My weekend really starts when I have been at the poulterer. I dare say I like everything that is in the store. I come there every Saturday and usually get the usual stuff. Or usual for me anyway. It consists of Chinese chicken strips and grilled sausage. We call it ”Grilworst” in the Netherlands. A few times I saw something that had caught my attention every time. I hadn’t bought it, but this weekend I couldn’t ignore it: Chicken Wings. In this article, we’ll take a closer look at how to make Air Fryer Chicken Wings.
What is the definition of Air Fryer Chicken Wings
The meaning of air fryer chicken wings is:
”Chicken wings that are made within the Air Fryer to get a nice crispy skin with an amazing glaze. You need a couple of ingredients and an air fryer”
Air Fryer Chicken Wings
I have to be honest with you guys, I really was an Air Fryer hater. A few years ago, this device became increasingly popular and especially now it seems as if everyone has it at home. I didn’t want to get started because I didn’t know what to do with it exactly. My girlfriend used it at home to make sandwiches, for ”bitterballen” and pizzas. I had the usual argument that you can also prepare bread and pizzas in an oven. And when you want to fry something, you need a deep fryer and not something with warm air.
During the years I discovered more and more that you can actually do a lot with this device. Chicken Wings are an example of this, but also sweet potato and salmon can you bake in the air fryer. What I have to say quickly is that you often have recipes with the air fryer that indicate that you must have a temperature of 200 degrees celcius. It is possible that the air fryer will smoke at this temperature. Therefore I always make sure that I set it to 180 degrees celcius and then bake it a few minutes longer. It is important that you ensure that the air fryer is always properly preheated, just with an oven. Depending of course if it is indicated in the recipe.
