Quentin’s Air-Fryer Peach-Bourbon Wings

My father and husband love bourbon flavor, so I add it to tangy wings air-fried in peach preserves. Stand back and watch these wings fly. —Christine Winston, Richmond, Virginia
  • Total Time
    Prep: 35 min. Cook: 15 min./batch
  • Makes
    about 1-1/2 dozen pieces

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup peach preserves
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons bourbon
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons water
  • 2 pounds chicken wings

Directions

  • Preheat air fryer to 400°. Place preserves, brown sugar, garlic and salt in a food processor; process until blended. Transfer to a small saucepan. Add vinegar and bourbon; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, until slightly thickened, 4-6 minutes.
  • In a small bowl, mix cornstarch and water until smooth; stir into preserves mixture. Return to a boil, stirring constantly; cook and stir 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Reserve 1/4 cup sauce for serving.
  • Using a sharp knife, cut through the 2 joints on each chicken wing; discard wing tips. In batches, place wing pieces in a single layer on greased tray in air-fryer basket. Cook 6 minutes; turn and brush with preserves mixture. Cook until browned and juices run clear, 6-8 minutes longer. Serve wings immediately with reserved sauce.

Test Kitchen tip
  • In our testing, we have found cook times vary dramatically between brands of air fryers. As a result, we have given wider than normal ranges on suggested cook times. Begin checking at the first time listed and adjust as needed.
