  • Air Fryer


  • your favorite brand of lemon-pepper seasoning season to taste
  • 2 lbs fresh chicken wings
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil *or olive oil cooking spray for newer model air fryers


  • In a large bowl, generously toss wings with lemon pepper to coat (the amount is up to you...we like a lot of seasoning).  
  • For The Actifry:
  • Place wings in the air fryer with the tablespoon of oil and cook for 30-40 minutes (the Actifry cookbook says 25-30, but that wasn't at all done enough for us...we like the skin crispy!)  
  • For Newer Model Air Fryers (always check your appliance for recommended cooking instructions since they do vary):
  • Spray wings with olive oil cooking spray (you can also brush the oil on the wings with a pastry brush) and toss with lemon pepper to coat.
  • Place wings in the air fryer basket, leaving space in between the wings to circulate air.
  • Cook at 400 degrees F. for 20-25 minutes.


  • Don't have an air fryer?  No worries, you can make these wings in the oven.  Just toss wings in olive oil and sprinkle generously with lemon pepper.  Bake at 425 degrees F for 30 minutes, turn and cook 15 minutes more until crispy. Serve and enjoy.
