  1. Preheat your air fryer to 400°F.
  2. In a bowl, mix cassava flour, garlic powder, paprika, salt, and pepper. Coat each chicken wing evenly in the cassava flour mixture.
  3. Place the coated wings in the air fryer basket, ensuring they are not touching each other.
  4. Air fry the wings for about 20-25 minutes, flipping halfway through, until they are golden brown and crispy. The internal temperature of the wings should reach at least 165°F to ensure they are fully cooked. Alternatively, if you choose to bake the wings in the oven, place into a preheated 400°F oven for about 45-50 minutes, flipping halfway through.
  5. While the wings are cooking, prepare the peanut butter glaze. In a saucepan, mix peanut butter, soy sauce, honey, water and a pinch of garlic powder, then add the lime juice. Heat over low heat until well combined and slightly thinned. If the sauce becomes too thick, slowly add in a little more water and lime juice. Give the sauce a taste and adjust as needed!
  6. Once the wings are done, transfer them to a large bowl. Pour the peanut butter glaze over the wings and toss until evenly coated.
  7. Serve the air-fried Peanut Butter Chicken Wings hot, garnished with chopped green onions or sesame seeds if desired.


For optimal crispiness, ensure the chicken wings are thoroughly coated in the cassava flour mixture before air frying, and be sure not to overcrowd the air fryer basket to allow for even cooking.To maintain the wings' crisp texture, let them cool slightly before tossing them in the peanut butter glaze. This helps the glaze adhere better without compromising the crunchiness achieved during air frying. Feel free to experiment with other nut butters, like almond or cashew butter as substitutes for peanut butter in the glaze. And, if you notice the sauce becoming too thick, simply add one tablespoon of water at a time and an extra squeeze of lime juice and continue to add the additional liquid in slowly until the taste and texture are ideal for you!
