Chicken Wings In Ninja Foodi

If you have been a Recipe This reader for a while, you will know that I am obsessed with chicken wings. I was the first to show people how to cook air fryer frozen chicken wings, I love to make instant pot frozen chicken wings, and I have an addiction to TGI Friday’s boneless chicken wings.

But I wanted to see how chicken wings in the Ninja Foodi would compare to chicken wings using a traditional air fryer.

After all, I notice that the Ninja Foodi air fryer is a few minutes slower, but the Ninja Foodi is much easier to clean.

With the mess that chicken wings can make I was keen to do a comparison.

I went to the butchers and ordered a big bag of marinated chicken wings. They were smothered in barbecue sauce and ideal for my experiment.

When I arrived home, I separated the bag of barbecue wings into two bags. One bag would head to the freezer so that I could cook for you frozen wings and the other batch would remain thawed for traditional chicken wings.

They would both be loaded into the Ninja Foodi air fryer and I would compare notes.

Can You Air Fry Frozen Chicken Wings?

Let’s start with the question I always get asked when I talk about frozen chicken wings and that is, is it safe and can you even do it?

Yes, it is perfectly safe.

It wouldn’t be safe to do in the Ninja Foodi using the slow cooker function because it doesn’t get hot enough, but either the air fryer or the pressure cooker will do an amazing job.

Fresh Wings In Ninja Foodi

Fresh wings in the Ninja Foodi are the easiest. Just because you don’t have to worry about them being frozen and can dump the fresh chicken wings into the Ninja Foodi and let your magical gadget do the hard work!

You can also use any marinade or dry rub that you want.

As you know, we got BBQ chicken wings from the butchers, but you can use any flavouring. For example, my favourite is Chinese like our air fryer Chinese chicken wings recipe.

If you follow a low carb diet, then you could use a lemon pepper rub and then follow the same cook times as we have done.

Frozen Wings In Ninja Foodi

If you would like to do frozen wings in the Ninja Foodi you just have to change it up a little if they are stuck together.

I find that often chicken wings will be like this if frozen:

Instead of getting angry and trying to separate them with every kitchen tool you can find, you can air fry them for a short time and then they will easily separate and then continue with the cooking.

How To Cook Chicken Wings In Ninja Foodi?

If you want to cook wings in the Ninja Foodi this is how you do it:

  1. Place chicken wings in the air fryer basket.
  2. Place the air fryer lid on the Ninja.
  3. Air fry + turn.
  4. Air fry + serve.

My Ninja Foodi Chicken Wings Verdict

After trying both Ninja Foodi fresh and frozen chicken wings, I didn’t notice any difference.

Both frozen and fresh tasted delicious and the cook time wasn’t much different.

If you have surplus chicken wings, I recommend that you freeze them for later and then cook frozen chicken wings in the Ninja Foodi.

It is ideal for when you have a special supermarket deal on wings or for when you have too many in and know you won’t use them all by the use by date.

Notes

Crispy. If your chicken wings are not crispy enough spray with some extra virgin olive oil and cook for a further 3 minutes.
Frozen. If cooking frozen chicken wings cook for 10 minutes at 160c/320f, separate and turn, then cook for a further 12 minutes at 180c/360f. Note that it needs a lower temperature to allow your chicken wings to thaw and not get dry.
Brush. If you have extra sauce, brush it over your chicken wings after cooking.
Reheat. If you have spare chicken wings, then we also have a quick guide showing you how to reheat chicken wings in the air fryer.
