How to Reheat Bone-in Wings in an Air Fryer

Reheating bone-in chicken wings is both easy and fast when using your air fryer:

  1. Preheat the air fryer to 360 degrees.
  2. You will want to take your leftover wings out of the fridge and bring to room temperature before you put them in your air fryer basket.
  3. Place the wings in an even layer in the basket.
  4. If you are heating multiple batches, heat similar sizes together so they cook evenly.

How Long to Reheat Wings in an Air Fryer

  • Start by setting the timer to 5 minutes, and flip halfway through so they crisp evenly.
  • How long you need to reheat wings in an air fryer will vary by model, so be sure to use a meat thermometer to ensure the inside of your wings has reached 165 degrees.

How to Reheat Boneless Wings in an Air Fryer

When figuring out how best to reheat boneless wings in an air fryer, consider that they have a breading as opposed to skin. To ensure your boneless wings are reheated optimally:

  • Use a “short-burst” method of cooking by reheating for just 3 minutes at 400 degrees.
  • To enhance crispiness, spread your chicken evenly in the basket and spray with olive oil spray before heating.

What to Eat with Chicken Wings

We like to think there is no wrong answer of what to eat with chicken wings! If you need ideas, consider these tasty sides to earn even more rewards when you snap your receipts with Fetch:

  • For a fresh addition to your plate, chop some celery and carrot sticks to eat with classic Hidden Valley Ranch. Any fresh veggies you have on-hand would work (everything’s better with Ranch).
  • Go all-in on game-day foods with onion rings and french fries since your air fryer is already preheated!
  • Our appetites run hot and cold, so apply that to pasta and go for gooey macaroni or a cold pasta salad.
  • Keep it simple, silly, and grab your favorite snacks–we love Lay’s and Doritos.
