    Things To Grab

    • Resealable plastic bag
    • Baking sheet
    • Parchment paper
    • 3 medium shallow bowls
    • Air fryer
    • Hy-Vee vegetable oil cooking spray


    1. Place chicken wing pieces in a resealable plastic bag. Pour barbecue sauce over chicken; seal bag. Turn bag to evenly coat chicken with sauce. Marinate in refrigerator for 30 minutes or up to 12 hours.

    2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside. Place ½ cup flour in a medium shallow bowl. Stir together remaining ½ cup flour and crushed corn snacks in another medium shallow bowl. Whisk together eggs in a third bowl.

    3. Drain chicken; discard barbecue sauce in bag. Dip wing pieces, one at a time, into flour; shake off excess. Then dip into eggs; coat with snack mixture. Place on prepared baking sheet; refrigerate for 30 minutes to 2 hours.

    4. Preheat air fryer to 400 degrees according to manufacturer’s directions. Spray air fryer basket with cooking spray. Working in batches, spray coated wing pieces with cooking spray; place in a single layer in basket. Air-fry for 10 to 12 minutes* or until chicken reaches 165 degrees turning and spraying with additional cooking spray halfway through.
