Keeping cooked chicken wings in the freezer is a convenient way to have a snack or appetizer on hand when surprise guests arrive. You don't need to thaw frozen chicken wings prior to heating, though allowing wings to thaw reduces actual cooking time. The process of reheating the chicken wings is the same as if you were cooking them from scratch, only with wings already flavored to perfection and a reduced risk of foodborne illness.

Cooking in the Oven

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

Step 2

Place a layer of aluminum foil over a cookie sheet. Spray the cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray.

Step 3

Layer the wings in a single layer on the aluminum foil 1/2 inch apart.

Step 4

Cook frozen wings for 28 to 33 minutes and thawed wings for 21 to 24 minutes.

Cooking in the Microwave

Step 1

Lay chicken wings in a circle on a microwave-safe plate.

Step 2

Set microwave on high. This is the default setting for most microwaves.

Step 3

Turn microwave on for seven to nine minutes for frozen wings. Thawed wings cook for four to five minutes. If your microwave doesn't rotate, turn the wings 1/4 turn halfway through cooking time to ensure complete cooking.

Step 4

Let wings sit for one minute after microwaving. The wings and plate will be hot. Use an oven mitt to remove.

Pizza Oven Preparation

Step 1

Heat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

Step 2

Spray baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray.

Step 3

Lay frozen wings on baking sheet.

Step 4

Put baking sheet in pizza oven for 8 to 10 minutes.
