I love fried chicken, I think it’s one of my top foods ever. Especially when we’re talking about Korean fried chicken. However, the only way I’m getting them is if I make them myself (or travel to Korea) and for that, I have to get the thermometer out and use copious ammount of oil. Not something I love and sometimes I just want an easy life.⁣

I tried the baking powder wings in the oven trick and while they were good, they weren’t quite crispy enough for my liking.⁣
Now, I’ve bought an air fryer a couple of months ago and I’ve used it almost daily. ⁣
It’s a faster oven that makes everything crispier! Not even mentioning the health reasons because that’s not why I got it haha.⁣

Anyway, I tried the baking powder wings in the air fryer and omg, if you want an almost fried chicken vibe, this is the way to go! ⁣
I tossed the wings in my favourite soy, garlic and maple syrup sauce.⁣

Recipe for 2⁣

8 whole wings, cut in half, tips removed⁣
2 TBS baking powder (not soda!)⁣
1 tsp garlic powder ⁣
1 tsp onion salt⁣
1 tsp curry powder ⁣

For the sauce:⁣

2 TBS soy sauce⁣
2 TBS maple syrup⁣
3 cloves of garlic chopped⁣

Prep the wings and pat them dry with kitchen towel. Add them into a big bowl and add the baking powder and other seasoning. Toss until all wings are covered. Add to your air fryer and fry for 25 mins on 190C, shake half way through.⁣

Meanwhile add all sauce ingredients and bring to a boil. Turn off off the heat.⁣

The wings are cooked after 25 mins but blast them again for 5 or so min on 200C to get them extra crispy.⁣

Toss the crispy wings in the sauce. Garnish with sesame seeds and chopped spring onions.
