Notes

Make these wings in a pan on the stovetop, in the oven or in the Air Fryer.
If you don’t have any cornflakes, toss the wings in panko breadcrumbs instead.
Store any leftovers in the fridge for 3-4 days. Reheat in the Air Fryer or in the oven.
Freeze the cooked wings for up to 3 months. Defrost in the fridge overnight then reheat.
