Air Fryer Cherry Chipotle Wings have so much sweet and smoky flavor and cooking them in the Air Fryer is wonderfully quick and easy. These wings have maximum flavor from both a dry rub and an easy 3-ingredient sauce.
Air Fryers are perfect for making the foods you love a little healthier. You can get the crispness of deep frying with very little oil. I find that air fried foods are superior in taste to baked foods, plus they only take a fraction of the time to cook. There is so much to love about Air frying foods.
These Air Fryer Cherry Chipotle Wings are first coated in a spice rub made from smoked paprika, dry mustard, chili powder, garlic powder, oregano, and thyme. They are spritzed with just a little oil and then Air Fried for 10 minutes.
What’s great about cooking wings in the Air Fryer is any fat that renders down drops down through the holes in the Air Fryer basket.
Once cooked the wings are tossed with a simple sauce made from chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, cherry preserves, and ketchup. If you wanted to you could change up the flavors of this recipe and use peach preserves or blueberry preserves.
There’s no need to cook the sauce. Got to love that! This recipe truly could not be easier. You could serve the wings with a Ranch sauce or Blue Cheese, but they have so much flavor and are so moist and tender, they really don’t need it.
