      Let’s look at the main ingredients: 

      • Chicken wings (skin on)
      • Avocado oil 
      • Spices

      Avocado oil and spices are natural ingredients, each with their own list of health benefits. 

      But what about the chicken wings? And the chicken skin? Aren’t they both fatty and unhealthy?

      Neutral Eating has a practical stance on dark meat chicken and chicken skin:

      If you’re going to eat meat, make full use of the animal. Eating the whole animal is sustainable, nutritious, and humane.

      Both dark meat and chicken skin are rich sources of vitamins, minerals, protein, and natural fat energy. And the stuff is delicious. Doing right by the animal means you get to eat it all. Enjoy the dark meat. Enjoy the skin! Learn more about the Neutral Eating Food Philosophy here.

      Air Fryer Crispy Chicken Wings Tips

      Air Fryer Chicken Wings

      1. Use a meat thermometer

      Place a meat thermometer in the air fryer after 10 minutes of cooking, and continue to air fry for another 8 minutes or until the thermometer reads 165 F. This ensures your wings are fully cooked and safe to eat. 

      2. Want a different flavor? 

      Feel free to mix and match any seasonings you have on hand. For instance, chili powder, cumin, mustard powder, cayenne, and oregano all make great additions to the spices used. 

      3. Serve with sauce

      They taste great plain, but we love to serve our chicken wings with a sugar-free dipping sauce like Ranch, Primal Kitchen buffalo sauce, or Primal Kitchen barbecue sauce

      4. Got leftovers? 

      Transfer leftover wings to an airtight container where they can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 4 days or in the freezer for up to 4 months. Then, when you’re ready to eat, warm them in the air fryer for a few minutes until they’re heated through.
