Can You Cook Frozen Wings In The Air Fryer?

You absolutely can cook frozen wings in the air fryer. Sometimes I like to pre-prep my air fryer lemon pepper wings by adding a marinade or seasonings to a freezer bag and popping my wings in.

When it comes to frozen wings you want to keep the same temperature, but up the cooking time about 5 min or until cooked through.

These cook up beautifully and the flavors really soak in from the marinade, made with lemon pepper seasoning, lemon juice and garlic powder so each bite is nice and juicy and bursting with flavor.

Marinating for at least 30 minutes in the refrigerator before you cook the wings really helps lock in all the great flavors. So they cook those flavors really pop, for that wow factor when you sink your teeth into them.

Can You Air Fry Leftover Chicken Wings?

To reheat chicken wings in your air fryer, preheat the air fryer to 400 F and air fry for about 10 minutes. Don’t leave them too long, you don’t want them to dry out.

Mind-Blowing Facts About Chicken Wings

I thought it might be fun to share some fun facts about chicken wings that you might not know about! From one chicken wing lover to another, enjoy!

Buffalo wings became pretty popular once the Buffalo Bills appeared in the Super Bowl for four consecutive times.

It is sad that buffalo wings were invented by accident. A lady in Buffalo NY got chicken wings instead of a chicken neck that she ordered, and the rest is history.

July 29th is National Chicken Wing Day for all who love a good chicken wing to celebrate. Whether you like them slathered in buffalo sauce, honey barbecue, or even these lemon pepper wings.

The world record of most chicken wings consumed in 26 minutes is 444 wings. Now that is one outstanding record!

Most people like to believe that Franks Red Hot Sauce was the first sauce to be used on chicken wings.

The average American consumes 90 chicken wings a year! Do you think you eat that many?? I’m sure I do lol.

Back in 2013, there was a chicken wing shortage, but thankfully all is well and no shortage is in sight now.
