If your chicken wings are frozen make sure to thaw them thoroughly and Pat them dry with a paper towel.
Now Place the chicken wings, pressed garlic, salt, pepper, paprika, and oil in a large bowl.
Using your clean hands, toss all the ingredients around until thoroughly combined. Then cover the chicken with plastic wrap and refrigerate for three hours to marinate. If you don't have time to marinate the chicken, you can still cook it right away.
￼￼Place the marinated chicken in the bottom of your air fryer basket and cook at 390 degrees Fahrenheit for 12 minutes flipping halfway through. ￼
Then cook for another 8 minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit to get the outside of the skin nice and crispy.
Flavor Variations LEMON PEPPER- Add the chicken wings to a large bowl along with 1 pressed garlic clove, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/8 tsp pepper, 1/2 tsp paprika, and 2 tsp olive oil. Then mix it up. Preheat the air fryer to 390 degrees Fahrenheit and cook the chicken wings for 12 minutes flipping halfway through. Then pick the heat up to 400 and cook for another 8 minutes. Then melt unsalted butter in a saucepan with garlic powder, onion powder, and lemon pepper seasoning and pour it over the crispy wings. BBQ- Mix the wings with 1 pressed garlic clove, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/8 tsp black pepper, 1/2 tsp paprika, and 2 tsp olive oil and cook the wings the same exact way you did with the lemon pepper flavor.
