Most of the time I make wings either on a charcoal grill using the Vortex insert, on my Char-Broil Big Easy, in an air fryer, or I deep fry them. But sometimes none of those options are available. That’s when I ‘fire up’ my convection oven. And you know, the wings are actually pretty darned good! Nothing will ever match deep frying wings in oil, but this is close enough when a deep fryer isn’t available. These crispy convection oven wings satisfy my wing craving just fine, thank you!
When your crispy convection oven wings are done, don’t make them sad by adding cold wing sauce right out of the fridge! That cold sauce will kill some of that crispiness that you had, and it’ll make your wings mighty darned cold! So if you’re using leftover, refrigerated sauce, warm it up while the wings are cooking. Then sauce those little beauties right out of the oven!
I’ve been using Sweet Baby Ray’s barbecue sauce for years. It’s a great sauce as-is, but it also makes for a good starter for making my own BBQ sauce. But until now I’d never tried their Buffalo wing sauce. For some reason, I needed a coupon to get me off my butt and to the grocery store to pick up a bottle. Well, boy am I sorry for having waited so long to try it. This sauce makes for the perfect Buffalo wings. It is exactly what I was looking for when I made a quick batch of air fryer wings for lunch the other day. The right consistency, the right amount of spice, it’s spot-on good.
I’ve read a few reviews of Sweet Baby Ray’s Buffalo wing sauce that say it’s too spicy. Well, yeah, each of us have a different definition of what’s spicy, but I definitely found this to be just right. It has a bit of kick. Hey, it’s a Buffalo wing sauce. It contains cayenne pepper. It’s gonna have some heat. But for me, it’s definitely not over the top.
Don’t wait around for a coupon to pick up a bottle of this sauce. Learn from my mistakes!
Well, I admit it. I had no idea how good wings made in an air fryer could be. I figured, meh, air fryer wings… But, like my convection oven wings, they came out moist, tender, and with great crunchy skin! These wings make for the perfect quick lunch, which is why they’ve quickly become a standard dish around our house. I didn’t need any help with my wing addiction, these just made it worse!
I recommend that you use a rub or seasoning that doesn’t contain sugar when you make air fryer wings. Now, you can certainly add a sweet rub after the wings are cooked, but that seasoning will tend to burn (or at least char) if you have it on the wings while they cook. Just good old salt is fine. The salt won’t overpower the wings and will let you add any sauce or seasoning later without having to worry about the tastes conflicting with each other.
I actually had no plans to get an air fryer. Our neighbor gave me her spare after receiving a new one for Christmas. It took one batch of wings to convince me that I was missing out. I eventually wore it out so I bought the exact same model to replace it. It easily makes enough wings for two people.
Mustard. Chicken wings. I had no idea. Sure, I like mustard. On sandwiches, or hot dogs. Or burgers. But, wings? My beloved chicken wings? Yes. Oh yes. Gold Fever chicken wings have quickly rocketed to the top of the ‘wings we want’ list around here. Anita absolutely loves them. Don’t worry about them being overly mustardy, either. There’s plenty of traditional Buffalo wing flavor too.
I just made a big batch of Gold Fever wings a few days ago. I’m making another tomorrow. That’s how good they are. Finger-licking good. Mustard. Chicken wings. Fantastic.
These savory garlic Parmesan chicken wings were just fantastic. Nutty Parmesan cheese pairs well with earthy garlic. For me, just a little bit of cool Ranch dressing for dipping is all that is required. I want to enjoy the flavor of the wings, so I just dip a bit, if at all.
I cooked these garlic Parmesan wings on my Weber charcoal grill using the Vortex insert, which gives me that great crunchy skin and fantastic grilled flavor without a lot of effort. In fact, just about no effort whatsoever.
I’m a huge fan of making chicken wings without saucing them in the traditional Buffalo wing manner. I season them and let them marinate for a bit, then cook them. When they are done I toss them with more seasoning and serve them ‘dry’, with a dipping sauce on the side. This time I used the Garlic Sriracha seasoning from Weber, which is a little spicy, for some garlic Sriracha dry wings.
These garlic Sriracha wings came out fantastic. There’s enough kick to wake you up. The garlic adds a really great almost earthy flavor. I cooled them off with just straight-up Ranch dressing for dipping.
