> Cooking spray
> 1 (3 lb) bag frozen chicken wings
> 1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
> 1/4 cup honey
> 2 tbsp sriracha
> 2 tbsp tomato paste
> 1 clove garlic, finely minced
> 1/2 tsp ground ginger
> 4 tbsp (1/2 stick) butter, melted and divided

To Serve:

> 1/4 cup sliced green onions
> 2 tsp sesame seeds (optional)
> 1 (14 oz) container carrot sticks and celery sticks


Preheat air fryer to 380°F. Coat air fryer basket with the cooking spray. Add half of the chicken wings in one layer. Cook 15–20 min., shaking as needed. Increase air fryer to 400°F. Cook wings 10–15 min., until chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165°F and skin is crispy.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together 3 tbsp water, soy sauce, honey, sriracha, tomato paste, garlic, and ginger. Season with salt and pepper.
In a large bowl, combine half of soy sauce mixture and 2 tbsp melted butter. Add first batch of wings and toss to coat. Transfer to a large serving platter. Repeat with remaining sauce and remaining wings. Garnish with the green onions and sesame seeds, if using. Serve with carrot and celery sticks.


Keep the first batch of sauced wings warm in a 300°F oven.
