Don't Deep Fry Wings Again

Welcome to the Sunday Scaries Fall Recipe Series where I highlight fall-inspired recipes that are simple, healthy, and delicious.

These buffalo wings are made in the air fryer (without oil) and are delicious even without the sauce. I served them with carrots, celery, cucumber, and ranch. They pair perfectly with a rainy football Sunday! 🍂🏈🍗

Make buffalo sauce

  • Combine Franks hot sauce, butter, white vinegar, and garlic powder in a saucepan on the stove on medium heat.

  • I recommend playing with the proportions of the sauce to your taste preference. The recipes I looked up recommended more butter but I didn't feel it needed any more.


  • Remove chicken wings from the air fryer, enjoy plain, or slather in sauce.

  • Enjoy!

Enjoy this delicious fall meal or snack!
