The 3 Best At-home Wing Recipes

Food, Uncategorized

I couldn’t let National Chicken Wing pass without sharing with you one of my recent loves. A bright spot of 2020 (Lord knows we need to find them right now) is that I acquired a love for bone-in chicken wings. I’ve always been a boneless kinda girl myself – and let’s be honest, they’re basically just nuggets for grown-ups – but I learned to love bone-in chicken wings during my January Whole30 and I haven’t looked back since.

In honor of National Chicken Wing day, one of my new favorite pointless holidays, I’m sharing three ways to make chicken wings that will leave you feeling better than b-dubs with a smaller bill, fewer calories, and allll the satisfaction.

For these recipes you can use an air fryer like this or simply bake it in the oven using a sheet pan and rack like this. We love the air fryer version and we’ve been spoiled using my Mother-in-law’s air fryer since moving to Indiana. I think it is definitely a purchase happening in the near future!

Lemon Garlic Parmesan Wings

Ingredients:

  • Before baking/airfrying
    • 1 pound bone-in wingettes and drumettes
    • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
    • 1 Tablespoon avocado oil
    • 1/2 Tablespoon lemon juice
    • 1/8 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • After cooking:
    • 3 Tablespoons ghee, melted (butter is fine if you prefer)
    • 2 garlic cloves, minced
    • zest of one lemon
    • salt and pepper to taste
    • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese

Procedure:

  1. In a medium bowl mix garlic powder, salt, pepper, avocado oil, lemon juice, and parmesan cheese until well combined.
  2. Individually dip the raw wings into the mixture until each wing is coated evenly.
  3. If using the air fryer, set the temperature to 380 degrees Fahrenheit for 25 minutes and turn when necessary. (Please note: we used the Instant Pot Air Fryer – be sure to check settings for your air fryer if it is a different brand as settings may vary.) If baking on the sheet in the oven, place coated wings on the rack before placing in a 400 degree fahrenheit oven for 30-35 minutes.
  4. While wings are cooking, mix melted ghee, minced garlic, lemon zest, salt, pepper, and reserved parmesan cheese in a medium bowl.
  5. Regardless of cooking method, be sure to cook until the wings reach 165 degrees fahrenheit internal temperature for food safety!
  6. Coat the cooked wings with the lemony parmesan glaze and allow to cool before eating.

Classic Buffalo Wings

Ingredients

Procedure

  1. 3-24 hours before cooking wings, toss to coat in about half the bottle of the Buffalo Wing Sauce (we buy this by the jug because it’s so good to add to almost everything!)
  2. If using the air fryer, set the temperature to 380 degrees Fahrenheit for 25 minutes and turn when necessary. (Please note: we used the Instant Pot Air Fryer – be sure to check settings for your air fryer if it is a different brand as settings may vary.) If baking on the sheet in the oven, place coated wings on the rack before placing in a 400 degree fahrenheit oven for 30-35 minutes.
  3. Regardless of cooking method, be sure to cook until the wings reach 165 degrees fahrenheit internal temperature for food safety!
  4. Coat the cooked wings in the remaining buffalo wing sauce and allow to cool before serving. I love to serve these with a bit of ranch or bleu cheese dressing. My favorite dairy free option is this Tessemae’s Ranch!
