  • 1 Tablespoon of Sweet Chili sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon of Garlic powder

  • In a medium-size bowl, add the egg, and milk, and whisk together until blended.  In another large bowl, add the flour.  Open the Chicken wings, and place on Parchment paper.  Sprinkle with Garlic salt, Seasoned salt, and Seasoned pepper. Spray the bottom of the Air Fryer basket with Spray Olive Oil.  Dip wings, one at a time, in the egg/milk mixture, and then roll in the flour, and repeat (dip again in egg/milk mixture - then roll in flour).  After the second dip and roll in flour, place the wings in the Air Fryer basket.  Spray the wings with the Spray Olive Oil, and set the temperature to 400 degrees for 10 minutes.  Remove Fryer basket, and turn wings, and spray lightly with Spray Olive oil.  Cook in the Air Fryer for 10 more minutes, checking wings every 3 minutes, making sure they are not getting too browned.  If they appear to be getting too brown, turn the temperature to 375, and continue to cook.  Remove the wings from the basket to a large bowl.
