How to Cook Chicken Wings in the Air FryerEver since I got my Air Fryer a few months ago, I have been dying to make chicken wings. This is the one thing everyone seems to rave about, and after having a couple of recipe fails, I was ready for something to actually work. I knew that I wanted to use a delicious batter for them to get nice and crispy in, but I also knew I wanted to have a great sauce to baste them in. I’ve always loved the flavor of BBQ Sauce and Coke – it’s just such a delicious combination. So I thought I would try that for this recipe. I just made my own little sauce, and I basted it before, during, and after, and I waited with bated breath to see how it turned out. Anyways, back to the recipe. It turned out DELICIOUS. I couldn’t have been happier with the results. They were juicy, crispy, and full over amazing flavor!
