Tips & Notes
1- For crispier wings, I have added 1 tablespoon of corn starch. You can also add baking powder as well if you are keen on making the wings extra crispy.
2- Preheating the air fryer before cooking garlic parmesan wings is very effective and it prevents the wings from sticking to the air fryer basket and more even cooking.
3- You can also spray the air fryer basket with cooking oil as oil. It functions as a nonstick surface and stops wings from sticking to the air fryer basket.
4- I always suggest keeping a check on what you are cooking. Because it aids to make sure your wings are cooking nicely without being burnt.
