These healthy air fryer buffalo wings are incredibly crispy and so easy to make. This recipe is only four ingredients!


For the Chicken Wings: 

  • 2-3 lbs. of chicken wingettes*
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp. salt

For the Buffalo Sauce: 

  • 1/2 cup buffalo sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. plain Greek yogurt


  1. Pre-heat Air Fryer: Make sure the air fryer is preheated at 390 degrees for at least 3 minutes prior to cooking the wings. This ensures maximum crispiness! 
  2. Prep Wings: Lay the wings out on paper towels and pat them dry. The drier the wings, the crispier they’ll be! Put the wings in a medium bowl. Sprinkle the salt over the wings and add the olive oil. Using your hands, toss the wings until they’re coated with the olive oil.
  3. Air Fry: Air fry the wings at 390 degrees for 24-26 minutes flipping the wings halfway through.
  4. Make Sauce: While the wings are cooking, in a small bowl whisk together the buffalo sauce and plain Greek yogurt. That’s it!  
  5. Toss is Sauce: Once the wings are done cooking, put them in a medium bowl** and toss them in the sauce until coated. 
  6. Enjoy!: Serve with healthy homemade ranch and enjoy!


*Wings are the entire chicken wing. Wingettes are chicken wings cut into individual pieces/drummies. Aim to buy wingettes at the store unless you are comfortable cutting full chicken wings into pieces. 

**If you reusing the same bowl from step 2 in step 5, make sure it is clean to avoid cross contamination.
