4 common approaches to reheating your Wingstop wings (thank me later)

1. Reheating Wings in the Microwave 


If you are looking for the most efficient method to reheat Wingstop wings in the microwave, you have come to the right place. The following is a rundown of the procedure that I use to reheat Wingstop wings in the microwave…




  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

  • Prepare a dish that is safe for use in the microwave by lining it with a damp paper towel (to absorb excess moisture).

  • After placing the chicken on the dish, cover it with a second layer of the damp paper towel.

  • Put the wings in the microwave for about two minutes, or until they reach the desired level of warmth, and then remove them. BE CAREFUL NOT TO OVERHEAT. This will result in them being drier.

  • After cooking in the microwave, remove the wings and arrange them on a baking sheet.

  • Put in the oven and set the temperature to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

  • After approximately a minute of cooking on one side, turn it over and put it back in the oven.

  • Continue to cook for one more minute, remove them from the oven, then serve.


2. Reheating Wingstop Wings in a Pan with Butter and Olive Oil


When you want to reheat hot wings or wings that you purchased from WingStop, there is one method that you may utilize, and that is the good old-fashioned burner and frying pan method.

If you are more of a hands-on kitchen pro (like I am) and prefer to be engaged when you are wings, then this may be the best method to go about it.


In addition, the procedure is not overly complicated and takes no more than roughly ten minutes to complete…




  • Take the wings out of the refrigerator and allow them to sit at room temperature for a few minutes after removing them from the cold.

  • Put the frying pan on the highest possible setting on the burner.

  • First, add the oil, then the wings.

  • Fry the wings for two to three minutes, making sure to toss them a few times so that they brown evenly on all sides.

  • Take the wings out of the oil once they have achieved a golden color.
    Give them time to cool & serve.


3. Reheating Wings in the Oven: Step-by-Step Instructions


It is to your advantage that this method is the first one that you are reading about because both of our experts believe that the oven is the finest way to reheat Wingstop chicken wings or any other sort of wings.


Using this technique will give you an exterior that is nicely browned and crisp, while maintaining an interior that is juicy and full of moisture.

If you are concerned about your wings becoming dry, you might try spritzing them with water in order to keep them from drying out completely.


The entire time needed to reheat chicken wings in the oven is approximately ten to twelve minutes, in case you were wondering how long it takes to do so.




  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

  • Remove any wings that have been left over from the refrigerator and allow them to come to room temperature for about 15 minutes.

  • Spray some non-stick cooking spray on a sheet pan, often known as a cookie sheet. You are able to do this while your wings are acclimating to the temperature of the room.

  • Place the wings approximately an inch apart from one another.

  • They should be heated for approximately five to six minutes on one side, after which they should be flipped and heated for an additional five to six minutes.

  • Make sure that the interior temperature reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit by using a thermometer to examine it.


4. Under the Broiler


An additional method for cooking boneless wings is to use the broiler…




1. Position a wire rack inside the oven approximately 10 inches away from the heating element, and then turn the broiler up to its highest setting. It is recommended that you wait around 15 minutes before adding the wings to the dish.

2. While you are waiting for the temperature in the broiler to reach the ideal setting, prepare a baking sheet by lining it with aluminum foil. Place the wings on the sheet in a single layer and make sure that none of the individual wings are touching each other.

3. Place the baking sheet on the rack inside the oven and broil for approximately 5 to 6 minutes. After turning the wings over with a set of heatproof tongs, place the baking sheet back in the oven and broil the wings for approximately 5 minutes more, or until their internal temperature reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit.

4. Take the wings out of the oven and place them on a platter that has been lined with paper towels. Allow them to cool for a few minutes. After you have coated them with sauce and placed them on a clean tray, you may then enjoy them.


How Should Chicken Wings Be Stored?

It is just as vital to properly store your wings as it is to reheat them in the appropriate manner. The chicken wings that you purchase from Wingstop can be kept in the refrigerator for up to four days.


When storing the wings, choose a container that can be sealed, and after placing them in the refrigerator, keep the lid off of the container until the temperature has dropped below 40 degrees Fahrenheit.


After that, cover it with a lid, and consume it within the next four days. In addition, ensure that the food is refrigerated within two hours of the reheating time.


If the food is left out for too long, bacteria can begin to multiply and cause foodborne illness. When your wings have been exposed to the sun for more than an hour, you must consume them (probably not too difficult if they are delicious).


If, after an hour, they have not been moved, they should be returned to the refrigerator in order to have the best chance of preventing the growth of bacteria. If you wish to preserve wings by freezing them, you can do so for up to six months by putting them in the freezer.

Because a temperature of 0 degrees Fahrenheit inhibits the growth of bacteria, freezing conditions are great for extending their lifespan.


After a period of six months, the wings will still be edible; however, both their flavor and texture will have deteriorated, so it is recommended that you avoid eating them.

Turn the oven temperature up to 350 degrees. After lining a baking sheet or pan with foil, set the wings out to bake on the prepared surface. Bake them for 15 minutes, or until they have reached the desired degree of doneness.


Final Thoughts

So, class, what did we learn today? We now know that to reheat wings from Wingstop, you need to heat the oven to 350 degrees & spread Wingstop wings on a baking sheet.


Reheat the wings in the oven for 10–20 minutes, or until a meat thermometer reads 165 degrees. Also, it’s just as important to store your wings the right way as it is to reheat them the right way.


When you buy chicken wings from Wingstop, you can keep them in the fridge for up to four days. Choose a container that can be sealed to store the wings, and after putting them in the fridge, leave the lid off until the temperature drops below 40 degrees Fahrenheit.


Then, put a lid on it, and eat it within the next four days. Also, make sure the food is put in the fridge no more than two hours before the reheating time.


If food is left out for too long, bacteria can start to grow and spread, which can make you sick. When your wings have been in the sun for over an hour, you have to eat them (probably not too difficult if they are delicious).


Enjoy the rest of your day, always stay safe, and treat others with kindness & respect. Until next time!
