Can you cook frozen chicken in the Ninja Foodi?

I want to answer this question right away – YES! You can cook frozen chicken in your Ninja Foodi. In fact, it’s one of my favorite features.

To save even more time, I started out with a Perdue package that was already pre-seasoned which meant that I didn’t have to fuss around online looking for a combination of herbs that would work for chicken wing seasoning. In case you want to buy the exact bag I did, info is below. 

This Ninja Foodi chicken wings recipe doesn’t require you to go crazy! I promise! Three ingredients and no worries. It just doesn’t get any easier than that.

But if you need to get creative on your own because you don’t have a preseasoned chicken wing bag on hand, use what you have as far as the seasoning is concerned and call it a day.

A little salt, pepper, and garlic will do. Don’t overthink it! The Ninja Foodi pressure cooker / air fryer duo makes anything taste great. I am telling you! 

I also want to note that these frozen chicken wings would also make an incredible football Sunday appetizer!! If you are having a game day party and don’t know what to serve to your guests, think about this recipe!!

This week, I made this easy Ninja Foodi recipe as part of an easy family dinner and served french fries and broccoli. But you can also include it as part of a full line of apps to hand out as finger food for guests.

From Frozen To Ready

More times than not, families keep their chicken wings frozen and don’t remember to thaw them out beforehand and it’s always a struggle during dinnertime getting the meat down to the right temperate to cook. What? It can’t just be me! 

Well, with the Ninja Foodi you can defrost your chicken wings in about 5 minutes thanks to the pressure cooker setting. I have to admit that this entire machine fascinates me. Your Ninja Foodi chicken wings can be ready in no time!

I am just getting used to all the bells and whistles and cannot get over all of the incredible things you can do with just one machine. But seriously, if you just buy the machine to make a few recipes including my Ninja Foodi chicken wings one… you will be ahead of the GAME.

OK! Let’s get back to the recipe.

How do you cook frozen wings in Ninja Foodi?

Pour 1/2 cup of water to the bottom of your cooking base and then add in your air fryer basket. Place your frozen pieces into the basket. One on top of the other. Put your pressure cooker top onto the Ninja Foodie and close the top. 

Ninja Foodi recipe

Set the pressure cooker to HI and the timer for 5 minutes. Once complete, release steam and open up the pressure cooker top. 

Grab a paper towel and dab the chicken to try to get some of the moisture off all of the pieces. Some people say you don’t have to do this, but it literally takes 5 seconds. I added a video to show you how I do this. I use my tongs to make sure I don’t get too close to the basket.

For the rest of the recipe, we will air fry. Lightly spray your chicken wing pieces with some cooking spray. Some people use olive oil spray… but to be honest with you – I didn’t have a misto sprayer on hand! I need to buy one now! 

Set your machine to Air Fry, 390 for 20 minutes and close the top. At the halfway point, you need to open up your lid and flip the pieces with your tongs. 

Then close the lid and finish out the remainder of the time. That is literally all you have to do.

How long does it take for ninja Foodi to pressurize?

As part of your recipe, you have to add some time in to include pressurizing. This can between 8-10 minutes. The Ninja Foodi has to heat the water to create the steam needed to come under pressure. During this time, you may see steam escaping from the black valve and/or the red button on the top of the lid.

Can you stack wings in Air fryer?

Yes! You can – just be sure that you toss them around frequently to ensure that each of them is getting CRISP. The alternative is to cook in batches.

How do you use Ninja Foodi air crisp?

There are so many different ways that I use the Ninja Foodi air crisp. Besides chicken wings, I have made bacon, shrimp, steak, asparagus, onion rings, and several desserts. This truly is a versatile machine.

How do you reheat wings in Ninja Foodi?

You can reheat chicken wings in the Ninja Foodi as well! Set the temperature on HI and cook for 4 minutes.
