Stir Fry


  • Coat Air Fryer Basket with a thin coat of Oil. (See my article on How to Prepare and Season Air Fryer Basket.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together egg white, salt and pepper until foamy.  Pat dry chicken wings and add to egg white mixture.  Coat thoroughly.  Marinate for at least 20 minutes.
  • Transfer chicken wings into a large bowl and add Potato Starch.  Dredge the wings through the Potato Starch thoroughly.  Shake off wings and place them into prepared Air Fryer Basket.  Lightly spray wings with Oil.
  • Cook at 380 degrees for 25 minutes, shaking the basket every 5 minutes.  Cook an additional 5 minutes at 400 degrees, or until chicken wings are nice and brown.

Stir Fry

  • Slice Jalapeños thin and remove seeds.  Chop scallions.  Place in bowl and set aside.
  • Heat wok or skillet until screaming hot.  Add oil, jalapeño peppers, scallions, salt and pepper and stir fry for about a minute.  Add air fried chicken wings to the wok or skillet and toss with the jalapeños and scallions, to coat.  Stir Fry for another minute.
