Cooking Tips

  • Check for Doneness: Use a meat thermometer to ensure the internal temperature of the chicken wings reaches 165°F (74°C) before serving. This guarantees that the wings are cooked through and safe to eat.
  • Use Cooking Spray: Lightly coat the air fryer basket with cooking spray before adding the chicken wings. This helps prevent sticking and promotes even browning.

Variations

  • Garlic Honey BBQ Chicken Wings: Elevate your air fryer BBQ chicken wings by incorporating garlic powder and a touch of honey in the seasoning mix for a delightful twist on traditional flavors.

Storage & Reheating Instructions

  • Storage Instructions: Allow the air fryer BBQ chicken wings to cool completely before storing. Place the wings in an airtight container or resealable bag. Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
  • Freezing Instructions: To freeze, arrange the wings in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Place the baking sheet in the freezer until the wings are frozen solid. Transfer the frozen bbq chicken wings to a freezer-safe bag or container for long-term storage. Freeze for up to 2-3 months.
  • Reheating Instructions: To reheat leftover BBQ chicken wings from refrigerated, preheat the air fryer to 350°F. Place the wings in the air fryer basket and heat for 3-4 minutes until warmed through. For frozen chicken wings, increase the cooking time to 8-10 minutes or until heated thoroughly.

FAQ’S

Should Chicken Wings Be Thawed Before Air Frying?

For best results I would recommend thawing the wings, so you can season them better. However, you don’t need to defrost the chicken wings before air frying, but you will need to increase the time by 5-minutes.

How Many Wings Fit in the Air Fryer?

The amount of wings you can fit in your air fryer depends on how big the air fryer is. If you have a 4-quart, you can easily air fry 6 wings at a time. If you have a 6.5 quart air fryer, you can cook up to 12 wings at a time. The bigger the air fryer, the more wings you can cook. Just make sure to space them out so they are not overlapping.
