Kinder’s Lemon Pepper Dry Wings

I admit, there was a time when me and lemon pepper were not pals. Seemed like every time I picked up a bottle of seasoning it was either too lemony or too peppery. There was no good balance for me. Well that all changed with Kinder’s lemon pepper dry wings. You know it’s good if I use it for dry wings. There’s no hiding with dry wings. You gotta bring flavor. You’re not going to hide behind a sauce. You have to bring it. And this seasoning brings it with that perfect balance, bite after bite.

Kinder's Lemon Pepper Dry Wings

I keep my dry wings simple. That’s what dry wings are supposed to be. I usually cook them in my air fryer. Then I hit them with the seasoning. And lots of it. And I let it rest for a few minutes. Then I get to eatin’! Kinder’s lemon pepper dry wings are the perfect snack or lunch. Nice clean flavor, and great wings!

Fricker’s Hot Wings

Balance. That’s what I want in a hot Buffalo wing sauce. I don’t want too much vinegar, or butter, or cayenne or whatever else might be in there. I want to taste every ingredient without just one burying the rest. Balance is exactly what you’ll find in Fricker’s Hot Wings. I picked up a bottle of their hot Buffalo-inspired sauce last time I was in a restaurant. As soon as I got home, I made a quick batch of air fryer wings and proceeded to toss them in the sauce. And in no time, they were gone!

Fricker's Hot Wings

I really like the heat level and taste of Fricker’s hot wings. When a bottle says ‘hot’ I want some heat, but I don’t want to be on my knees begging for the pain to stop, either. This sauce has just the right spiciness for me. And I really, really love the flavor. It’s a very ‘pleasant’ sauce, one that makes me happy again and again.

You can order Fricker’s sauces online too.

Kinder’s Roasted Garlic BBQ Wings

Oh my goodness. Now, I’ve had my share of BBQ sauces. I’ve made my share of them too. And I love them on everything from smoked ribs to grilled burgers to yep, wings. These Kinder’s Roasted Garlic BBQ wings are crazy good. This sauce is easily one of the best I’ve ever had. It has just the right amount of garlic flavor. A hint of sweetness but it’s not cloyingly sweet. It’s got the perfect thickness to stick to wings but it’s not gloppy. I cannot get enough of this sauce on wings and I cannot wait to try it on all things grilled, too!

Kinder’s Roasted Garlic BBQ Wings

Kinder’s Roasted Garlic BBQ wings are a great wing to serve when you want to make everyone super happy at your next party. Sure, put out a good-sized platter of traditional Buffalo wings. You have to. But next to it put a big batch of these BBQ-sauced wings. Then sit back and watch them disappear. This is a great sauce.

5 Salt 5 Pepper Air Fryer Dry Wings

Oh, me. These 5 Salt and 5 Pepper air fryer dry wings are why I am such a big fan of un-sauced wings. Sure, you can make these and still sauce them. And you should. But do yourself a favor and try them dry. They’ll make a believer out of you.

Packed with flavor

The 5 Salt and 5 Pepper seasoning from Kroger is packed with flavor. So, you ask yourself, really? Are there really 5 different kinds of salt and 5 different kinds of pepper in it? Yes! Here’s proof. The salts: sea, pink Himalayan, Cypress white, French grey, and fleur de sel. The peppers: cayenne, chili, black, red and green bell. All combine for a decidedly different taste that hits every part of your tongue. And makes it tingle!

5 Salt 5 Pepper Air Fryer Dry Wings

Be heavy-handed!

Do not be shy with the seasoning when it comes time to make your 5 Salt 5 Pepper Air Fryer Dry Wings. Seasoning them good and let them dry brine in the fridge for 30 minutes before cooking them. That’ll help get some of fantastic salty pepperiness deep inside, making each bite completely incredible. Afterward, season them even more after they’re cooked up crispy hot.

5 Salt 5 Pepper Air Fryer Dry Wings

Delicious salty peppery wings!
Prep Time5 minutes
Cook Time30 minutes
Course: Appetizer
Cuisine: American
Keyword: air fryer, wings
Servings: 1
Calories: 13kcal

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Season the wings with the 5 Salt and 5 Pepper seasoning. Do not be shy with it. Toss to get the seasoning coated evenly on all sides.
  • Place wings in fridge for 30 minutes.
  • Lightly spray the basket of your air fryer with non-stick spray. Preheat per manufacturer's recommendation to 350 F.
  • Add the wings to the basket (be careful it's hot!).
  • Cook wings for 12 minutes.
  • Flip the wings and cook another 12 minutes.
  • Increase the air fryer temperature to 400 F and cook another 6 minutes.
  • Remove wings from fryer and place in a bowl. Toss with more seasoning, to taste.
  • Let cool slightly (the wings will crisp as they cool) then serve.

Notes

Note: If your barbecue sauce is refrigerated, set it out on the countertop before starting the wings so that it warms up a bit. You don’t want to put cold sauce on hot wings.
Note: The full 30 minute cook time is for large, meaty wings. If your wings are a bit thinner (er… scrawny) back the times down to 10/10/4 minutes instead of 12/12/6 minutes.

Rub Your Chicken Buffalo Wings

“Tame.” That’s the first word that came to mind after my first bites of some Rub Your Chicken Buffalo wings. After my last two super-hot Buffalo wing sauces, “tame” was a welcomed thing. Great traditional flavor, buttery and just slightly spicy, this is a great sauce for those desiring the classic without being overwhelmed. The amount of vinegar is spot on. Again, tame is the best way to describe it.

