Hot wings can be heated from frozen in the NuWave Oven.
- Spray the 4 inch rack with Pam spray.
- Place the wings on the 4 inch rack.
- Cook for 15 minutes on High Power.
- You can stop there, or for Extra Crispiness. Turn and cook 10 more minutes on High Power.
Note: Be sure to use Pam or some other cooking spray when cooking these Hot Wings in your NuWave Oven. If you don’t use a cooking spray, the hot wings will stick to the rack. And when you attempt to remove the hot wings from the oven, the skin with the hot sauce will remain stuck on the rack. Leaving you with hot wings that are missing skin on one side.
I’ve found the wings in the bag of this brand of hot wings vary greatly in size. But still 15 minutes works just find regardless the size of the 8 hot wings cooked. This cooks the skin of the smaller wings crispy, but larger wings would take longer cooking time, if you want them to have a crispy exterior.
These same heating instructions may work for other brands of frozen hot wings, if they are similar in size. These take longer to cook in a conventional oven. And a conventional oven requires pre-heating. The NuWave Oven does not require any pre-heating. So when considering the pre-heating aspects of a conventional oven, plus the cooking time. It’s obvious the NuWave oven is the best choice for heating frozen hot wings.
There’s no need to flip the hot wings while cooking them in the NuWave Oven. Unless you really want to ensure both sides are of equal crispness. I found the bottoms of the smaller wings had some crispness to them without any flipping. The NuWave Oven top rack cooks similar to a grill. Without all the hassle and effort involved in cooking on an actual grill.
