Tips & Tricks

  • Always preheat the air fryer so the hot air can seal the outside of the wings, keeping the meat tender and juicy inside.
  • Avoid overcrowding the air fryer tray or basket so the hot air can circulate properly.
  • For super quick cleanup, place a paper coffee filter on the bottom of the air fryer to absorb oil.

Leftover Chicken Wings

If there are any, you mean!

  • Store leftover chicken wings in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days and reheat in the air fryer until heated through!
  • Freeze wings in a zippered bag for up to 4 weeks. Reheat frozen wings in the air fryer from thawed or frozen on high power until heated through.
