Best Chicken Wings Ever, from your Instant Pot to oven or grill to your table in under an hour!
Quick post for you today! I posted these wings in an Instant Pot group on Facebook and want to share it with everyone here too.
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.
Instant Pot Wings
Add a cup of water and a smashed garlic clove to the bottom of the pot. Use the rack that came with the IP along 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. Pressure cook on high for six minutes (thawed wings) and let sit for about five minutes and release. While your Instant Pot is working, 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)
*When the wings are done in the IP, 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!
Easy Hot Wing SauceJump to Recipe
To a large mixing bowl, add:
- 2 tbsp Sriracha
- 6 tbsp Frank’s RedHot Original Cayenne Pepper Sauce
- 1 tbsp brown sugar
- ¼ cup unsalted butter melted
- 2 tbsp honey
- ¼ tsp Lawry’s coarse ground garlic powder with parsley
Taste and add more sugar and honey or hot sauce(s) to your liking. Set aside half the sauce.
Toss the cooked wings a few at a time in the sauce and place them on the foil-lined sheet. Broil, bake, or grill the wings until brown or about 10-20 minutes. 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. *If you like that crispy char, drizzle some honey over the tops, just a bit!
Can you cook frozen wings in the Instant Pot?
(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 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! If you love these Best Chicken Wings Ever made in your Instant Pot, you may love my Instant Pot Spinach and Meatballs!
