How To Cook Frozen Chicken Wings in Ninja Speedi

It’s very easy to cook frozen chicken in Ninja Speedi without thawing, and it’s a set and forget way of making them.

Let me show you how.

Add 1/2 cup of water on Ninja Speedi inner pot.

Place crisper tray on bottom position.

Put the frozen chicken wings on top of the crisper tray.

Close the Ninja Speedi lid and turn the unit on.

Flip the switch to Rapid Cooker and select STEAM & CRISP.

Set temperature to 450F (or 230C).

Set timer to 15 minutes and press Start.

Optionally, flip half way for even crisping. But if you don’t want to come back mid-way to flip, it’s still fine.

When cooking is complete, open the lid and remove the crispy chicken wings.

Can You Use Speedi Recipe on the Ninja Combi?

With the Ninja Combi All-in-One Multicooker, Oven and Air Fryer, you might be wondering if Ninja Speedi recipes will work for the Combi as well.

I don’t have a Ninja Combi, but, on researching the functionalities and customer feedbacks who have both, here are my findings:

  • Ninja Combi seems to be just an updated version of the Ninja Speedi.
  • The Combi basically has the same features as Ninja Speedi.
  • It’s just that Ninja Combi is bigger and in a oven-style, loading from the front instead of the top.
  • Instead of Speedi Meals, you use Combi Meals function.
  • The Speedi has inner pot and crisper tray and the Ninja Combi has a bottom pan and bake tray for the two-level cooking.
  • Whereas the Speedi is good cooking meals for 1-2 people, the Combi is good for families and parties.
  • Customers who have used both Speedi and Combi say the recipes are interchangeable because of the same setup and features.

So it seems like Ninja Speedi Recipes can be Ninja Combi Recipes.

If you’ve tried a recipe in both Speedi and Combi, let me know your experience.
