5 Best Chicken Wing Recipes
How to Cook Chicken Wings
Just as there are a number of different sauces you can douse your chicken wings with, there are also a number of different methods for cooking them.
My go-to method varies between baking and air fryer. If you’ve never tried making wings in an air fryer, you should definitely give it a try.
Baked Chicken Wings
Bake at 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) for 30 minutes, turning halfway. You can then baste the wings with sauce and broil for 3-6 minutes, or toss the chicken wings with the dip after cooking.
Air Fryer Chicken Wings
Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) for 3-5 minutes. Add the wings to the basket. Cook for 10 minutes then shake the basket and cook for an additional 10 minutes.
Instant Pot Chicken Wings
You can cook chicken wings in the Instant Pot from fresh or frozen. From fresh, cook on high pressure for 10 minutes. From frozen, cook on high pressure for 15 minutes. The wings won’t get crispy in the IP, so you’ll have to broil them after if you want.
How to Reheat Chicken Wings
There are quite a few ways to go about reheating chicken wings if you happen to find yourself with some leftovers, but one method really stands out from the rest. We really believe that the best way to reheat chicken wings is with the air fryer.
- Preheat the air fryer to 365°F (185°C) for about 5 minutes.
- Brush or spray the air fryer basket with oil.
- Place the chicken wings in a single layer in the air fryer basket, making sure not to overcrowd them.
- Cook for about 8-10 minutes, flipping the wings halfway through.
Overall, reheating chicken wings in an air fryer is a great option for those who want to enjoy hot and crispy wings fast. It provides consistent results, ensuring that the wings are heated evenly and thoroughly.
That said, it won’t matter if you use an air fryer, a toaster oven, a full oven, or a convection oven to reheat your wings. They will turn out the best when done this way because it allows for even and thorough heating, which helps retain the juicy and tender texture while ensuring they are fully heated.
