How To Make Air Fryer Chipotle-Lime Sticky Wings
In a large mixing bowl, mix the chipotle sauce, lime juice, lime zest, water, salt, and pepper.
Place the chicken wings in the marinade, and coat them. Then place the chicken wings into the air fryer basket. Set the temperature for 380 degrees F, air fryer setting, for 12 minutes, after 12 minutes, using tongs to flip the chicken wings.
Then increase the temperature to 400 degrees F, for another 5 minutes.
What To Serve With Air Fryer Chicken Wings?
The best thing about this recipe is that it goes with anything, from a simple garden salad to a bowl of pasta salad, or you can even eat them alone.
This is so good, alongside my Instant Pot Homemade Macaroni & Cheese.
Can I bake Chicken Wings?
Yes, although they will take much longer. There is nothing wrong with making these in the oven. I often make a batch if I have a large party since the oven can handle more wings than my air fryer.
To bake in the oven, place them into a preheated oven and bake for about 45 minutes, flipping about halfway during the cooking process. Remember to baste your wings while they are cooking!
