You guys know I’m a lover of all sorts of chicken wings.
I signed up for a Butcherbox subscription earlier this year because I was aiming to eat more at home, and spend way less at the grocery store.
Using ButcherBox has helped me achieve those goals, but it has also made me much more inventive with my food choices.
ButcherBox often has deals for members, and so I caught the “free chicken wings for life” promotion, which was so awesome!
There are so many wings I could make, but I wanted to try my hand at my favorite: Garlic Parmesan.
They’re low carb, high protein, and absolutely delicious!
How to make garlic parmesan wings in your air fryer
Traditionally, air fryer wings crisp up when coated in oil. They’re still juicy, but I wanted to get really flavorful, plump and tender wings.
I used a traditional method: buttermilk marinade.
Marinating your wings in buttermilk does two things. One, it breaks down the wings and tenderizes them, so that they are fall-off-the-bone delicious.
Second, it lends itself to enhancing the flavor of the chicken.
You can do this from two hours, to overnight. The longer the better of course. Your chicken will be both flavorful and tender.
Then, once they’re marinated, you pat them dry, give them a toss in an oil of your choice (avocado for me), and toss them into the air fryer.
Why use an air fryer?
Air fryers circulate hot air to cook food that you might otherwise cook in excess oil. It’s a healthier cooking method that gets a similar result to deep frying without all the extra calories and fat.
