My favorite food to cook in the Air Fryer is chicken wings. It's easy and there is such a variety of flavors that you can create something new each time.
We love hosting friends to cheer on our favorite football team and these Air Fryer Honey Garlic Chicken Wings are perfect for serving to a crowd. I serve them with a delicious vegetable tray and everyone enjoys snacking while having fun.
Although I am a foodie, I actually don't like to spend lots of time cooking meals for my family. It is exhausting if I'm in the kitchen for a long time plus I don't get to enjoy time with the family.
That's one of the main reasons that I love my Air Fryer, it cuts cooking time down but the food is just as delicious as if you spent hours making it. After a long day working I am all for anything that saves me time.
These are great for parties but they are a great dinner as well. You can cook them and the family can eat dinner together or if you are on-the-go they can grab them quickly and get full before a baseball game or dance class.
For dinner I like to serve them with a variety of sauces because they are dippable, but these are actually great on their own, the garlic and honey just explode with flavor.
Some of the sides that I like to serve them with is french fries (cooked in the Air Fryer, of course), Fried rice, macaroni salad and of course, cornbread.
