Ingredients

FOR THE CHICKEN WINGS

  • 1 pound bone-in skin-on chicken wings
  • 2 tablespoons rice flour see notes

FOR THE SAUCE

  • 4 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons sriracha or to taste
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch

Instructions

FOR THE CHICKEN WINGS

  • Preheat the air fryer to 400F and spray the basket with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Pat the chicken wings dry with a paper towel and toss them with rice flour.
  • Cook for 12 minutes or until the wings begin turning golden brown. Be sure to turn the wings halfway through for even cooking.

FOR THE SAUCE

  • For the sauce, whisk all the ingredients together in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil and cook until the sauce has thickened. Set it aside to cool completely before saucing.
  • Enjoy immediately or store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.

Notes

  • Adjust the sriracha to suit your taste. Use more if you like things really spicy and less if you prefer a more mild wing.
  • For a little extra flavor add some grated ginger or a little lime zest.
  • You could also make this with boneless wings. Just adjust the air fryer temperature to 370 and the cook time to 14-15 minutes.
  • Make sure to not crowd the basket of the fryer.
