Ingredients
 1.36 kg chicken wing drumettes and flats
 3 tsp baking powder
 2 tsp kosher salt
 2 tbsp Gochujang
 2 tbsp soy sauce
 2 tsp sesame oil
 1 tsp sugar
 3 tbsp butter
For Sesame mayonnaise dipping sauce
 1 cup mayonnaise
 1 tbsp toasted sesame oil
 ¾ tsp sugar
  tsp sriracha
To Garnish
 Thinly sliced scallions
 Toasted sesame seeds

Directions
1

In a large bowl, add the wings and toss them with the baking powder and salt until evenly coated.

2

Air fry the wings: Heat the air fryer to 380 °F. Open the drawer and fit as many wings as you can in it without crowding them. For my 4.4-quart air fryer, this was 1-1/2 pounds (0.91 kg) of wings or half the batch. Close the drawer. Cook for 25 minutes, shaking the drawer every 5 minutes to shuffle the wings around.

3

Make the sauce: As the wings cook, make the sauce. In a medium bowl, whisk together the gochujang, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, sesame oil, and sugar.

4

Make the sesame mayonnaise: In a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, sesame oil, sugar, and sriracha until smooth.

5

Increase the air fryer temp: Once the wings have cooked for 25 minutes, increase the temperature of the air fryer to 400°F. Cook the wings for another 5 minutes.

6

Sauce and serve the wings: Mix the melted butter with the sauce. Add the wings to a large bowl, pour over half the sauce and toss the wings in the sauce.

7

Serve and eat: Transfer to a serving platter and sprinkle with scallions and sesame seeds, if you like. Serve immediately, accompanied by the cucumbers, radishes, and sesame mayonnaise for dipping.

Air Fryer Chicken Wings Recipe

Instructions For The Air Fryer Chicken Wings Recipe:

  • Start with a whole chicken wing and slice off the tip cut through and around the bone. That’ll give you two perfect pieces; The drumette and the flat.
  • Today, we’re using an air fryer that can still give you crispy chicken wings at a fraction of the calories and fat you get from deep-frying. Grab a can of your favorite cooking spray and prep the basket to help prevent sticking. Then, carefully place your wing sections into the basket. Be sure not to stack them you can usually fit between 10 to 12 pieces in your air fryer basket depending on the size of your wing sections.
  • Set your air fryer for 400 degrees Fahrenheit and cook for eight minutes. Now, let’s go to our food processor and make our wing sauce start with 3/4 of a cup of dark brown sugar. Add one cup of soy sauce.
Start the Timer for 80 Minutes
  • Next, add two tablespoons of minced garlic. Now add one tablespoon of rice wine vinegar. Now we add chili garlic sauce. You can substitute Sriracha for this step if that’s what you haveAdd tablespoon of chili garlic sauce. Now add one teaspoon of black pepper. Next, we want to add 1 tsp of sesame oil Ginger root.
  • You want to use a vegetable peeler to peel it back and then grate it into your mixture want about a tablespoon’s worth. We will leave you with something that looks a bit when you’re doing this process for about 30 seconds. Grab two habanero peppers. Just remove the tops and slice them in half and them to your food processor and mix for another minute until completely pureed.
  • Let’s check back on our wings, removed the basket, and rotate them so they can cook evenly put them back in the air fryer on 400 degrees Fahrenheit for another 10 minutes. Now, at the stove pour, you are into a saucepan on medium-high heat cover this up and bring your sauce to a slow boil grab your cornstarch and add one heaping tablespoon to a few tablespoons of spring water.
  • Mix this thoroughly until you have a milky-white kind of liquidWhisk this into your sauce slowly sure to keep the sauce moving as you combine itKeep whisking the sauce over medium-high heat. It will thicken your sauce up nicely if you want a thicker sauce you can add more cornstarch and water.
  • Once your sauce reaches a slow boil again, remove it from the headcover it and set it aside back at the Air fryer let’s remove the basket and check on our wingsMan, those are coming along nicely! Let’s rotate them, and let’s put them back in for another ten minutes look at how crispy they are! There you have it.
