  • Method: Air Fryer
  • Cuisine: American


  • 1 and ½ lbs. chicken wings
  • 2 Tbsp. soy sauce
  • ¼ cup potato starch
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 Tbsp. butter
  • 3 Tbsp. honey
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. red pepper flakes (less if you don’t want it spicy)


  1. Toss wings with soy sauce and set aside.
  2. Preheat air fryer for a few minutes. Put the potato starch in a large zip top plastic bag and add wings to bag. Shake until wings are evenly coated with potato starch. Grease air fryer basket with a bit of oil (don’t use cooking spray!) and arrange wings in basket, shaking off any excess potato starch and being careful not to crowd the basket. Cook in batches if necessary.
  3. Cook at 360°F for 12 minutes. Flip over and cook for another 12 minutes. Turn temperature up to 400°F and cook another 5-6 minutes to crisp.
  4. Microwave garlic and butter for 30 seconds, or until melted. Stir in honey and season with a pinch of salt and red pepper flakes. Toss wings in sauce and serve.
