Here’s The Answer To How To Bake Turkey Wings In Air Fryer
Turkey wings are a delicious and easy way to enjoy all the flavors of turkey without all the hassle. And when you bake them in an air fryer, they’re even easier.
The use of air fryers can help you cook food quickly and consistently. And when you’re cooking turkey wings, they’re even better.
The high heat of the air fryer helps to crisp up the skin on the wings while keeping the meat juicy and tender.
- Your air fryer should be preheated to 375 degrees.
- Place the turkey wings in the basket of the air fryer. To ensure even cooking, make sure they are not touching.
- Cook for 20 minutes, flipping once halfway through cooking.
- Remove from the air fryer and enjoy!
Preheat Your Air Fryer To 375 Degrees Fahrenheit
You’ll want to give the basket a few minutes to reheat, but you don’t need to wait for the whole unit to heat up. This can take anywhere from 30 seconds for a small air fryer (3 quarts) to 10 minutes for larger units (6 quarts or more).
Once your turkey has been put in place, set your machine’s temperature at 375 degrees Fahrenheit and let it cook for about 30 minutes before checking its progress with a meat thermometer.
Keep an eye on it throughout this time as different models cook differently depending on their size—a smaller one might be done sooner than a larger one with more surface area exposed directly under heat.
Season Your Turkey Wings With Salt, Pepper, And Any Other Desired Spices
Like you’d season a piece of chicken, you can season your turkey wings with salt and pepper. Seasoning is important because it enhances the flavor of the meat.
I also like to add other spices, such as paprika or cayenne pepper. If you prefer herbs to spice, try thyme or rosemary.
Place The Wings In The Air Fryer Basket, Making Sure They Are Not Touching Each Other
It is imperative to ensure the wings are not touching each other in the air fryer basket. A rack or a few paper towels will do the trick, and if you don’t have either of those things lying around, then no worries.
Just be sure to get some sort of barrier between your wings, so they don’t stick together while they cook.
Once they are set up in their little nests (or whatever), pop that bad boy into your air fryer for about 20 minutes at 400°F on convection mode (if you have it).
It may take 10-15 minutes longer, depending on how high your temperature is and how big your wings are—but trust me, it’s worth it.
Cook For 15 Minutes, Then Flip The Wings Over And Cook For An Additional 15 Minutes
Once you’re in the air fryer, cook for 15 minutes, flip the wings over and cook for an additional 15 minutes.
The cooking time will depend on the size of your wings and how many you are cooking at once. If you need to do multiple batches, let your air fryer cool down between uses to prevent overheating.
While you are cooking them in the air fryer, check on them every so often to monitor how well they are browning and make sure that juices are not pooling up around them (a sign that they might be done), and if everything seems good, take a look at those beautiful bones.
When you think they might be done (at least 10 minutes before), check on their color by removing one wing from the basket with tongs or gloves and inspecting its meatiness.
