Trust me, you will want to make these honey garlic chicken wings again and again.

You can serve this chicken with rice, noodles, or a salad, or use it as an appetizer for a party. 

In the air fryer, the chicken gets a crispy exterior while staying juicy on the inside. It’s also healthier than deep-frying, so this is an excellent way to make a healthy, delicious meal.

You don’t have to use chicken wings

You can also make this recipe with chicken thighs, drumsticks or even with veggies like broccoli or cauliflower. 

There is a bit of heat in this recipe, the cayenne powder will give it some kick, but if you don’t like spicy food, you can always reduce or eliminate it.

If you would like, you can also experiment with the sauce by adding more or less honey or sriracha, or even sesame oil, ginger, or hoisin sauce.

Don’t be afraid to experiment and make it your own.
