- Place 2c of the chicken flour into a gallon zip-lock plastic bag with a pair of tongs. Remove all the wings from the marinade, shaking each a few times to remove any excess marinade, and place them into the zip-lock bag. Seal the bag and shake the chicken and flour vigorously to coat all the wings.
- Carefully transfer the wings to a clean plate and spray them generously with the nonstick olive oil cooking spray. Then, flip the wings and spray them again with the nonstick olive oil cooking spray. Once the wings are coated, thoroughly spray the Air Fry Basket with nonstick cooking spray to prevent sticking.
- Once preheated, the oven will beep twice, display “Ready”, countdown for 10 seconds and then beep once to give you time to insert your food. Open the oven Door and slide the Air Fry Basket into the oven at position 3. Then, close the oven Door to begin air frying under Menu Preset 1, after which the oven will beep 3 times and display “END”.
- Use a meat thermometer to check if the internal temperature of the largest wing has reached 165°F.
