Boneless Chicken Wings Air Fryer Recipe:

Does the Air Fryer make the Wings Crispy?

Essentially, the air fryer moves air quickly over food similar to broiling it in an oven that it gives the food a similar tastes to food that has been fried in oil. It is crispy and delicious without all of the oil!

The air fryer doesn’t require a large amount of oil like a traditional fryer requires so foods cooked in the air fryer generally have less calories and less fat than fried foods.

How to make Frozen Boneless Chicken Wings in the Air Fryer:

You can easily prepare the frozen boneless chicken in the air fryer. You would skip the steps in the recipe that shows you how to prepare the fresh chicken. Then you would heat in the air fryer and toss with buffalo sauce.

We do recommend making fresh boneless chicken wings as they taste better, but using a frozen ones is a quick to get you chicken wing fix.

What to Serve with Boneless Chicken Wings:

When we serve boneless chicken wings there are many dips and sides that we serve. Most of the time when we have these chicken wings for dinner, we call it a snack dinner. Here are some of my favorite sides:

  • Dipping Sauce – Ranch and Blue Cheese are the common dipping sauce that we like.
  • Vegetable Tray – If you make hot buffalo wings, having celery and carrots provides relief from the heat.
  • Pizza – Make homemade pizza and serve it with your wings.
  • Quesadilla – Quesadilla’s and potato skins are usually included when we have snack dinner.
  • See Best Sides for Chicken Wings for more ideas.

What are the Best Chicken Wing Flavors?

  • Buffalo Wing Sauce – Using a buffalo sauce to cover the chicken is a family favorite. You can make your own or use the jar stuff. You can also use hot sauce to add some heat to your wings.
  • Ranch Seasoning Mix – Dry Ranch Seasoning Mix as a dry rub is my daughter’s favorite.
  • Teriyaki Sauce – If you are wanting a sweeter version, toss you buffalo wings with teriyaki sauce.
  • Barbecue Sauce – Barbecue Sauce is always a crowd pleaser. You can even make Homemade BBQ Sauce with simple ingredients.
