Author Notes

Inspired by the Asian Restaurant classic, these Bang Bang Chicken Wings bring you all of the flavors of the addictive sauce, except that it tossed over crispy chicken wings. And, the chicken wings are done in an air fryer with no added oil. So, this makes the recipe ridiculously easy and perfect for your next party. If you do not have an air fryer you can roast the chicken wings on a sheet pan, this will get you fairly good results as well. —Rinku Bhattacharya /Spice Chronicles
