Always preheat the air fryer before using. The initial blast of hot air seals the outside of the wings and makes them crispy while keeping in all the delicious juices!

What To Do with Leftovers

Freeze leftover wings in a zippered bag with the date labeled on the outside for up to 4 weeks. Reheat frozen wings in the air fryer from a thawed or frozen state.
