Man. Website stuff sucks sometimes. Technology is kind of the pits. If I ever pop out a child, I will want to do the right thing as a parent and force them in to the job that I see as best. Such as coding. Or website development. Or SEO auditing. Mostly because it would really help me out longterm. And isn’t that what parenting is all about? Your children living out your own personal dream? I’m kidding. Coding isn’t my dream. Nor are children.

I kid. But something that I am super serious about is apologizing. If you’ve had any issues with my website or my podcast lately, I’m sorry about that!! I’m doing all sorts of updates and changes to my site after I recently did an SEO audit to check on everything that’s wrong with what I’ve built over the past 8 years. Turns out…a lot. You know that scene in Sex and the City where Samantha goes in for some fat injection in her cheeks then asks the surgeon what else he would recommend she get done, then he pretty much draws on her entire body, pointing out every flaw she never knew she had? An SEO audit is kind of like that. You think you’re doing your best every day and it just ain’t good enough. So anywho, changes and updates are continually happening over here which is leading to some headaches. But hopefully all the kinks and flaws will be liposuctioned out soon. See what I did there?PaleOMG Sweet & Spicy Air Fryer Chicken Wings

But let’s get to what’s important here – the food. You’ve probably noticed at this point that I’m pretty damn obsessed with my air fryer. I love it so damn much. And use it almost every day. I even have a tab on my blog for it now. The only downside that I’ve found is that it is HUGE so if you have a smaller kitchen, it makes things more challenging. I have a medium size kitchen so I’m able to store it away on it’s side in a big drawer. But other than that, I love it. Even more so now that I’ve made chicken wings in it. I love making chicken wings in the oven because I’ve been able to get them pretty crispy in there, BUT it usually smokes up my entire kitchen and leaves a huge mess in the oven…that I never end up cleaning. But in the air fryer – no smoke, no huge clean up, no issues. The ONLY problem is that you have to cook the wings in smaller batches to make sure they evenly cook and get extra crispy. It’s a small price to pay for the crispiest wings you’ll ever have!

But if spice isn’t your thing when it comes to chowing down on wings this Super Bowl Sunday, you can also try my Pad Thai Chicken Wings, Honey Lime Chicken Wings with Creamy Avocado Cilantro Dip, or my Rosemary Honey Mustard Chicken Wings. Any of these wings recipes would be amazing made in the air fryer. And hopefully you are signed up for my newsletter because today I’m sending one out with 25 of my favorite Super Bowl party food must-makes! If you like football, this is the only way I can support you and you football watching goals. Other than that, I can’t help. Football is the worst.

Sweet & Spicy Air Fryer Chicken Wings

  • Author: juli
  • Yield: 12-14 wings 1x


  • 1214 chicken wings (you can do more, but this is the amount that will fit in to you a 6qt air fryer. if you make more, work in batches)
  • salt
  • 1/2 cup Frank’s Red Hot Sauce
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • cilantro, roughy chopped
  • flake salt, for garnish
  • black pepper, for garnish


  1. Pat chicken wings dry. Sprinkle with salt. Spray coconut oil spray on the rack of a 6qt air fryer. Place the chicken wings throughout the rack, making sure to leave a little room between each wing so they can cook evenly.
  2. Turn temperature up to 400 degrees and time to 25 minutes then press start.
  3. While the wings cook, place hot sauce and honey in a saucepan over medium heat and cook for about 5-8 minutes, until it combines and slightly reduces.
  4. Once the wings are done, toss in some of the sauce and serve the rest of the sauce on the side. Top with cilantro, flake salt and black pepper before serving!

    Hey Juli- Do you have any recommendations for making the same recipe without an air fryer? Public School Teachers don’t make a lot these days… thank you!!

  3. Rebecca says:

    We eat a lot of wings and these are hands down the best we’ve ever had! We added some pepper and red pepper flakes to the sauce and borrowed a friends air fryer to give them a try… OMG we can’t stop eating them!

    I purchased the Air Fryer for Super Bowl. Your wings were the BOMB! Everyone wanted more. My husband wants to try all the wing flavors and he has decided that the Air Fryer is his new favorite appliance!
