‘Fried’ Salt & Vinegar Wings

Who doesn’t like crispy golden chicken wings? And who can pass up the great taste of salt and vinegar? Combine these two favorites and you have a mouth-watering wing with just the right amount of zing! The only way these can get any better is cooking them in your air fryer. Not only are you saving time, you are avoiding the mess of deep frying. In just under 30 minutes you can go from frozen to golden!


  • Frozen Chicken Wings – I made one dozen which fit perfectly in 2 layers.
  • Salt &Vinegar Seasoning – you can purchase this Salt & Vinegar Buffalo Wing Dust. Alternatively, you can make your own using sea salt and this vinegar powder from Amazon.


  1. Place two layers of chicken wings and drums in air fryer basket using a rack accessory for the second layer. Need an Air Fryer? I just bought this Cozyna 3.7L fryer and love it!!
  2. Cook for 10 minutes at a 300 degrees to defrost the wings.
  3. Remove wings from fryer with tongs and toss in a bowl with the with the Salt & Vinegar seasoning or your favorite seasonings. Alternatively, you can lay them out on a cutting board and season them.
  4. Place the wings back in the air fryer, placing the drums on top rack and the smaller wings on the bottom.
  5. Cook for 7 to 10 minutes more at 350 degrees.
  6. Rearrange wings and place the less cooked wings on top if needed. Cook for another 5 minutes or so.
  7. Check wings one last time, and if needed, crank that fryer up to 400 and cook for 2 – 3 more minutes to achieve the final golden crispness.
  8. If desired, toss with your favorite wing sauce and serve.

The trick to a perfect wing, no matter the recipe, is to just keep checking the wings to see if they are the desired crispness you want. Enjoy!
