But cook them in the air fryer and develop a love for air fryer chicken wings and it is a life changer.

But most of the time you can cook air fryer chicken wings without any oil at all.

How Long To Cook Frozen Chicken Wings In Air Fryer? On average air fryer chicken wings take just 12 minutes to cook at 180c/360f.This makes it easy to remember without having to print out lots of air fryer chicken wings recipes.
