Ingredients

  • 2 pounds chicken wings & drumettes
  • ½ cup (125ml) BBQ Sauce (we used Sweet Baby Ray's Original BBQ Sauce)

Instructions

  • Pressure Cook Chicken Wings: Pour 1 cup (250ml) cold water in Instant Pot Pressure Cooker.

    Place a steamer basket in Instant Pot, then add chicken wings and drumettes in the steamer basket.

    Close lid and pressure cook at High Pressure for 5 minutes + Full Natural Release. Open the lid carefully.
  • Preheat Airfryer: While Instant Pot is naturally releasing, dial airfryer to 400°F and set the timer to 10 minutes.

    If Using Oven: While Instant Pot is naturally releasing, preheat oven to 450°F.
  • Pat Dry Chicken Wings: Remove wings and drumettes from Instant Pot. Pat them really dry with paper towels.
  • Apply Sauce and Place in Airfryer: In a large mixing bowl, toss wings and drumettes with ½ cup (125ml) BBQ sauce. Add chicken wings and drumettes in the airfryer basket. Airfry until sauce is glossy and caramelized (~5–10 mins).

    After 2 - 3 minutes, take out the airfryer basket, then give it a toss to make sure the chicken wings brown evenly.

    If Using Oven: Place chicken wings and drumettes in a single layer on a wire rack in a baking tray. Bake until the sauce is glossy and caramelize (~8–15 mins).

I love wings and I like how easy this method sounds! Would the same measurements work for an instant pot mini?

I’ve been using my air fryer for wings and was disappointed. This is the perfect combination. Juicy and crispy! I made enough for my husband to have leftovers for lunch, but we ending up eating those too. Thanks for a great recipe.

I’d like to try this for lunch today, but my wings are frozen. Can you use frozen chicken wings or should they be completely thawed?

Donna Mills

Have made these several times and they do not disappoint. Easy. Delicious. BOOM! ?5 stars

Karen

Hi, I love all your recipes so far. I’d like to make Buffalo wings so I thought I’d air fry them with no sauce after pressure cooking them and then toss them in the Buffalo sauce. Do you think that will work?

Lisa

I don’t have an air fryer so I need to finish the wings in my oven. Recipe says 450 degrees but my oven does go up to 550. Should I set to 450, 550 or broil to finish these? Also, is convection recommended?

By the way, love all your recipes! Thank you for posting this one too.

Lisa

I made these twice and finished the with convection broil. They were delicious. Thank you!5 stars
