"Peanut" Sauce Chicken Wings

Chicken wings are such an easy, fun meal idea. The typical chicken wing is tossed in a buffalo sauce, but I wanted to make something for fun. These wings are tossed in a “peanut” sauce that uses almond butter instead of peanut butter to keep it Whole30 compatible. Any nut butter will work, though, or sunbutter if there is a tree nut allergy in your household. This recipe includes instructions for cooking the chicken wings in the air fryer and the oven.
