  • 1½ teaspoons paprika
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper
  • 3½ to 4 pounds chicken wings, separated if necessary
  • ½ cup Buffalo-style hot sauce (such as Frank's RedHot)
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • ¼ cup ranch dressing
  • 2 carrots, cut into sticks
  • 1 stalk celery, cut into sticks


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 200°F. Preheat air fryer to 375°F. Combine paprika, garlic powder, onion powder and pepper in a large bowl. Add wings and toss to coat. Let stand for 10 minutes.
  2. Add half of the wings to the air-fryer basket; cook for 15 minutes. Turn the wings; continue to cook until they're crispy and a thermometer inserted in the thickest portion registers 165°F, about 5 minutes. Arrange the wings in a single layer on a baking sheet; transfer to the oven to keep warm. Repeat the process with the remaining wings.
  3. Cook hot sauce and butter in a small saucepan over medium-high heat, whisking often, until the butter melts and the mixture is smooth, 2 to 3 minutes.
  4. Transfer the wings to a large bowl. Add the butter sauce and toss to coat. Serve alongside ranch dressing, carrots and celery.
