  • Air Fryer (but you can also use an oven)


  • 2 1/2 lb party chicken wing dings they should be disjointed with tips removed
  • salt and pepper
  • 8 tsp jerk seasoning up to 9 tsp but this is really to your taste
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • Cooking spray
  • 2 tbsp salted butter
  • 5 garlic cloves minced
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 1/2 tsp tamari
  • 1/4 tsp gluten free hot sauce
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger or fresh grated ginger if desired
  • 1/8 tsp smoked paprika


  • In a large bowl, pat dry chicken wings with a paper towel then season with salt and pepper then with jerk seasoning and baking powder and toss them in it until well combined.
  • Set your air fryer temperature to 400 degrees. Spray rack using a cooking oil spray and arrange chicken wings evenly on the rack.  Make sure you don’t overcrowd the wings so they can cook evenly.
  • Allow wings to cook for 15-17 mins making sure to flip halfway.  They should be pretty much done.
  • As chicken cooks, add butter and minced garlic to a pot over medium heat and cook until butter melts and garlic becomes fragrant. 
  • Stir in honey, tamari, hot sauce, ginger and paprika and allow to simmer for 3-4 minutes then remove from heat.
  • Once wings are done cooking and are completely crispy, add wings to the sauce and coat evenly or brush the sauce then add to the air fryer again for 8 minutes then serve.




Yes! Keep in mind, it takes significantly longer to achieve crispy chicken wings in the oven. To bake these chicken wings in a conventional oven, preheat the oven to 400 degrees, and bake until crispy. Flip the wings over halfway through cooking. 
TIP: Elevate the wings by cooking them on a wire rack on top of a parchment paper-lined pan.
