How To Make Frozen Chicken Wings In the Air Fryer

Before you start cooking the chicken wings, make sure you spray the air fryer basket with a non-stick cooking spray to prevent sticking.

After the prep is done, place the frozen chicken wings in the air fryer basket in a single layer.

Cook the wings in the air fryer at 390F for 5 minutes.

Take out the air fryer basket and drain the liquids and oils from the bottom of the basket.

This is the perfect time to add your preferred seasoning to the wings. Make sure to season both sides!

  • Lemon Pepper
  • Spicy Cajun

I am also a BIG fan of dipping sauces. So much so, I actually make my own and have them on hand at all times to not only eat with the wings but also with chicken tenders or chicken legs.

What To Serve With Air Fried Chicken Wings

I don’t know about you but I can’t eat chicken wings without my celery and carrot sticks! My family is always torn between blue cheese or ranch dressing to dip the veggies so I try to always have them both on hand.

As far as sides go, what’s a plate of crispy chicken wings without air-fried french fries? You can also serve them with sweet potato fries if you don’t like to eat white potatoes.
