Recipe Notes

If you prefer more crispy wings, don’t add the sauce to the air fryer. Instead, leave the wings in until they are the desired crispiness. Once done, remove them, and toss them in the bowl of sauce. This creates more of a crispy wing coated in sauce, rather than a juicy wing that has absorbed some of the sauce.
