  • Bowls
  • Basting brushes
  • Tongs
  • cooking spray
  • Meat thermometer (optional)


  • 10 to 12 chicken wings thawed and dried
  • 1/2 tsp. salt 2g
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder 2g
  • 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper 1g
  • 1/4 tsp. paprika 1g
  • 2 tbsp yellow mustard 26g
  • 1 1/2 tbsp honey 21g
  • 2 to 3 tbsp barbecue sauce 26 to 40g doesn't have to be exact, add more as needed


  • If you have frozen chicken wings, make sure to thaw them out first. Then dab the chicken with paper towel to dry them.
  • Mix together the dry seasonings in a bowl. In a small bowl combine both the honey and the mustard. In another small bowl add a few tablespoons of your favorite barbecue sauce.
  • Lay the chicken wings out flat on a cutting board and sprinkle the seasonings on each side evenly. You can also place the wings in a bag and shake it with the seasonings, or place them in the bowl and season them in that.
  • Remove the air fryer basket and spray it with cooking spray. Lay down a layer of wings. You should be able to get 8 to 12 wings on the bottom. It's okay if the wings touch each other. Set the temp to 375 F/190 C. And cook for 8 minutes.
  • Once done remove the basket and baste whichever ones you want with the honey mustard sauce and barbecue sauce. Then flip them over and baste the other side. I usually do a third plain, third honey mustard, and a third barbecue. Totally up to you.
  • Now replace the basket and cook for another 8 to 10 minutes. Once done, remove the basket. They are ready to go. You can check them with a meat thermometer if you like. Internal temp should be at least 165 F/74 C. Or cut into one and make sure there isn't any pink.
  • Baste the again with any leftover sauce if you like, and serve. Enjoy!



The nutritional facts will vary depending on what flavors you make, but if you do all three flavors and use all the sauces this is pretty accurate.
