TIPS & TRICKS FOR THE BEST SALT AND PEPPER CHICKEN WINGS
double cook the wings: if you’re making this chicken in large batches. feel free to do the first cook in the oven to conserve space and save time. since you need the high-temperature cooking is done in the second phase.
work in batches: don’t overfill the basket whether your air frying or deep frying make sure everything has enough space to cook. when you make them in the oven make sure they are in an even layer on a baking rake to separate the fat from the chicken.
don’t overcook the chicken the first time. it can be hard to keep together. if you find yourself overcooking the chicken in the first round. go ahead and leave them on the pan and let them cool before you transfer them into the air fryer.
course s & p: since salt and pepper are the main things here. make sure it shows. use a course of ground peppercorn and a flaked sea salt to help add a pop of flavor in each bite
fry the garlic: the garlic needs to be infused into the butter. so add it in when the pan is heating with the garlic. move it continuously into around the pan to brown. reduce the heat once it’s brown so it can it in the butter
butter: use the good butter for this recipe. like a whipped or golden. it changes everything.
