Preheat Air fryer at 380 degrees for 5 minutes. Once it is preheated, place chicken wings side by side in the basket. Select chicken and cook at 380 degrees. Change time to 20 minutes, turning chicken over halfway to cook evenly on both sides.
While chicken is cooking, in a small bowl, whisk hot sauce, butter, and brown sugar. (It will thicken as butter cools, so don’t be concerned if it first appears as a thin sauce.) Once chicken is done, move from the basket to a large bowl. Pour the buffalo sauce over the wings, and toss with a spoon, covering each piece thoroughly.
If preparing more than two pounds of wings, cook in batches. You technically can stack the chicken, but it will block the air in the fryer, so it won’t cook the wings properly.
For extra crispy wings, add another minute or two on each side.
I drained the sauce after tossing the chicken so we could dip the chicken in it. It is a very easy sauce with just three ingredients! I used a traditional hot sauce, but depending on taste, it can be switched for a hotter sauce, or milder sauce. The brown sugar adds just the right amount of sweetness to the wings! We love this sauce! We don’t like traditional buffalo sauce, and prefer it to be a little sweeter along with the spice, but not too sweet. (You can put this sauce on shrimp and chicken breast too)
