Buffalo chicken wings are a game-day classic, but you can eat them anytime you have a craving for them. Even though Air Fryer Buffalo Chicken Wings will be coated in a flavorful, buttery, spicy Buffalo sauce, we coated the chicken wings with salt, pepper onion powder, garlic powder, and paprika to enhance their flavor even more. In addition, we cooked them in the air fryer rather than submerging the wings in hot oil. As a result, the air-fryer crisped the wings beautifully. You may also try other flavor like the Air Fryer Lemon Pepper Wings.
These Air Fryer Buffalo Chicken Wings are the perfect keto recipe for game day.
