Questions and Answers about Air Fryer Old Bay Chicken Wings Recipe

Can you put raw wings in an air fryer?

Yes, you can do it. Place the wings in the fryer basket, so they are not touching (if necessary to fit, line up the drumettes standing upright along the sides). Set the air fryer to 360 degrees F and cook for 12 minutes, then flip the wings with tongs and cook for 12 minutes more.

Can you put Old Bay on chicken?

Old bay seasoning is extremely versatile and goes with everything. We adore it with shrimp for shrimp scampi, and it’s also great in a shrimp boil. It’s not just for seafood; the old bay spice is also wonderful on poultry!

Can you put foil in an air fryer?

To make cleanup easier, line your air fryer with foil or parchment paper. However, parchment paper is most likely a superior choice. Some acidic foods, such as tomatoes and citrus fruits, should not be air-fried using foil.
