Advances in modern science and technology have brought us many wondrous devices in the past several years such as the Perseverance Mars rover and the Ninja Foodi, which unlike the Perseverance Mars rover, is great for cooking chicken wings. How do I know this? Because I made some. Here’s what you need and how to do it.
STUFF YOU NEED
- Frozen chicken wings. Note that here I’m referring to plain, raw, no-frills frozen chicken wings. Not pre-made frozen chicken wings.
- Olive oil.
- Whatever spices and sauces you want your wings to taste like. These days I prefer a blend of black pepper, Sriracha sauce, and Blackstone Taco & Fajita seasoning.
HERE’S WHAT YOU DO
- Pour about 1 cup of water into the Ninja Foodi.
- Place the Ninja Foodi fryer basket into the Ninja Foodi.
- Put wings in single layer in the Ninja Foodi fryer basket. I can typically cram 6 – 8 wings in there.
- Attach the pressure cooker lid and cook on HI for 5 minutes.
- When done pressure cooking, release the pressure being careful not to burn your face off in the steam.
- Pat down the wings with a paper towel.
- Coat wings with a little bit of olive oil.
- Close air crisper lid and cook at 390 for 7 minutes.
- When done, open the lid and apply whatever spices and sauces you want, being sure to get the wings well coated on all sides.
- Close the air crisper lid and cook at 390 for another 7 – 8 minutes.
That’s it. When done, pull them out of the Ninja Foodi, put on a plate to cool, then devour.
