Chicken wings are a favorite in our home, and when the football game is on, wings are a must. There is something about those juicy wings that just scream football.

Easy Ninja Foodi or Instant Pot Crispy Chicken Wings

I used my Ninja Foodi for these wings, but you can also use your Instant Pot then toss the wings into the oven to crisp up the skin when done.

 

The Ninja Foodi does it all, cooks the wings under pressure to help lock in moisture, then switch to the crisping lid to get your wings nice and crispy on the outside but leave the juicy center! Trust me these wings are outstanding!

Crispy Chicken Wings Is The Perfect Game Day Finger Food

I love using Season all seasoning on my wings, it offers the right amount of flavor. Then sit out all your favorite dipping sauces and let people choose what to dip in.

Blue cheese dressing, the classic buffalo wing sauce, or even ranch or barbecue. Or if you are like some you won’t even need the sauce cause these beauties are magical enough on their own!

How Do I Make Crispy Wings

Follow my recipe below to make the ultimate crispy wings. The process is quick and painless and in no time you have fresh hot and juicy crispy wings.

The Best Crispy Chicken Wings

You got to try this recipe and see how you all like it! Since I tried making crispy chicken wings in my Ninja Foodi we rarely buy them anymore.

Making homemade crispy wings is so much more affordable and you can create a variety of flavors if you want to give you different elements of flavor. Once you get the method down on making them, venture out and try new seasonings like a bbq rub, lemon pepper, buffalo seasoned and more.

3 Appetizers Back to Back in Ninja Foodi

I actually made 3 appetizers in one sitting back to back in my Ninja Foodi! I made deviled eggs, these crispy wings, and even a chicken taco dip.

The best part is I didn’t have to clean my pot in between use. It saved me so much time and within no time I had three delicious and easy game day appetizers ready to serve up to family and friends.  

 

If you are like me and want to maximize your time in the kitchen, consider making these other 2 appetizers as well. Or do one of the other two if you don’t want all three. Then once your fully done cooking you have only one cleanup.

If you use frozen wings do you alter the amount of liquid you use at all?

Have used pressure cook twice and added extra liquid for these and they still burnt. They are in the air fryer for phase two . I hope this works. Anyone else have this problem

My boyfriend and I are HOOKED on this recipe! We just got the Ninja Foodi and had no idea how to use it/if we'd like it. He just knew he wasn't going to like the wings!... we've cooked them 3 times this week and it's only Thursday! HOWEVER, we weren't able to find any wings tonight, so we are going to try drum sticks! Do you think the cooking time will be the same?!
