Wings in our home are meant for any time of year. While some like to whip these up for their game day appetizers, or holiday treat, we make these throughout the year. They are a savory treat and because of the Ninja Foodi, making homemade crispy wings is a breeze these days. I start with frozen wings, and before you know it, you have wings that taste better than ordering takeout from your favorite wing shop.
4 Ingredient Ninja Foodi Crispy Wings
Yep! Four ingredients are all that is required for quick and easy wings made at home. The Ninja Foodi offers a pressure cooker feature along with a crisping feature. That makes this device the must-have item for making wings. Now, you can use an Instant Pot as well, just toss the wings in the oven to crisp up when done.
The Instant Pot feature on the Foodi will cook your chicken quickly, meaning you can use frozen chicken, without needing to thaw. Then once you have your wings cooked, you swap lids and use the Air Fryer crisping lid. This is what is going to give your wings that crispy outside while leaving the chicken moist and flavorful.

Can I do this with frozen chicken wings?
yes mine were frozen
The Foodi is something I didn’t end up getting. I have so many Ninja products and then cheated on them with the Instant Pot – don’t tell them haha! I had no idea what the big difference was between the two but I had got the Instant Pot as a gift and enjoy it greatly. Now I question if I should break down at some point and get the Foodie too.
We all have our different favorite sauces so usually we add the sauce on our plates, so it is nice to see a recipe that adds the sauce at the end. I love it hot and everybody has their own level of heat. Wings is something I never thought to make in the IP, going to try them tho 🙂
What if your wings aren’t frozen?
Same amount of time
Can fresh, not frozen, wings be used? Same temp? Same cooking time?
Love Love Love this recipe.Thank You So Much….Donna
Am I taking the water out between pressure and air frying?
My ninja intimidates me but I love wings so when I came across your easy to follow recipe I had to try it. Needless to say your recipe is now saved to my Favorites. They were absolutely perfect as was your guidance. Cheers to you. 😋
