  • 4-5 lbs chicken wings
  • 2 tbsp granulated garlic
  • 2 tbsp season salt
  • 2 tbsp pepper
  • *Optional BBQ sauce or hot sauce of choice & ranch dressing for dipping


  • Preheat the grill to high heat (400 degrees or so).
  • Remove the chicken from packaging & place it on a baking sheet.
  • Combine the seasonings in a small bowl & sprinkle liberally over all sides of the chicken.
  • Once the grill is hot, place the chicken on & allow it to sear for 60 seconds on each side.
  • Turn down the heat to medium & continue cooking until the juices run clear (7-8 minutes each side).
  • If you want them coated in sauce- just put them in a bowl, add a little sauce & toss.


To make in the air fryer - reduce the recipe by 50-75% depending on the size of your air fryer or work in batches. Be sure to spray the coated wings with oil before cooking. Cook the wings at 380 degrees for 24 minutes - flip halfway through. Then increase the temp to 400 degrees and cook for another 6-8 minutes or until golden brown.
