How to Make Frozen Chicken Wings in the Air Fryer

  1. Place wings in a single layer in the pre-heated air fryer.
  2. Cook until wings are crispy brown, flipping halfway through (per recipe below).
  3. Season as desired and serve hot with your favorite dips or sauces.

Why Preheat the Air Fryer?

This is the key to perfectly air-fried food. The burst of hot air will circulate around the food giving it a crispy exterior without using a lot of fat!

Tips and Tricks

  • Avoid overcrowding the air fryer or the wings won’t crisp. Instead, cook in batches and keep them coming!
  • To serve a large batch all at once, keep the finished wings warm in the oven while air frying the rest of them.
  • For an extra crispy coating, broil finished chicken wings in the oven for about 2 minutes.

Storing and Reheating Chicken Wings

Keep leftover chicken wings in a covered container for up to 3 days. Reheat them in the air fryer at 400°F for 3-4 minutes.
