What you will need:

3 lbs fresh party-cut chicken wings
1 container Talluto's Sweet Basil Pesto Sauce
1/2 tsp Kosher Salt
1 tsp freshly ground Black Pepper

  9. When the wings are finished cooking, remove them from the air fryer and place them in the bowl with the pesto sauce.

If you are a fan, try a drizzle of balsamic glaze over the top of the wings!
