What is the best way to reheat chicken wings? Using your air fryer to reheat chicken wings is the best way to get chicken wings that are crispy on the outside and tender on the inside making them good as new!

In fact, you can use your air fryer to reheat food of any kind including meats like steak, vegetables, appetizers, or pizza!

The air fryer is a small convection oven that evenly distributes hot circulating air around the food it’s cooking. This makes a crust on the outside without the use of excess oil. The food gets cooked evenly and it takes much less time than it would take using other methods.

Reheating cooked chicken wings in the air fryer is a good idea because they will retain their moisture and stay tender on the inside while getting crispy on the outside.

πŸ—How To Reheat Chicken Wings In Air Fryer

Let the chicken wings rest: Remove your chicken wings from the fridge for 10-15 minutes resting on a plate at room temperature. This helps the muscle fibers “relax” so they are not exposed right from hot to cold which could make them dry and tough.

Preheat the air fryer: During the last 5 minutes of resting time, turn your air fryer to 350F and preheat for 3-5 minutes.

Add chicken wings to the air fryer basket: In a single layer, add your chicken wings to the bottom of the air fryer basket and set the timer for 8 minutes.

Flip halfway: At the 4-minute mark, check your chicken wings for doneness. You can then decide to cook for the additional 3-5 minutes or longer depending on how crispy you like your chicken wings keeping in mind that you don’t want to dry them out.

Remove and serve: Remove your chicken wings with tongs, then serve with your favorite dipping sauces!

πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ³Tips For Reheating Chicken Wings

  1. Letting the chicken wings “temp out” at room temperature is a good way to make sure that the pork chop doesn’t get dry or tight. This is because when meat goes from a very cold environment to a hot one, the muscle fibers tend to contract and tighten up.
  2. If your wings have a sweet or sticky sauce, you may want to put a layer of foil down before reheating them to make sure the sugar in the sauce doesn’t become too sticky or burn and get stuck on the air fryer basket.
  3. The reheating time is completely dependent on how thick your chicken wings are. This time and temperature will reheat average-sized chicken wings in 6 minutes but larger ones may need 8-10 minutes.
  4. If you like your chicken wings extra crispy on the outside, spray with a light coating of oil or cooking spray. You can also add additional seasonings at this time.
  5. The proper safe internal temperature for chicken is 165F. If you’re not sure if your chicken wings are cooked through, use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature. Just insert it into the thickest part of the chicken wing and wait a few seconds.
  6. If you’re very concerned about dry chicken wings, you can wrap them tightly in foil before reheating. This won’t give them a browned outside, but it will trap in all of the moisture while reheating.
  7. Got breaded chicken wings? You can reheat breaded chicken wings in the air fryer the exact same way, just make sure the breading does not become browned or burned.
