Air Fryer Chicken Wings

I have GREAT news!!! Butcherbox now has wings! Yes! Organic wings mailed right to your front door! Click HERE to order organic WINGS to your front door!

If you didn’t know already, I am working away at writing Keto Air Fryer cookbook! AND I worked so hard on it, the book is releasing 2 MONTHS EARLY! You can pre-order it HERE.

If you have little children or grandchildren, hold them close and hug them every chance you get. My boys are growing up too fast. There’s a lovely children’s book called Tuck Everlasting where a family drinks from a magic well and they stay that age. If I could, I would have us drink from the “magic well.” I love the age Micah and Kai are at; they are 8 and 9. They are funny, we love to play board games together every night, they can help me in the kitchen, they are the light of my life!

When I finished my last book, Keto Instant Pot, my plan was to take a break and slow down so I can enjoy my family more and focus on my Keto Coaching students. But I’ve been told this many times, “if you want to hear god laugh, tell him what you have planned!” And it couldn’t be more true in many aspects of my life.

When Erich, my publisher, called to discuss an air fryer book, I couldn’t say no. I already use my air fryer almost daily so to be honest, a Keto Air Fryer book was a destiny!


Making air fryer chicken wings at home sounds hard but it is really very simple! It is not only simple, but it is also much more affordable than eating out at restaurants and you know you are getting quality ingredients without sugar! Too many times I hear, “It is too expensive to eat keto!” However, if you step back and look at how much eating out at Buffalo Wild Wings is compared to ordering organic chicken wings from Butcherbox OR Roo Nutrition, you save a lot of money by making quality food at home.


Most of you know that I am not a gadget girl. I like life simple without a lot of clutter. One gadget that Craig bought me was an Air Fryer and I thought I was never going to use it.

Boy was I wrong. I use it almost daily, no lie! It has an air fry mode (for making chicken wings), a broiler mode (for fish), a convection mode (to make my keto flourless chocolate torte), a pizza mode (for my keto pizzas) and other modes like toasting (for my keto bagels) and a reheat mode (so you can skip the microwave).

The best part of using the air fryer that it doesn’t heat up the whole house and only takes a minute to pre-heat! Click HERE to find the one that I love! 

Making air fryer chicken wings is so easy that my son Kai wanted to make a video of him making them. Chicken wings is his favorite food! One of my favorite joys in life is watching my boys become keto cooks. Micah and Kai decided to start a Keto Kids Youtube channel!

“Hi Maria, A few years ago I heard of “keto” from a relative that was very successful in their “journey” of better health. They suggested your website. I learned a TON from your site! I’m a nerd at heart and love researching new topics – so at the time I didn’t have that “umph “ to begin my own weight loss journey but keto was always in the back of mind as I have always struggled with my weight.

Last summer I had episodes of feeling “off” until one day I temporarily lost my eyesight. Brushed it off. I started feeling foggy here and there. I decided to go to the doctor . My blood pressure was 185/115. I was told that is stroke level. For a “healthy” 31 year old – I was actually terrified . I was put on BP pills. Over time I had to quadruple the dosage to keep my BP down.

I woke up and said to myself – I’m over this! I’m tired of feeling like this emotionally and physically. I decided to dive into keto! I was a whopping 267 lbs! Today I am 222! Miraculous! I don’t even feel like I’m on a “diet.” I have made multiple friends at work due to this change and I am happy to share it with them. For the first time in a long time I feel like my old self again, confident, happy, and honestly – only feel positive vibes/changes coming into my life. I wanted to thank you for all the effort and work you put into providing ample information and support for fellow keteors. Truly life changing!”

Most people I consult are doing keto totally wrong. Get fast results with the my NEW Keto School!

    Hi Maria! The link to the Oven is broken – it goes to a page cannot be found page….

  • Kelly says:

    First off – where can I subscribe to the Keto Kids YouTube page? My nieces and I will be all over that! Second, the link to your Amazon page for the air fryer isn’t working. Can you tell us the brand and model or update the link? THANK YOU!!! Now I want chicken wings and it’s only 9:30 in the morning #KetoLife haha!

  • Jane Ali says:

    Hi Maria,
    Can you tell me what brand of psyllium you are using in your miracle bread lately.
    I called the Jay Robb company yesterday and they have discontinued theirs.

  • Lynnette says:

    Air fryer is my favourite way to cook chicken wings & thighs. Kai’s video is great! He’s already more comfortable in front of the camera than I think I’ll ever be 🙂 Great Job Kai!!!! Keep it up!!!

  • jeanne says:

    the air fryer link now goes to a 5.8 quart fryer–it is not a breville –thanks for all you do! love your site

  • April Carson says:

    I have a convection oven with a grill feature. I’m going to try this in that!

  • Maria Emmerich says:

    Here is the Smart Oven, it was out of stock for awhile: https://amzn.to/2MJIZKM

  • Sandra says:

    I don’t see where there is an air fryer function on the toaster oven???

  • We can fry with coconut oil too, right?

  • Bob says:

    Maria –

    I just finished your book, Keto: the Complete Guide. It’s terrific! I related to much of your experience – particularly your struggle to curb nighttime eating. I’m great during the day but cave at night. Any suggestions on how I can stop derailing myself?


  • Jane van der Westhuizen says:

    Hi Maria,
    Awesome job Kai! This recipe looks great, and I’m really keen to get one of these ovens linked (Breville BOV800XL Smart Oven 1800-Watt Convection Toaster Oven with Element IQ, Silver), it looks the same as in your video, but the 9 functions listed don’t mention air fryer (9 present functions: Toast, Bagel, Bake, Roast, Broil, Pizza, Cookies, Reheat and Warm). Could it be the roast function that you use for your “air fryer chicken wings”?
    Look forward to your advice.
    Thanks so much,
    New Zealand
