Instructions to Make Air Fryer Chicken Wings with Crushed Peppercorn

Making these Air Fryer Chicken Wings with Crushed Peppercorn is as easy as 1..2..3…:

Step One: Prepare Air Fryer and Pan or Tray

  1. Preheat your air fryer 400°.
  2. Cover a pan or tray with parchment paper.

Step Two: Bread the Wings

  1. Make sure wings have been rinsed and patted dry, then place them in a large bowl.
  2. Pour the oil over the wings and toss until lightly coated.
  3. In a separate bowl, add the flour, paprika, garlic powder, salt and 1/2 teaspoon of black peppercorn. Whisk until well combined.
  4. One at a time, thoroughly coat the wings with the dry mixture, then place on the parchment paper covered tray. I prefer to use tongs to handle mine so the breading doesn’t come off onto my fingers.
  5. Crack the remaining 1/4 teaspoon of peppercorns over the top of each wing.

Step Three: Cook the Wings

  1. Place the wings in the air fryer basket (depending on your air fryer size, you may need to divide wings and cook in batches).
  2. Cook the wings for about 30 to 35 minutes, making sure to open the basket 3 or 4 times during cooking to turn the wings with tongs. If your brand of air fryer requires more turning/shaking, go for it!
  3. Make sure each wing is crisp and dry. If there are any soft parts, let them cook just a little bit longer. The breading should be slightly browned and crispy once finished.

Step Four: Enjoy!

  1. Serve as is or with your favorite dipping sauce and enjoy!