Rub Your Chicken Buffalo Wings

Rub Your Chicken Buffalo wings sauce (from BBQ Spot) isn’t just for wings. It’s a great dipping sauce for nuggets, too. Anywhere you want great Buffalo flavor without being overwhelmed, you’ll want this sauce. That’s also why it makes for a great marinade, specially for chicken breasts. A few hours in the sauce then onto the grill. In no time you’ve got great chicken packed with flavor.

Simple Truth Organic Medium Buffalo Wings

I’m sorry. I tried. I really tried. But I just could not make these Simple Truth Organic Medium Buffalo wings work for me. I’m a nice guy. I gave them a chance. I made them two days in a room, two different ways, to make sure that it wasn’t me. Maybe I had a cold, I thought. Maybe the humidity was affecting my taste buds. But no, they still lacked something. The sauce starts out making me think that it’s a thin French salad dressing, with only a bit of flavor. Then there is heat next, and it’s good. I like the heat level I have to say. And there’s a little more flavor at that point. I just can’t get past that early… meh.

Simple Truth Organic Medium Buffalo Wings

Now, don’t let these Simple Truth Organic Medium Buffalo wings stop you from trying other flavors in this line of ‘clean’ sauces from Kroger. I’ve had great success and a lot of great batches of wings tossed in the other flavors. I just wanted happy with this one. But you know, we’re all different, and maybe (just maybe) you’ll like it! Let me know if you do! Or don’t.

Wing-Time Honey Bourbon Wings

The sauces from Wing-Time are crazy good. Their Buffalo-inspired versions are insanely flavorful and come in spice levels from mild to hot. The Wing-Time Honey Bourbon wings sauce is equally fantastic. It’s a traditional Buffalo sauce at heart. They added some honey to give it some sweetness. Delicious. Then just enough bourbon so you go ‘wow’. I was thinking that maybe I wouldn’t like a bourbon-infused sauce and boy was I ever proven wrong. This is great stuff right here, and it made for some of the best wings I’ve had!

Wing-Time Honey Bourbon Wings

I would recommend that if you find any bottles of Wing-Time Honey Bourbon Wings sauces, grab them. No matter what happens, you’ll still get to enjoy some fantastic wings.

I couldn’t find any contact info for Wing-Time online. Their website is gone. Their Facebook page is inactive. Fortunately, though, the manufacturer of their sauces, Allied Old English, is still around (but didn’t respond to a DM on FB). I sure hope this means that their sauces will still be available online and in stores.

Market District Creamy Garlic Parmesan and Chili Wings

“Decidedly different”. I don’t even usually words like that. I don’t know where they even came from, but they were the first words out of my mouth when I tried some Market District Creamy Garlic Parmesan and Chili wings.

Definitely different

Admittedly, I was expecting the usual garlicky Parmesan wing sauce that borders on being a salad dressing. That’s not what I got. I got a whole heck of a lot more. This is easily one of my favorite non-Buffalo wing sauces of all time. The garlic and Parmesan are tame, not overwhelming. The sauce has just the right consistency. Not too thick. Not too thin. And a little fantastic pepper flavor. Thank you Market District!

Market District Creamy Garlic Parmesan and Chili Wings

This is not an Alabama BBQ sauce

I’d eat these Market District creamy garlic Parmesan and chili wings all day long. I really love the addiction of a red pepper to this sauce. It so makes it different than the usual creamy white wing sauces. This sauce stands above the crowd. Way above it.

This is not an Alabama white sauce, despite appearances to the contrary!

Frank’s RedHot Stingin’ Honey Garlic Dry Wings

Frank’s RedHot Stingin’ Honey Garlic Dry Wings absolutely hit the spot. These are what dry wings are meant to be. Of course, you can use the seasoning on any wings, sauced or dried, but I highly recommend you try them dry first. You’ll get wonderful garlic flavor and lots of it. There’s not hunting for garlic here. Along comes just a little sweetness. Not a lot. And just the right amount of spicy tingle. Again, not a lot, but you’ll notice. Skip the dipping sauce, these dry wings are perfect without the need for anything else.

Frank's RedHot Stingin' Honey Garlic Dry Wings

I am not shy with the seasoning when it comes time to make my Frank’s RedHot Stingin’ Honey Garlic Dry Wings. Hot out of the fryer (or oven, or off the grill, it doesn’t matter!), into a bowl, and it’s time to get to seasoning. A few good shakes all over, and give the wings a good toss. Then, usually, some more seasoning and another toss! Time to eat!

Working at Frank’s RedHot has to be a dream job!

Louisiana Brand The Original Wings

I’ve been a card-carrying member of the Louisiana-Brand hot sauce lover’s club for a long time. I love the flavor and I love the heat level. It’s just a great sauce. That’s why when I saw an ad for their new wing sauce pop up on my Facebook feed, I jumped all over it. I didn’t hesitate. What if they sold out? What if I have to wait months? Fear and passion drove me to order a few bottles. And oh boy. Louisiana Brand The Original wings sauce is gooooood! Just like the hot sauce, great flavor, great heat.

Louisiana Brand The Original Wings

I would call the heat level of Louisiana Brand The Original Wings sauce to be fairly middle-of-the-road spicy. Not too spicy, but noticeable. The heat does not drown out the fantastic pepper flavors, and that’s a major win in my book. This is what a proper wing sauce should be.
