Which Air Fryer do I use?
You can use any conventional air fryer in the market though you might have to do more batches if your air fryer is small.
My favorite brand is Ninja Air Fryer. You can also use a Ninja Foodi, which Ive really come to love as it crisps up so fast! Of course, you can use any air fryer you have in your kitchen.
Store any leftover turkey wings in an airtight container in the fridge. These can keep for up to 4 days after you cook them. I like to freeze the turkey wings in a freezer plastic bag as they keep longer. Be sure to let the wings thaw for a few hours or overnight before you reheat them again.
You can reheat the turkey wing pieces in the basket of your air fryer oven at 350F and cook for 5 minutes. Then increase the heat to 400F and cook for 5 more minutes to crisp up the skin.
These turkey wings can also be reheated in the oven. Just wrap them in aluminum foil and place them on a rimmed baking sheet with a wire rack. Set the oven to 275F for about 20 minutes.
How to Tell When the Turkey is Done
You will need to use a meat thermometer. Insert the meat thermometer into the thickest part of one the turkey wings. According to the USDA, Poultry must be cooked to a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees.
The texture is a lot similar to fried chicken wings. These have crispy skin. If you are looking for wings that fall off the bone, try my Baked Turkey Wings or Smothered Turkey Wings recipes.
Can I Use Frozen Turkey Wings?
I highly recommend using fresh turkey wings but if using frozen, make sure to let them thaw completely before air frying.
Absolutely, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and bake for 1 hour or until fully cooked through.
