  • 1 pound chicken wings
  • 3 Tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 ½ teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • Cooking spray
  • ¼ cup barbeque sauce
  • 3 Tablespoons honey
  • 2 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon orange juice
  • 1 Tablespoon ketchup
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • Chopped parsley optional garnish


  • Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and pat dry all the chicken wings with a paper towel.
  • Stir together the cornstarch, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper in a large, shallow bowl.
  • Toss the chicken into the seasoning mixture and coat thoroughly. Rub seasonings in to make sure they stick to the chicken. After the wings are well covered in seasonings, coat the wings with cooking spray.
  • Place wings in the air fryer and cook for 9 minutes on each side. Do not overcrowd the air fryer. Make sure the chicken’s internal temperature is 165 degrees Fahrenheit before it comes out of the air fryer.
  • While the wings are cooking, bring the barbeque sauce, honey, brown sugar, orange juice, ketchup, and soy sauce to a simmer in a medium sized saucepan. Simmer for 3-5 minutes or until thickened. Remove from heat and set aside for now.
  • As soon as the chicken comes out of the air fryer, toss it in the waiting honey barbeque sauce until coated.
  • Serve warm with chopped parsley as a garnish, optional.
