  • 2 pounds of chicken wings
  • 1/4 cup of olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon of dried herbs such as basil, oregano, and thyme
  • 1 tablespoon of freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 2 cloves of garlic minced


  • Marinate the Chicken Wings: In a large bowl, mix together the olive oil, dried herbs, black pepper, salt, and minced garlic. Add the chicken wings to the bowl and toss them until they're fully coated in the marinade. Cover the bowl and let the wings marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours, or overnight for best results.
  • Preheat the Air Fryer: Preheat your air fryer to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Prepare the Wings for Cooking: Remove the chicken wings from the marinade, shaking off any excess. Arrange the wings in a single layer in the air fryer basket. Depending on the size of your air fryer, you may need to cook the wings in batches.
  • Cook the Chicken Wings: Cook the chicken wings in the air fryer at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes, flipping them halfway through to ensure they cook evenly.
  • Check the Wings: Check that the wings are cooked through and crispy by inserting a meat thermometer into the thickest part of a wing. The internal temperature should reach 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Serve: Once the chicken wings are fully cooked, remove them from the air fryer and serve hot. Enjoy them as they are, or with your favorite dipping sauce.
