Print Recipe



  • 2 pounds chicken wingettes
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil or avocado oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • extra oil for greasing

Buffalo Sauce:

  • 1/3 cup hot pepper sauce I used Frank's Red Hot
  • 1/4 cup butter butter flavored coconut oil for dairy-free
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground chipolte pepper or cayenne pepper



  • In large bowl, rub olive oil on chicken wings and then sprinkle on the garlic powder and salt.
  • Rub inside of air fryer basket with a little more olive oil, avocado oil, or coconut oil. 
  • Place chicken wings in a single layer in basket.
  • Cook wings at 360°F for 25 minutes.
  • Flip wings over. Then increase temperature to 400°F and cook for 4 more minutes.


  • While wings are cooking in air fryer, combine hot sauce, butter, vinegar, and ground pepper in small pot.
  • Bring sauce to a boil on medium heat while whisking everything together. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • When wings are done, add them to the sauce and coat each piece evenly.
  • Serve with blue cheese dressing and celery.



Although not required, it's best to oil both the chicken and the air fryer to give the chicken a crispy fried texture on the outside.
I prefer using olive or avocado oil on the chicken and coconut oil to grease the air fryer basket.
If you don’t like spicy wings, just use less hot sauce.
