Reheating Tip:

  • You guessed it, the air fryer is the perfect place to reheat buffalo chicken wings! Reheat at 380°F for three to five minutes at a time. Give them a nice flip in between each round. This ought to put them back in that crispy, “straight out of the fryer” state.

Storing Buffalo Chicken Wings


  • Refrigerating: Keep any leftover buffalo chicken wings from the air fryer refrigerated in an airtight container. They should remain fresh for three to five days if stored correctly.


  • Freezing: Spread out any leftover buffalo chicken wings from your air fryer on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper and freeze in a single layer. After that, put the entire baking sheet, uncovered, in the freezer. After the wings are completely frozen, store them for up to three months in a freezer-safe bag.
