It seems like everyone loves ranch dressing. If you don’t love ranch dressing, like myself, you will still love these succulent Air Fryer ranch wings. I can’t stand ranch dressing, but I llooovvvee these wings.

My parents bought me an Air Fryer for Christmas and I have been wearing it out every since, hence this recipe.

I have a NuWave Air Fryer. It has definitely been a time saver and another way to cook healthier meals.

A little history behind the wings…

I worked at the Walmart deli once upon a time and ranch wings were one of the items sold in the hot case.

People raved over their wings. I said these people must really love ranch, but most people do anyway right?

So one day I decided to see what the fuss was about. Once I tried the wings, I was hooked.

Air Fryer Ranch Wings

I was so hooked that now I cook them at home at least every other week. Not to mention, making them in the Air Fryer gives the wings the same crispiness without the need for extra breading or oil, but either way they are great.

I recommend seasoning your wings prior to cooking them, but that is a personal choice. I have found that if not pre-seasoned, they make lack flavor, even with the addition of the ranch seasoning mix.


If you don’t have an Air Fryer or just prefer to deep fry the wings, fry the wings in the oil (either breaded or unbreaded) until brown.

Once done transfer the wings to a paper towel to drain the excess oil for about thirty seconds. It is very important to drain the excess oil quickly. If the wings stay on the paper towel too long, the seasoning does not coat the wings as well.

Lastly, transfer the wings into a large bowl, sprinkle them with the ranch seasoning mix, toss to coat the wings evenly and serve.

    This recipe sounds simple and delicious.Definitely trying it today. How do you get your wings to brown when using the air fryer?

  3. I also have been looking at getting an air fryer. What brand/size are you using that can fit 10 wings?
    I am cooking for a family of 6 so need to prepare a lot of food.

    I’m curious about the air fryer…been eyeing one for a while but worried that it’s not as healthy as they say. seems too good to be true! Yours sounds so easy, might be my next purchase!

      I love it. I look at it like this, I don’t have an issue using a microwave (some people do), so why not the air fryer. And sometimes I just don’t feel like dealing with deep frying, having to monitor the stove and cleaning up afterwards. Everyone has a preference though so you have to do what works best for you. I left some tips in the notes for frying the traditional way. They are also great baked!
