Description:

Chicken wings are by far the most popular snack consumed during the Big Game. Last year’s estimate was a mind-boggling 1.42 billion chicken wings, according to the National Chicken Council. However, with all the deep-frying, the buttery sauces and the blue cheese on the side, classic buffalo wings are a healthy-eating disaster. This is why, both Larry and Chef Michele suggest using an air fryer and Parmigiano Reggiano cheese.

To prove how delicious and nutritious chicken wings can be, Chef Michele went into his kitchen and made a batch with his favorite cheese. Try this recipe for the Big Game, and enjoy a healthier snack during game time.

Ingredients:

6 chicken wings
2 tablespoon panko
1/3 cup shaved Parmigiano Reggiano cheese *Chef Hint

Aioli

1 head of garlic
1 teaspoon dry garlic powder

teaspoon black pepper
1 cup mayonnaise
cup grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese *Chef Hint

Hint:

Buy your favorite fresh or frozen bone-in skin-on wings, just place into the air fryer basket, no need for oil, no need to thaw. It’s ok if the chicken overlaps a bit since they will shrink in size as they cook.

Depending on the size of your air fryer you may need to cook the wings in batches. To keep them warm heat your oven to 200 F and place the cooked wings inside.

For this recipe use Parmigiano Reggiano cheese aged 24 months for the best consistency and flavor.
