Air Fried Chicken BBQ wings & Potato Wedges

 Air Fried Chicken BBQ wings & Potato Wedges

I so love my food crispy and hot, and imagine to achieve the results with little to no oil, well, this chicken BBQ wings was air fried and so  are the potato wedges, so crispy.. Love love love the results! Few days back, the brand NinjaKitchen had send me their airfryer and oh boy am I amazed by the results?!

I used a tad bit of baking powder to keep the wings extra crisp. Some tips to keep in mind when you air fry:

Dab the chicken wings dry using a kitchen towel, this helps to crispen the wimgs better

Make sure you pre heat your air fryer before placing the wings.

Do not over crowd your air fryer pan, this way all the wings get cooked evenly.

You can use a parchment paper for easy cleanup, but the undersides might get soggy as the parchment paper does not allow drainage of fat/oil etc.

Make sure not to place your parchment paper while preheating your air fryer.

I used home made BBQ sauce, you may use store bought BBQ sauce or any of your favorite sauce to coat the air fried chicken wings. I will briefly put down the recipe of the BBQ sauce in this post.
