place the wings inside the air frying basket giving them a little room to ‘breathe’ – some may want to skip this bit as unnecessary. I always add water to avoid the smoke alarm from going off when air frying. A little trick I learned from trial and error
  • Air fry at 390 degrees for about 10-12 minutes each side. Spray with avocado oil as needed whilst cooking
  • Enjoy immediately with hot sauce or any dip of your choice
