Of course they can be! Reheat chicken wings in the Oven at 350 degrees. Place in a lined baking dish and bake for 15 mins. Add additional Sauce and enjoy!

How many BBQ Chicken Wings can you cook in an Air Fryer?

I like to keep use my Air Fryer to crisp the outside of the Chicken Wings once it’s been cooked in the Pressure Cooker. It’s important to keep it to a single layer in the Air Fryer. I can crips 10-12 small Chicken Wings in the Air Fryer and it’s perfect. I will turn the Chicken Wings over to crisp both sides.
