These air fryer old bay chicken wings are so addicting. Seasoned to perfection, an easy quick lunch or dinner, and a huge hit for a game day appetizer.
Don’t you love air fryer recipes? Chicken wings come out so crispy and flavorful without any oil or marinating time, and in half the amount of time it would take in the oven.
What is an air fryer?
It cooks food by circulating the hot air all around. The air fryer means less fat and a lot more crunch! And it cooks up in a fraction of the time!
What is Old Bay seasoning?
It’s a blend of delicious spices like paprika, black pepper, cayenne, cinnamon, ginger, and a handful of other spices. It’s fantastic on chicken, seafood, or even French fries. It’s in the spice section of your local grocery store or you can get it here on Amazon.
Tips for making air fryer old bay chicken wings
- Place chicken wings in a single layer in the basket or use a double layer rack to pile more in.
- Shake the basket or flip the wings after 15 minutes to allow them to brown evenly.
- If you’re making a double batch Preheat your oven to 250 degrees to keep the cooked wings warm while making the other half.
Can I make these wings in the oven?
Yes of course, but it will take a lot longer. Bake in a preheated 400-degree oven for 45-55 minutes flipping halfway through. My Garlic Parmesan Chicken Wings, Spicy Ranch Baked Chicken Wings, Spicy Teriyaki Chicken Wings are made in the oven.

I buy the bag of frozen chicken wings from Costco and they are pretty fat. If your wings are on the thinner side check them after 20-25 minutes for doneness.
