Air Fried Sweet Cilantro Lime Chicken Wings

Updated: Mar 20, 2021

I was given an air fryer by a friend and it has been one of the best kitchen tools I have. Let me tell you, it cooks everything perfectly! ESPECIALLY chicken wings! These irresistible wings are a simple and quick recipe you can whip up on a weeknight or at the end of a busy week. All the seasoning and herbs beautifully compliment each other.

Serve it with your favorite dipping sauce, a side dish, and a cold drink. I enjoyed my wings with ranch dressing and a refreshing ginger beer drink (recipe coming soon for that)!

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 25 minutes

Total time: 30 minutes


  • 1.5 lb chicken wings

  • ½ tablespoons chicken bouillon seasoning

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon black pepper

  • ½ lemon, juice

  • 1 lime, juice

  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes

  • 2 tablespoon olive oil

  • 2 tablespoon honey

  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh cilantro

  • 1 cloves minced fresh garlic or ½ teaspoon garlic powder

  • ½ teaspoon chili powder

  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika

  • ½ teaspoon cumin powder


Air fryer

Large bowl


  1. Season chicken wings with bouillon, lemon juice, black pepper, and salt. Marinate for 30 minutes to 1 hour.

  2. Combine lime juice, red pepper flakes, olive oil, honey, cilantro, garlic or garlic powder, chili powder, smoked paprika, cumin powder and whisk until combined. Set aside.

  3. Add chicken wings to the air fryer. Set to 400 and cook for 25 minutes until golden brown or darker if that's your vibe.

  4. Remove chicken from the air fryer and add to a large bowl while hot.

  5. Add cilantro lime sauce to wings and toss until wings are well coated.

  6. Remove from the bowl and serve with your favorite side dishes.


  • Marinate chicken in advance for deeper flavor. The longer it marinates the better the seasoning penetrates the chicken.

  • To bake: Add to an oven safe dish or tray, set oven temperature to 400 degrees and cook for 25 minutes - 30 minutes until well done.
