Servings: 8 whole wings (16 pieces)


  • 8 whole wings
  • ¾ teaspoon salt

  • ½ cup potato or corn starch
  • ½ cup unsalted butter

Air fry for 12 minutes, flip and then cook for another 12 minutes. Flip wings one last time, increase temp to 390 degrees and cook until crispy for about 6 minutes.
  • Melt butter in a large microwave-safe bowl. Add lemon juice, honey, and lemon pepper seasoning. Stir together until combined. Toss cooked wings in the toss and then serve immediately.
