Frank's RedHot® Air Fryer Pickle-Back Buffalo Wings
Inspired by the pickle-back shot (a shot of whiskey chased by dill pickle juice) these unique wings are everything saucy, hot, and pickle-y. Served hot and crispy and coated in a blend of Frank’s RedHot® Dill Pickle Hot Sauce, butter, brown sugar, and bourbon, this easy appetizer makes game day, parties, happy hour, and dinner on a random Tuesday night better.
SPRAY basket of air fryer with no stick cooking spray. Preheat air fryer on 400°F. Pat wings dry with paper towels and season wings with salt and pepper.
PLACE wings in fryer basket, being careful not to over-fill. (Cook in batches, if needed, depending on the size of your air fryer.) Air fry 25 to 30 minutes or until skin is crispy and wings are cooked through, shaking basket or tossing wings with tongs every 5 minutes during cooking.
MEANWHILE, mix Hot Sauce, butter, brown sugar and bourbon in small saucepan. Bring to simmer on medium heat. Simmer, stirring occasionally for 3 to 5 minutes or until slightly thickened.
TOSS hot cooked wings with Pickle-back sauce to coat. Serve with ranch or blue cheese and celery, if desired.
