Why are air-fried chicken wings the BEST?
- Admittedly, chicken wings aren't the healthiest thing to eat! However, they're loved by millions because they simply taste delicious and are always popular as party food.
- Not only that, they're so versatile. You can cook a batch of chicken wings and toss them in different sauces for completely different taste experiences!
- Cooking chicken wings in an air fryer is certainly a healthier option than cooking them in oil! Your air fryer is like a mini convection oven. The fat renders off, leaving crispy skin and juicy meat.
- Another advantage? An air fryer is very easy to clean! A soak in soapy water and a quick wipe and it's ready for next time. No messy oil or sticky baking pans to deal with.

How to store chicken wings
Be "food safe!" Don't leave cooked chicken wings at room temperature for more than 2 hours. Refrigerate them in a covered container.
You can easily reheat them in your air fryer at 390°F. to 400°F. for about 5 minutes.
Can I freeze cooked wings?
Yes! I lay them out on a baking sheet, freeze them separately, and then pack them into an airtight freezer bag or covered container. They will last for up to 3 months or more.
Chicken wings can still taste great when reheated. If you've frozen the cooked wings, thaw them in the refrigerator overnight, then let them sit at room temperature for 5 minutes. Place them in the air fryer in a single layer so they will reheat evenly. You may have to do this in batches if you have a small air fryer.
Set the temperature to 390°F. or 400°F. and reheat for 5 minutes or more. Remove from the basket, let cool slightly and enjoy!
