  • Following on from the air fryer thread – spicy chicken wing recipes?

    I have a craving for some spicy chicken wings and think the air fryer combo might be the perfect tool.

    I know there are hundreds on line but would really appreciate some personally recommended spicy wing recipes.

    Not bothered about the style Asian, Caribbean whatever, just something tasty.

    Any suggestions?

    Nowt really to add to the request, but the only thing that’s made our air fryer properly smoke (as in fill the house) was chicken (thighs, not wings) – the spitting fat hit the hot plate/element bit and belched out loads of smoke. On the odd occasion when we’ve done it since, we’ve put the air fryer outdoors.

    We’ve made homemade KFC and they were amazing, might be able to substitute a few ingredients to spice them up?

    I’ve tried a few different recipes / rubs and have found one that I really like for chicken thighs, skinless works well.
    There’s definitely no issues with smoke in my air fryer.
    If you want it spicy just double the amount of cayenne pepper. Not used it on chicken wings though. Ingredients are:

    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
    1/2 teaspoon smoked or sweet paprika
    1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
    1/2 teaspoon onion powder
    1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
    1/2 teaspoon dried basil
    1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
    1/4 teaspoon dried parsley

    Mix all the ingredients together, dry the chicken first with paper towel, rub onto chicken and leave for at least an hour.
    Place chicken thighs in air fryer and cook on 190 for 10 minutes, turn the chicken then cook for a further 8 or 9 minutes at 195.
    You can try lightly spraying the coated chicken with oil before frying

    I posted this recipe on the BBQ thread a while back.

    This is – allegedly – the actual secret KFC blend.

    2 cups white flour
    2/3 ts salt
    1/2 ts thyme
    1/2 ts basil
    1/3 ts oregano
    1 ts celery salt
    1 ts black pepper
    1 ts dried mustard
    4 ts paprika
    2 ts garlic salt
    1 ts ground ginger
    3 ts white pepper

    It’s not wildly dissimilar to the ones above. I’ve not tried it yet.

    Made these at the weekend, exceptional and really easy. Can make the glaze as hot as you like.

    And I’ve tried this KFC recipe and it wasn’t too bad at all.
    I’ve put the YouTube link below but be warned the person in the video is a bit annoying

    This one soaks the chicken in buttermilk before coating the chicken

    2 cups flour
    2/3 tablespoon salt
    1/2 tablespoon thyme
    1/2 tablespoon basil
    1/3 tablespoon oregano
    1 tablespoon celery salt
    1 tablespoon black pepper
    1 tablespoon dry mustard
    4 tablespoon paprika
    2 tablespoon garlic salt
    1 tablespoon ginger
    3 tablespoon white pepper (1tbsp not 3)

    Mix all together then coat chicken 7 times per side

    Air fry and eat!!

    You want the wings pretty dry as (being wings) they have a lot of fat in them that comes out during cooking. Any spice mix you use definitely needs some added flour

    That’s literally the same recipe I posted, in the same order and everything. 😁

    That “one cup of buttermilk” she uses there is at least two, that’s a half-litre jug I think.

    Five point eight quarts? Jesus America, we need to talk.

    Lol @ cougar
    I must have copied and pasted your recipe 😂

    Probably a shared ancestor source. It’s not my recipe (because what maniac uses cups to measure flour?) and I’m damned if I know where that came from now, I’ve had it ages.
