  • 2 to 3 pounds Chicken wings
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 cups flour
  • Garlic salt - to taste
  • Seasoned salt - to taste
  • Seasoned Pepper - to taste
  • Spray Olive Oil


  • 1/2 cup Soy Sauce
  • 1/2 cup of Applesauce
  • 1/3 cup of Sugar
  • 1/3 cup of Brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • 1 teaspoon of minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon of Sesame oil
  • 1 Tablespoon of Rice Wine Vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon of Pear Juice
  • 1 Tablespoon of Lemon Juice
  • 1 Tablespoon of Apple Juice
  • 1 Tablespoon of Orange Juice
  • 1 Tablespoon of Sweet Chili sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon of Garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of Ground Ginger
  • 2 Tablespoons of Cornstarch


  • Start by making the sauce; In a large heavy saucepan, add the Soy sauce, Applesauce, Sugar, Brown sugar, Water, Minced Garlic, Sesame Oil, Rice wine Vinegar, Pear Juice, Lemon Juice, Orange Juice, Sweet Chili Sauce, garlic powder, onion powder, ground ginger, and stir all ingredients together until well blended.  Bring to a boil, and turn heat to low.  Allow sauce to simmer while you're preparing the Wings.
  • 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.
  • In a small bowl, place the Corn starch, and add enough water to stir the corn starch until smooth.  Add the Corn starch to the sauce, and turn the heat up to medium-high.  Bring the sauce to a boil, stirring constantly, and when the sauce boils and thickens, remove from heat. Stir sauce, and spoon over wings.  Toss wings in sauce to coat.  Place wings back in the air fryer for 1 minute.  Remove wings to a plate, sprinkle with sesame seeds, and serve with additional sauce on the side.   Enjoy!


NOTE:  Any sauce that is left over, simply place in an airtight container, and keep refrigerated for up to 30 days.
