Ingredients

  • 2 lbs Chicken Wings About 16 drumettes and wingettes
  • 1/2 cup Potato Starch
  • Kosher Salt
  • Garlic Powder

Garlic-Honey Sauce

  • 1 tbsp Unsalted Butter
  • 3 Garlic Cloves peeled and finely minced
  • 1/4 cup Honey
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Soy Sauce
  • Thinly Sliced Green Onions for garnish

Instructions

  • Pre-heat the air fryer to 375 degrees.
  • Season the chicken wings lightly with kosher salt and dust with garlic powder on all sides.
  • Place the potato starch in a shallow bowl, then coat the chicken wings on all sides, shaking off any excess starch.
  • Transfer the wings to the air fryer basket with room between them so they aren't touching to allow for the air to flow on all sides.
  • Air fry the wings at 375 degrees for 20 minutes.
  • Increase air fryer temperature to 425 degrees and continue to cook for 15 more minutes; turning the wings a few times while they cook to ensure even crisping.

To make the Honey-Garlic Sauce

  • While the wings are air frying, heat the butter and the garlic over medium-low heat in a small saucepan until it is melted, being careful not to brown the garlic.
  • Stir in the honey and soy sauce and continue to cook until the sauce thickens, about 10 minutes.
  • Set the sauce aside and keep warm.

To Finish

  • When the chicken wings are crispy and cooked; transfer them to a warm bowl and mix with the desired amount of honey-garlic sauce plus some thinly sliced green onions for garnish. Enjoy immediately.

Notes

  • For easier clean-up, I like to place a foil-lined baking sheet below the Breville air fry basket to catch any drips.
  • If you don't have an air fryer, the wings can be cooked in a convection oven, but cooking times might be slightly longer.
