  • Season chicken wings with 1 Tbsp of the jerk seasoning. Refrigerate and allow the chicken wings to rest with dry rub for at least 30 minutes.
  • Preheat the air fryer basket on 400 degrees Fahrenheit for about 2-3 minutes. Add chicken wings to the basket and cook for 20-25 minutes, shaking about every 7 minutes. Cook the wings until they are crispy and golden.
  • Once done, remove the wings and place them in a large bowl. Add the remainder of the jerk seasoning and toss to coat the wings. Serve and enjoy.


  • Chicken should be cooked to an internal temperature of at least 165 degrees Fahrenheit. These wings will register close to 200 degrees Fahrenheit when they’re done, but the chicken will be nice and crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside.
  • This recipe calls for fresh wings but the chicken can be cooked from frozen. I cover that in process in detail in my air fryer chicken wings post
