How Many Wings Can You Cook In Air Fryer
Because I used the racks I found I was able to place more wings into the air fryer. Now depending on the size of your wings and air fryer model will depend greatly how many you can fit.
Should I use my trays or my basket?
I have found that you will get the crispiest wings using the trays vs the basket.
Can You Stack Wings In Air Fryer Instant Vortex
I used the racks and did Wings that way. You can use multiple racks at a time. If you find the bottom set needs to be crispier, pull top rack and move bottom rack up.
How Long Does It Take To Cook Wings In Air Fryer
I have the time listed below in the recipe card. You want to ensure your chicken is fully cooked. I recommend cooking them in your Instant Pot to make sure they are cooked properly but if you would like to cook them completely in your vortex, use a meat thermometer to ensure it reaches proper temperature all the way through the wing.
Are Air Fryers Safe
Yes! An air fryer is a great alternative to deep frying. You get that crispy outside texture just by hot air circulating. You will use minimal oil to no oil depending on the recipe. It is mainly just spaying racks to prevent sticking.
Can I Double The Recipe
Absolutely! Make as many or as few as you would like with these wings. The biggest thing is to leave space between each wing. You do not want your wings to touch or you will end up with spots that are not crispy.
So batch cook and make sure there is space for air to circulate. Set the cook time long enough on your Vortex to keep cooking your wings without having to stop to reheat again. You can open the door to switch out racks as necessary so you can keep putting out new batches of wings.
How to Keep Wings Warm
If you are batch cooking your wings you can place cooked wings in a pan and lightly wrap in aluminum foil, and place in a 200 degree oven. This will keep the first wings warm while the rest get cooked.
How Long Will Wings Store
You can store them in the fridge for 3 days, or place in freezer bag and freeze up to 3 months. Wings are not as crispy Leftover but I think they still taste good!

I love to pressure cook my wings to ensure optimum juiciness before air crisping them. If you would like to cook your wings completely in your air fryer, see the notes section, on the recipe card, for the cooking directions.
- 12-24 Chicken Chicken Wingettes
- 1/2 Cup Chicken Broth or Water
- Season All
- 1/4 Cup melted butter
- Place your wingettes into your instant pot. (air fry only directions in the notes)
- Add broth.
- Close the pressure cooking lid, make sure it’s in the sealing position and turn toggle to seal.
- Press Pressure (it should automatically set to HIGH pressure). Set time to 8 minutes. Hit START.
- Once wingettes are done, do a quick release. Remove them and place on the trays ( I put a paper plate underneath to catch some of the juice from your wings). Dump leftover broth or water that is left in your pot.
- Place the drip pan in the bottom of the cooking chamber. Using the display panel, touch AIR FRY then adjust the temp to 380 degrees, set the time to 12 minutes, touch START.
- Baste melted butter over the wings.
- Give a good sprinkle of Season All.
- When the display indicates “Add Food” place both racks of wings/wingettes inside. Close the door and turn on the light to watch the top rack that they do not over crisp.
- My top rack took about 7 min to crisp beautifully. I removed the top rack, moved the bottom rack to the top and continued to crisp those for a few more minutes until they were perfect.
**If you do not have an instant pot or want to pressure cook your wings first. Adjust your cook time to 10-12 minutes per side.
**If your wings are frozen, Add at least 5 minutes cook time.
