These Honey Soy Garlic Wings are so delicious, they are sweet, savory and sticky! Make these easily with an air fryer – baking powder + cornstarch make the wings extra crispy.

Air Fryer Sticky Honey Soy Garlic Wings Recipe

I air fried the wings in an Instant Omni Pro, but any air fryer oven should work well. If you have the basket type, you’ll probably have to cook the wings in two batches. Baking Powder might sound like odd ingredient for wings, but it slightly changes the ph level of the chicken, which helps to lower the temperate at which the Miallard reaction occurs, helping to develop a brown, crispy texture.Instant Omni Pro Air Fryer

Air Fryer Sticky Honey Soy Garlic Wings Recipe

  • Prep time: 10 minutes
  • Cook time: 30 minutes
  • Serves: 4


  • 2.25 Pounds Wings (18 Flats and Drumettes)
  • 2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1 Tablespoon Cornstarch
  • ½ Teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • ½ Teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • ¼ Teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
  • Chopped Green Onions and Sesame Seeds for garnish


  • 1 Tablespoon Butter
  • 2 Garlic Cloves, minced
  • ¼ Cup Honey
  • 2 Teaspoons Soy Sauce
  • ½ Teaspoon Rice Vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons Water


  • 1)

    In a large bowl, combine 2 Teaspoons Baking Powder, ½ Teaspoon Garlic Powder, ½ Teaspoon Kosher Salt, ¼ Teaspoon Ground Black Pepper & 1 Tablespoon Cornstarch. Toss the wings to coat evenly. Brush the basket with a little bit of oil so the wings don’t stick and place the wings into the air fry basket/tray.

    **Make sure you are using Baking Powder and NOT Baking Soda – baking soda will make the wings inedible.

    Choose Air Fry at 400°F for 30 Minutes (this timing may differ depending on your air fryer), flip half way through. In a bowl, combine ¼ Cup Honey, 2 Teaspoons Soy Sauce, ½ Teaspoon Rice Vinegar, 2 Tablespoons Water and stir well to combine. Use a large non stick skillet, on medium-high heat melt 1 Tablespoons Butter, sauté the minced garlic for about 2 minutes then add the sauce mixture. Let the sauce simmer for a few minutes until it starts to thicken up, it should look like syrup. Toss the wings in the soy honey garlic sauce, if you want them extra sticky turn the heat on high and let the syrup simmer for about 1 minute. Plate the wings, spoon on any extra sauce left in the pan and garnish with chopped scallions. Enjoy!

    Such a good recipe!! Turned out perfect. I went without the spoon of sugar in the sauce and added a squirt of hot sauce to it.
