Air Fryer Cilantro Lime Chicken Wings with Oven Option

air fryer Chicken Wings are the first thing I made in my Air Fryer when I got it. Being from Buffalo and transplanted to Florida, we missed our good old Buffalo Chicken Wings.

So that meant only one thing….I had to replicate them. Which wasn’t hard to do by the way since we owned a pizzeria in Buffalo, lol. 

With so many different flavors of chicken wings to choose from, I’m not sure which one is my family’s favorite. Plus, there are different ways to make them.

We shared the Instant Pot Buffalo Wings and Instant Pot Sesame Garlic Wings if you would rather do it that way. However we also shared the Air Fryer Cajun Chicken Wings with the oven option as well.

These Cilantro Lime Wings also have the oven baked version if you prefer to do them in the oven. Any of these ways are much healthier than deep frying them and when you make them at home, you are also saving money. Plus you can make a different version for each family member if need be. 😉 So whether you make them in an air fryer, Ninja Foodie or instant pot, they are sure to be a hit.
