lime wedges, optional
Bring chicken wings to room temperature before cooking for at least an hour. This will help them cook faster.
Using a paper towel, oil the inside of the air fryer basket. This will help the meat from sticking.
Once at room temperature, pat the chicken wings dry using paper towels. In a medium bowl, mix the dry seasoning ingredients together, add in the wings, and toss to coat. Place the seasoned chicken wings inside the air fryer basket.
Set the air fryer temperature to 400ºF and the time for 20-22 minutes. Remove the basket halfway through cooking and flip the wings so they cook evenly.
After the 20 minutes, check the wings to see if they need more time. Smaller wings should cook between 20-22 minutes, and larger ones may need 22-25 minutes.
Once cooked, remove the wings from the air fryer and serve with celery sticks and my EASY HOMEMADE RANCH DRESSING. Leave them as is or coat in your favorite sauce or squeeze a little lime juice over top.
