    Turned out great! So crispy and tender, yet because it was double the amount of wings, I used twice the amount of baking powder, Cajun seasoning (besides chilli powder) and a teaspoon of cayenne and some sriracha salt.

    These came out so good. One thing I would do would be to pre heat the air fryer, the second batch was more crispy.

    This was very good. I have a small air fryer. I found that 400 degrees for 20 minutes was ideal.

    These were amazingly crisp and juicy! My husband, a hot wing aficionado, declared these wings without sauce, in his top 5. After they were all done cooking, he sauced his half and I left mine “naked” with only the rub used from the recipe. Here were a few changes I made due to a smaller air fryer. I had 18 wings all together and I was able to fit 6 wings per batch, total of three batches. My air fryers top temp is 400 degrees, so I knew that the time would have to be adjusted. I put the first batch in for 22 minutes and they were perfect. Since the fryer was still very warm, I cooked the 2nd and 3rd batch for 20 minutes and again they were perfect. In between batches, I held the cooked wings in the oven set at 200 degrees. As I said, my husband sauced his and I ate mine naked. Because we cooked 18 wings, I adjusted the seasoning to 1 1/2 servings. I found that the chili powder did not provide a lot of heat so if you’re shying away, I don’t feel it’s a need. If you’re looking for more heat, obviously use more or a different blend. I think next time I’ll definitely up the garlic and maybe even play around with some other herb and seasoning blends. I would be careful about salt though. I felt like I brought the flavor to the edge without becoming salty. I measured my salt exactly as the recipe called for and another half that amount to reflect the number of wings and the recipe for the rub. Overall, this recipe is a game changer in the world of “fried” chicken wings. SO easy and SO yummy!!

    Best wings ever! We like ours a little more well done, so I cooked them at 400° for 27 minutes. Perfection!

    This is exactly what it says: extra crispy chicken wings. These turned out great and now that I understand what’s needed (baking powder), I plan to try different spices and c how they come out.

    I ramped up the spice, but overall very good and more importantly - crispy. The wings held up to the buffalo wing sauce without being soggy.
