Make chicken marinade. In a big bowl or large zip lock bag, combine cayenne pepper, garlic powder, ground pepper, white vinegar, soy sauce, lime juice, dried oregano and salt.
Add chicken wings in marinade and marinate for 4 hours or overnight in the refrigerator. Cover bowl with foil. After a few hours, toss chicken around.
Set air fryer at 400 degrees F, preheat and cook chicken wings for 20–25 minutes. Depending on the model of air fryer, cooking time can vary slightly.Note: Before placing chicken, spray the air fry basket with oil. Also, discard marinade.
Turn chicken wings halfway through cooking to brown and cook evenly.
Serve with your favorite sides. Enjoy!
Soy sauce is salty so depending on your taste, you can add or omit the salt.
Serve hot sauce, if desired.
I have a Gourmia and the suggested cooking time for 1 pound (12 pieces drummettes or flats) is 20–25 minutes.
Chicken juice is release when cooking and it is very tasty as dip or poured over rice. If you like to save it, place chicken wings in a foil for the 1st 10 minutes then spray the air fryer basket lightly with oil and transfer the wings to continue cooking. At the same time, gather the top of foil, close it and place in the corner of air fryer so juice can continue cooking too. With foil, cooking time was 25 – 26 minutes.Not using a foil, it was done in 23 minutes.
If your air fryer is small, do not overcrowd chicken and cook in batches. Air needs to circulate to cook chicken evenly.
Store leftovers in an airtight container up to 3 days in the refrigerator and reheat in air fryer at 300 degrees F for 3-10 minutes depending on the amount.
