Best Chicken Wing’s Ever! From Instant Pot to Oven/Grill to Table in Under an Hour!

Quick post for you today! I posted this in an Instant Pot group on Facebook and want to share it with everyone here too.

Instant Pot Chicken Wings

If you have never had chicken wings in the Instant Pot head to your butcher shop #Milosmeats is the best in Toledo) and get some! I cooked about two pounds. We get them with drummies, wings and tips all attached.

Wings on racks in Instant Pot

I add a cup of water and a smashed garlic clove to the bottom of the pot. I use the rack that came with the IP with my stacking egg racks and layer them with wings. I season them with a variety of smoked salt, pepper, and/or Webber seasonings. Whatever you like really. Pressure cook on high for six minutes (thawed wings) and let sit for about five minutes and release. While they are sitting I heat up the grill or oven/broiler to high heat. Line a sheet pan with non-stick Reynolds wrap foil. (That stuff is amazing!!! You can get it at the grocery or online)

I like to make hot-wing sauce but you can use whatever sauce you like, barbecue or whatever! For my hot wing sauce I use a large bowl and mix a few TB sriracha, about a cup of Franks Hot Sauce, 1 TB brown sugar, 1/2 C melted butter, 3 TB honey (Mike’s hot honey is good) and 1/2 ts granulated garlic. Taste and add more sugar and honey or hot sauce(s) to your liking. Set aside half the sauce.

*When the wings are done, save the broth in the bottom of the IP, strain it and use it to make rice or quinoa, whatever or freeze it. You’ll be amazed at how flavorful it is!

Toss the cooked wings a few at a time in the sauce and place on the foil-lined sheet. Broil or bake or grill until browned. 10-20 minutes, but keep an eye on them! If you are broiling, they may only take a few minutes per side! You might want to flip them after a few minutes depending on your cooking method. *If you like that crispy char, drizzle some honey over the tops, just a bit!

When they are nicely browned or have some of that tasty char on them, remove from heat and toss with sauce again if you like them extra saucy!

Instant Pot Hot Wings with Zoodles

(I have used this method with a frozen chunk of wings. The wings in the middle of the chunk required some extra time in the IP after I removed the outer layer(s) of wings, just be careful with the raw chicken. They are definitely easier from thawed. But possible from frozen, though I don’t recommend it.)

I haven’t tried ribs in the IP yet but if they come out half as good as IP wings, I’m definitely going too!

I hope you try these wings. I’ll update the recipe with nutritional data soon!

I’m still trying out new website templates and working to fix some issues. Thanks for your patience!

    1. Definitely give it a go! I never liked how long you had to cook them or fry them so that they weren’t chewy. The Instant Pot recipe version is so much better. And you get chicken stock/broth to use later. I also think a lot of the fat drips off too. I like them fall of the bone tender and this definitely does it!

    2. Sounds perfect! I was so thankful that we had the InstantPot back when our oven unexpectedly broke on us. We could still make practically anything, apparently even wings!
