FAQ & TIPS
Cooking time may vary-
Depending on the size of your air fryer, and the size of your wings your cook time may vary. You want to have nice juicy wings with a crispy texture on the outside. So be careful not to overcook your wings. You want them to reach an internal temperature of 165 without drying them out use a meat thermometer for best results to check the temp!
Pat the wings dry-
For best results and nice crispy skin dry your wings with a paper towel before seasoning and air frying the wings.
How to store these wings-
If you have leftover wings they are best stored refrigerated in an airtight container. To reheat them you can place them back in the air fryer for about 5 minutes to heat them through or place them on a parchment lined baking sheet in the oven at 350 for about 5 minutes.
What to serve with these wings-
These crispy garlic parmesan wings are the perfect party appetizer or main dish! If you are adding them to an appetizer spread you can serve them up with other wings, chips, chopped veggies like carrots or celery sticks, and your favorite sauce selection. If you’re serving them as a side dish they are great with a side salad, or other favorite salad, french fries, tater tots or your favorite side dish.
How to butcher whole wings-
Chicken wings can be sold already cut or whole. If you purchase whole chicken wings you’ll need to butcher them a little before cooking. Chicken wings have 3 pieces, the drumette, the flat, and the wing tip. You’ll want to separate the three parts and discard the wing tips.
