Sour Cream & Onion Chicken Wings

air fryer sour cream & Onion chicken wings recipe perfect for fall and winter football season and game day

If you love sour cream & onion chips as much as I do, then you have to try my Sour Cream & Onion Chicken Wings! With football season in full swing, I decided to combine two of my favorite things. This is the ultimate game day dish. The Irish girl in me loves potato chips more than just about anything. I couldn’t believe that “it smells like the chips” (check out this video to see why!).

These wings are savory, flavorful, tasty, and super easy to make. All you have to do is season your wings, pop them into the air fryer, and pour the delicious butter sauce overtop. This will be a guaranteed touchdown and let’s be honest, food is truly the best part of football season. Hope you love them as much as we do!

Here’s a video of how I put my air fryer Sour Cream & Onion Chicken Wings together. For another delicious dish, check out this Garlicky Lemon Pepper Parmesan Chicken Wings recipe.

What You'll Need:

+ 2 lbs chicken wings (chicken drumettes and wing flats)

+ 2 tbsp EVOO

+ ⅓ cup sour cream

+ 4 tbsp onion powder, divided

+ 2 tbsp garlic powder

+ 1.5 tsp salt

+ 1 tsp pepper

+ 1 tsp paprika

+ ½ tsp crushed red pepper flakes

+ 1 stick unsalted butter

+ 2 tbsp. lemon, divided

+ Zest of 1 lemon

+ ½ cup parmesan, freshly and finely grated

+ 2 tbsp. Fresh chives, finely chopped

+ Fresh parsley, chopped for garnish


1. In a bowl, combine olive oil, sour cream, 1 tbsp. Lemon juice, 2 tbsp. Onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, crushed red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper. Stir or whisk to combine. (Note – i did this differently in the video because it was better for camera but definitely recommend mixing the sauce like this ahead of time to make coating the chicken MUCH easier!)

2. In a large bowl, add chicken wings and seasoned sour cream mixture overtop. Toss until evenly coated.

3. Air fry at 400 degrees for 16-20 minutes flipping halfway through (8-10 minutes on each side). For a conventional oven, bake at 425 degrees and for approximately 45-50 minutes flipping at the 30 minute mark.

4. In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt butter and add lemon zest and the remaining 2 tbsp. Onion powder. Cook for 2-3 minutes and remove from heat.

5. In a large mixing bowl, add cooked wings, the butter sauce, 1 tbsp. lemon juice, parmesan, and chives. Toss to combine.

6. Serve and garnish with parsley. Enjoy!
