Air Fryer Parmesan Wings

When I learned how to use my air fryer I think I found my new favorite kitchen appliance. It makes things perfectly crispy without any mess! I love crispy chicken wings.

I used to think the only ways to make really crispy wings was either in the oven – which took way too long – or on the stove – which was messy. 

Turns out, coating the chicken wings with parmesan cheese makes them extra crispy in the air fryer. No mess and cooks in just 25 minutes. Awesome! 

Low-Carb Chicken Wings

Since these chicken wings don’t have a breading on the outside, they are delightfully low-carb.

I added garlic to the parmesan cheese and they are mild enough for my kids to enjoy. 

If you want, sprinkle some red pepper flakes in the coating. This will give your wings some amazing heat! 

Keto-Friendly Appetizer Ideas

Chicken wings are one of my favorite keto-friendly appetizer ideas too. They are perfect for game day parties or when friends all come over to hang out.

When it comes to guests and parties, I struggle with what to cook that everyone will like (without me having to cave and eat too many carbs). These chicken wings are a crowd-pleaser! No one even knows they are keto. 

What To Serve With My Low-Carb Garlic Parmesan Chicken Wings Recipe 

If you want to serve these wings as a complete meal, just add some veggies or a side salad with them.

I prefer the staple raw veggies that you’d get at other wing places (like Buffalo Wild Wings). I serve carrot sticks, celery, and even some raw broccoli on the side for a filling dinner. 

 

How To Prep Ahead and Store 

The air fryer cuts your cook time down. If you want to prep ahead and cut your cooking time down even more, here’s how to do it. 

Honestly, the only steps in this recipe is to coat the chicken wings in the spices and oil and then cook them in the air fryer.

The only step that you can change to cut down on the cooking time is to thaw the frozen wings. This will save you about 5 minutes of cooking time. 

If you have any leftovers, store them in a sealed container in the refrigerator. They will stay fresh for about 3 days.
