Chicken Wings in an Actifry??---Yes Please!!

Anyone who knows me well KNOWS that I am a HUGE wingnut!! I am craaaazy about my chicken wings. I have been as long as I can remember. Serve them to me hot or cold, I'll eat'em! About a year ago I bought myself this amazing machine called the actifry. I bought it for the purpose of cooking my french fries but as I soon discovered [insert suspense music here] that chicken wings baked VERY nicely in this gadget.

With this new found discovery I decided to look online for new ways to marinade my wings and found my hands-down new love. I would like to introduce you all to---

Emeril's Oven Roasted Chicken Wings

You won't have to clean the fryer or hide from your doctor ... Need I say more?

Emeril's Oven Roasted Chicken Wings


  • 4 pounds chicken wings, wing tips removed, separated at the joints
  • 1/4 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper

  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • Your favorite sauce, for serving, such as barbecue sauce, ranch dressing, or blue cheese dressing, optional


  • Preheat the oven to 500 F.
  • Line large rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil. In large mixing bowl, combine wings and lemon juice and mix thoroughly. Add pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and salt. While crushing between your fingers, add thyme. Mix again and add cayenne and butter. Mix thoroughly, then transfer wings to baking sheet and arrange in one layer. Roast in oven for 10 minutes, rotate pan and cook 10 minutes longer until wings are nicely browned and cooked through. Serve alone or with your favorite dipping sauce.
