To Make Garlic Parmesan Wings
Cook garlic in butter then turn off the heat and pour it into a large mixing bowl. Add the remaining ingredients along with the wings to the bowl and toss.
To Make Buffalo Wings
Cook butter with garlic for 2 minutes. Turn off heat and pour into a large bowl. Add hot sauce and salt. Stir in wings.
To Make Honey BBQ wings
Simmer all ingredients in a small pot or pan. Transfer to a bowl and toss in wings.
Serve with a side of blue cheese or ranch dressing and chopped celery and carrots.
You will need a large air-fryer in order to cook wings in one batch in a single layer. This is our preferred air-fryer.
