Keto Dill Pickle Chicken Wings in the Air Fryer

Keto Dill Pickle Air Fryer Chicken Wings

yield: 4 SERVINGS

prep time: 5 HOURS

cook time: 28 MINUTES

total time: 5 HOURS 28 MINUTES

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds raw chicken wings, thawed
  • about 1 cup pickle juice from the jar
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dried dill weed
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

Directions

1

Add pickle juice and raw chicken wings to a gallon-sized Ziploc bag and marinate for at least 5 hours in the fridge (or longer if you really like that pickle juice flavor).

2

Remove wings from bag and discard juice. Pat all the wings dry using paper towels. Coat wings in melted butter.

3

Combine all seasonings in a dish, and coat the wings on both sides with the seasoning.

4

Grease the air fryer basket and add wings to the air fryer in a single layer. I was able to fit all 12 wings at once.

5

Set temp to 370 degrees and 14 minutes. After the first 14 minutes, turn the wings and set the timer for another 14 minutes.

6

Alternate oven instructions:

Instead of using the air fryer, you can bake the wings in the oven at 425 degrees. Bake for 20 minutes, turn wings over, and bake for another 20-25 minutes until desired crispiness.

7

Serve hot with keto ranch dip and enjoy!

Chicken wings are one of our favorite keto appetizers and makes a great dinner idea, too!

If you love that tangy, salty dill pickle taste, consider making flavorful dill pickle chicken wings brined in dill pickle juice! Next time you’re done with a jar of pickles, don’t toss the juice, and instead make some tasty chicken wings!

They taste so delicious without overdoing it with the pickle flavor, I promise! In fact, salt & vinegar wings are one of my favorites to order at restaurants, so I immediately knew I’d love this unique dill pickle chicken wing flavor idea!

Making chicken wings in the air fryer is so easy and always turns out the BEST!

I love how crispy and yummy the skin gets when cooking wings using an air fryer, so I pretty much make wings only using that method. You can of course make them in the oven, so I’ve included cooking instructions for both.

Here are a few recipe tips when making dill pickle chicken wings:

  • If you have the time to brine overnight, they’ll be a stronger pickle flavor. I marinated mine for about 5 hours, and the pickle flavor was definitely there, yet subtle.
  • Forget to thaw your chicken wings? No worries! You can easily and safely thaw them in the microwave by using the thaw button and setting it to 2 pounds weight.
  • Don’t forget to dip your dill pickle wings in ranch or blue cheese dressing! Here’s a wonderful homemade keto ranch dip to consider.
