    • Place the seasoned chicken wings on the grill & close the lid.

    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.
