Air Fryer Buffalo Chicken Wings

In my opinion Air Fryer Buffalo Chicken Wings ticks all the boxes for a cheap family meal, whether you’re on a budget or not. In the Milner household we spend less than $75 a week to feed a family of 5 and this includes our addiction to buffalo wings in the air fryer.

I grew up in a family that had no money worries. My parents started their own business when I was a toddler and it was successful from a very early point. It also allowed them to retire before their 50th birthdays and enjoy the good life.

But when I met my husband it was the complete opposite. He worked for below the minimum wage and I suddenly had to go frugal with everything that I cooked. My beef roast was replaced with meatloaf and my love for steak was completely forgotten about.

Over the years I learnt so much about frugal cooking and about cheap cuts of meat. In fact, the first cheap cut of meat that Dominic introduced me to was chicken wings. I just couldn’t believe how cheap they were and how far they would stretch.

Now here in Portugal we get packs of them for just 2 euros. These packs are enough to feed a family of five when you take into account side dishes to go with them. We will usually serve them with some cauliflower rice or as part of a casserole. And there is always some leftover for another day.

In this Air Fryer buffalo chicken wings recipe, I wanted to show you that you don’t need shop bought buffalo sauce and you can make them yourself and they take very little time to do.

If you want something for a girls night in, a lads night in, family suppers or even for a buffet then our Air Fryer Buffalo Chicken Wings is your solution!

Are Buffalo Wings Spicy?

Yes they are. BUT because the ingredients that are added are being added by YOU, you have the option to make it spicy or mild.

I am feeding my buffalo chicken wings to my 2-year-old son Jorge and my 4 year old daughter Sofia, I tend to reduce the spice by half so that its not too spicy for them.

You too can experiment with the level of spice depending on how spicy you like your buffalo chicken wings.

    • Hi tom,

      Thanks for your email.

      I always cook from thawed. Its never a good idea to cook uncooked chicken from frozen.

      Kind regards
