Easy Peasy Air Fryer Recipe for Frozen Wings

Do you have frozen wings that you want to cook quickly without having to deal with the mess of deep-frying? Look no further than your trusty air fryer! Not only does it quickly cook frozen wings, it also gives them that crispy texture that we all love and crave! In this blog post, we’ll walk you through the steps of cooking your frozen wings in an air fryer so you can enjoy a delicious and effortless meal in no time.

Are All Frozen Wings the Same?

Before delving into the recipe, it’s important to note that not all frozen wings are the same. Some may have been pre-cooked while others may be raw. Make sure to read the packaging before purchasing to ensure that you get the correct type of frozen wings for your recipe. This recipe is focused on non-cooked frozen wings.


  • Frozen chicken wings

  • Salt

  • Garlic powder

  • Onion powder

  • Paprika

  • Cooking spray

Steps to Cook Frozen Wings in an Air Fryer:

  1. Preheat your air fryer to 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 5 minutes.

  2. While the air fryer is preheating, place your frozen wings on a plate and season them with salt, garlic powder, onion powder, and paprika. Mix well until all the wings are coated with the seasoning.

  3. Once the air fryer has preheated, open the basket and spray it with cooking spray to prevent the wings from sticking.

  4. Arrange the seasoned frozen wings in a single layer inside the air fryer basket. It’s important not to overcrowd the basket as this will prevent the wings from cooking evenly.

  5. Close the air fryer basket and set the timer for 25-30 minutes. Flip the wings halfway through cooking.

  6. Once the wings are fully cooked and crispy, remove them from the air fryer and allow them to cool for a few minutes before serving.

Pro Tips and Variations:

  • For extra crispy wings, coat your wings with a thin layer of baking powder before seasoning them. This helps to draw out the excess moisture from the wings, resulting in a crispy texture.

  • To make different flavored wings, experiment with different seasonings. You could use Cajun seasoning, Italian seasoning, or even a sweet and spicy flavor mix.

  • If you want to make saucy wings, toss cooked wings in your favorite sauce before serving.

Air fryer frozen wings are a convenient and tasty meal option for those busy weeknights. By following these simple steps, you can enjoy crispy and delicious wings without the mess of deep-frying. As always, feel free to experiment with different seasoning combinations and sauces to make this recipe your own!
