  • 16 pieces (1st and 2nd sections) of the chicken wings or use whole wings
  • cooking oil
  • Garlic Butter Sauce (Món Gà Chiên Bơ) (Sufficient for 8 pieces of wings or more)

  • 2-3 tbsp of unsalted butter
  • 1 tbsp of minced garlic
  • lime juice, salt, pepper for dipping
  • Fish Sauce Style (Cánh Gà Chiên Nước Mắm) (Sufficient for 8 pieces of wings or more)

  • 3 tbsp of good fish sauce such as Red Boat
  • 3 tbsp of water
  • 3 tbsp of sugar
  • 1 tbsp of lime juice
  • 1 tbsp of minced garlic
  • minced chili (optional)



  1. Wash wings well, pat dry.  Place in Air Fryer in a single layer and not too tight together, brush lightly with some cooking oil on top.  Set Air Fryer Temperature to about 375 F for 18-20 minutes.  *Please note cooking time may varies depending on your Air Fryer.  Use this time and setting as a guide.
  2. When it’s about 8 minutes remaining, flip the wings and lightly brush this side with some cooking oil.  Continue cooking until wings are lightly golden brown to your liking.
  3. Prepare the sauce:
    • For Garlic Butter Sauce: Melt butter in a pan and add minced garlic until fragrance, turn off heat immediately.  Please note to prepare this sauce right before the wings are done frying.  Don’t make this too far in advance otherwise the butter will thicken again.
    • For Fish Sauce: Combined all ingredients above and adjust to your taste as needed.
  4. Once the wings are done frying, remove from Air Fryer and immediately toss wings evenly into your sauce.  Remove and add to a serving plate, drizzle the garlic sauce on top.
  5. For Garlic Butter Wings, serve with a side of lime juice, salt and pepper sauce (muoi tieu chanh).  For Fish Sauce Wings, serve with the remainder fish sauce if you prefer.
