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.

  • Preheat your air fryer to 350 F. While thats warming up, wash your fresh turkey wings and leave them out to dry. Next, measure out all of the spices, mix them together in a small bowl, then spray each turkey wing with olive oil using your handy dandy oil spray bottle.
  • Rub your spice mix liberally over each turkey wing, making sure you get all those folds and layers.
  • Set each turkey wing in your air fryer in a singular layer and bake them for 20 minutes on one side. Then flip each piece and continue cooking for 15-20 more minutes on the other side.
  • Use a quick-read meat thermometer to ensure the wings reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees F. Once its done, let it cool down on a paper towel placed inside a large bowl. Enjoy with a side dish or some homemade bbq sauce!

    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.
