  • Add chicken wing sections to spice mix and toss to coat well.
  • Cover bowl with plastic wrap and place in refrigerator for at least half an hour. (Overnight is best if you can plan ahead)
  • After time has lapsed for the chicken to marinate, remove it from the refrigerator and let it come to room temperature. (About 30 minutes.)
  • Preheat your air fryer to 400 degrees (or follow your specific model's instructions for raw chicken wings.)
  • When the air fryer is preheated, spray the inside generously with the avocado oil spray.
  • Add a single layer of chicken wings to air fyer basket. Don't let the wings touch. Work in batches if neccessary. (Depending on size of air fryer.)
  • Cook for 20-25 minutes, flipping once halfway through cooking. Make sure to cook to an internal temperature of 165 degrees.
  • Carefully remove chicken wings from the air fyer basket to a serving dish. Continue cooking the rest of the chicken wings in batches in the same way.
  • Enjoy the dry rubbed chicken wings while warm with ranch dressing, blue cheese dressing or hot sauce if you desire some extra kick.
