Frequently Asked Questions About TGI Fridays Frozen Wings

Can You Put TGI Friday’s Wings In The Air Fryer?

You bet! The air fryer is a great way to make chicken wings. The high heat of the air fryer cooks the meat quickly and evenly, and the skin gets nice and crispy.

How Long Should I Cook Frozen Wings In The Air Fryer?

Cooking times and temperatures will vary based on air fryer model, how many wings you are cooking, and how crispy you like them.

That said, TGI Fridays frozen wings only need about 10 minutes in the air fryer at 400 degrees F. Flip them halfway and be sure to check on them every few minutes so they don’t overcook. Voila! You’ll have delicious, crispy chicken wings that are sure to please everyone at your next gathering.

What To Serve With TGI Friday’s Honey BBQ Chicken Wings

First, be sure to pair your TGI Friday’s wings with your favorite dipping sauce. You can even set out a variety for guests to choose from! If you’re looking for something a little more unusual, try serving the wings with a side of pineapple salsa or mango chutney. The sweetness of the fruit will complement the flavors of the honey BBQ sauce perfectly.

Crunchy vegetables like celery and carrot sticks are a popular side since they provide a refreshing contrast to the rich sauce of the honey BBQ wings. Alternatively, you could serve TGI Fridays frozen wings with a side of cooked rice or quinoa. The grains will absorb all of the delicious flavors from the sauce, making for a truly irresistible dish.
