While I’ve been the recipient of many airfryers (brands send them to me), I sparingly use them. Why? I cook for 5 people and the size of the standard airfryer is not as accommodating, unless you cook in batches. However the new stove I purchased a few months back (DON’T BUY Samsung stoves) has an airfryer feature (essentially a wire basket, with the convection setting on) which allows for cooking larger amounts.
1 lemon (juice)
3 pounds chicken wings (trimmed)
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 1/2 tablespoon Bone Sucking Sauce (powder)
Notes. In my culture we wash our meats, but if that’s not your thing you can skip that step. To keep things simple I used a prepacked rub. You may make your own or use a brand you like. I am not affiliated with the brand I used.
Trim and wash the chicken wings with cool water and the lemon or lime juice. Then pat the chicken wings dry with paper towels and season with the salt and the Bone Sucking rub on both sides.
I set my airfryer to 380 F and gave the wire rack a coat of baking spray (oil) to prevent sticking and to assist clean-up after. Try to leave some space between each wing, so there’s airflow – better even cooking.
Just before I placed the seasoned chicken wings in the airfryer I gave the top of the wings a quick spay of the baking spray (optional).
After 20 minutes, I flipped the wings to the other side and put them back into the airfryer, but at 400 F.
Depending on how big the chicken wings are that you used, it will take another 10-15 minutes. You’re looking for a golden colour with a bit of charring on the edges.
If you’re interested in the sauce I served these with – Amazing Avocado Garlic Sauce (for wings and fries).
Now you’re probably wondering why I mentioned to not get a Samsung Stove. The list of reasons is long, but in keeping with the airfryer feature – the entire oven gets to be a MESS. The grease splatter is not only throughout the oven, it’s caked on at the bottom of the oven and door. A $3000 + stove/oven that’s stained only after the first use. Stupes! Let me know if you’re interested in a full review video on the Samsung Dual Oven With Airfryer in the comments below.
I know this is not your typical Caribbean recipe, but with all the requests I’ve been getting for Slow Cooker and Airfryer recipes, I thought I’d share. Plus.. who doesn’t like a good crispy yet juicy Chicken Wing?
