Best PowerXL Air Fryer Chicken Wings Recipe Seasoned With Black Pepper

What can I say? Life is busy when you are the mom of 4 kids. Even more so during the school year. We are constantly on the go. Especially after school. Sooooo many activities. From marching band to ice skating lessons to fall sports starting up… just so much to do after school!

Cooking with an air fryer really helps to get dinner on the table quicker because it cooks in half the time. Air fryers are also really great for heating frozen foods and making recipes that are healthier. Fried tasting food that isn’t really fried. Or rather just fried the healthier way. It’s a win win for everyone in the family!

Are air fryers healthier than deep fryers?

The answer is a resounding yes! Unlike the traditional cooking method of making wings in a deep fryer, an air-fried wings will attain crispy skin while being lower in fat and calories. Frying foods in oil is just so unhealthy. With air fryers machines, you get the fried taste and crunch without the high cholesterol!

I for one am always interested in healthier recipes. Particularly those that are lower in cholesterol because these days I’m trying to watch my cholesterol intake. This is primarily due to my high blood pressure issues, but it’s also just important in general to eat healthier. Most everything that is low cholesterol is also low in calories.

I love having chicken wings as an appetizer, but also a quick and easy lunch. It’s an even healthier option too if you make the wings in an air fryer. So delicious and easy to make fast. But don’t just reserve PowerXL air fryer chicken wings as an appetizer for the big game or a quick and easy lunch. These are perfect for dinner, too. No one says that you can’t make a meal out of appetizers!

What is the most popular dipping sauce?

When it comes to favorite wing sauce, most people prefer ketchup, bbq sauce and ranch dressing. Then there are the even more flavorful options like blue cheese dressing, Frank’s Red Hot sauce, honey mustard, etc. I for one say that you can never go wrong with ranch. It’s just one of those sauces that works with everything. Be it salad, chicken, beef, or even french fries, dip it in the ranch (as my kids would sing)!

Ranch dressing is particularly good with buffalo wings. It helps to calm the spicy hot side to the wings and create a delicious flavor all its own. Definitely a favorite.
