Air Fryer Cooking Makes Healthier Chicken Wings

Often chicken wings are deep fried but now you can enjoy the crispy, delicious chicken wings made healthier with air frying.

I’m a fan of hot chicken wings (I love all types of spicy food) but I’ve made these lemon chicken wings several times now for my family and I have to say, these are a new favorite of mine. The mixture of flavors is amazing and the sprinkle of Parmesan on top makes them extra delicious.

I love how the air fryer gets these crispy, too.

How to Cook Air Fryer Chicken Wings

Chicken wings are a great item to cook in the air fryer because the convection method makes them especially crispy.

  1. Preheat air fryer to 400.
  2. If desired, brush chicken wings with olive oil.
  3. Place chicken wings in air fryer basket, taking care to leave room for air to circulate.
  4. Bake for 8 minutes per side, for a total of approximately 24 minutes.
  5. Check that chicken is done near bone, then serve.

Weight Watchers Points in Air Fryer Chicken Wings

Calculating points for chicken wings can be a bit tricky since the number of wings varies per pound. I spent quite a long time with my WW app calculating this recipe.

We assumed that 2.5 pounds of chicken wings was approximately 15 wings

Each chicken wing is 6 WW Smart Points.

Each chicken wing (with skin removed before cooking) is 2 points.

Taking the skin off chicken wings is a pain in the butt, but you have to admit it makes a significant difference in the points for the recipe. I’ll leave that decision up to you.
