As a potato-maniac, this is definitely one of my childhood favorite homecooked meals. It’s so easy to eat, especially with rice.

I just love how the savory flavors are soaked through the wings, and I still couldn’t resist scooping all that deliciously creamy potatoes mashed gravy onto my hot bowl of rice. ohh yaasss!!

    1. Hi Char,

      Late Reply (We were on a trip to Asia)! Thank you for your question 🙂

      The potatoes will be softer. The cooking time will be roughly 10 minutes + 10 minutes natural release.

      Have fun cooking & please take care
      Jacky

    1. Hi Samantha,

      Late Reply (We were on a trip to Asia)! Thank you for your question 🙂

      I recommend adding an extra minute for drumsticks.

      Please take care & have fun cooking

    1. Hi Aileen,

      Hope you had a wonderful New Year 🙂
      Thank you so much for your kind words on the recipe!

      I recommend reducing the cooking time by 1 minute as the get up to pressure time will be longer.

      Happy New Year & please take care
      Jacky

  1. Recipe sounds delicious, wondering if maybe leaving the bone in on thigh’s and or Breast may add the flavor needed or expected, then removing the bone before serving.

    Your recipes are wonderful and have enjoyed many. Thank you so much.

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words Ken 🙂

      Leaving the bone in on thighs and breast will add flavor to the sauce!

      Please take care & have a wonderful weekend
      Jacky

  2. I love this recipe! It tastes just like how my mom used to cook it. Thank you so much for another wonderful recipe!

  3. Just made this for hubby and me. It was DELICIOUS! It reminded me of my mom’s home cooking (parents were from Canton/Guandong, so we speak Toishan) and as with you, I loved the potatoes, too. Lol

    Love your blog and it has helped me tremendously with my new Ultra 6 quart. Keep up the excellent work and thank you both!

    1. Hi Elizabeth,

      Welcome to our site and thank you so much for your kind words 🙂

      Do let us know if you come across any questions with your new IP!

  4. Hi guys, I love your site and all your recipes. My family was also originally from HK so I appreciate all the HK favorites! I have a Chinese pressure cooker. It has preset buttons for meat, rice, beans etc. And I specifically got a model with some limited manual capabilities in the hope of making it easier to reproduce recipes originally designed for the Instant Pot.

    So far it’s worked fine for most of your recipes except the chicken dishes. Chicken always comes out overcooked. (Eg meat from the chicken wings are falling off the bone, almost disintegrating). I’ve tried to fix this by pressing the “chicken” button and then lowering the pressure (couldn’t change the time) but it still came out overdone. (My limited manual functions only allow me to press one of the preset buttons and then lower/increase pressure and time from there — I can’t go completely manual (eg High Pressure for 5 mins)).

    Do you have any suggestions or ideas on how to tweak the settings so that I can cook chicken in the cooker without overcooking? Perhaps you’ve come across these Chinese pressure cookers before? (Thought it wouldn’t harm to ask just in case!) I love all your chicken recipes and I would be so sad if I can’t make them! Thank you!

    1. Hi JX,

      thank you for your kind words and question 🙂

      I would try reducing the cooking time by 2 minutes and see what happened.

      Take care & have fun cooking
      Jacky

    1. Hi Erica,

      thank you for your question 🙂

      It will be less flavorful without the bones, but boneless chicken thighs will work just fine. No adjustment is needed.

      Take care & have fun cooking
      Jacky

    1. Hi Lynn,

      thank you for your question 🙂

      It will be less flavorful, but boneless chicken breast will work just fine. You will want to shorten the cooking time to 5 minutes and natural release.

      Take care & have fun cooking
      Jacky

  5. Do you think you could make this dish with chicken thighs instead? Wings are so expensive now. Would you bone the thighs or just chop them into smaller pieces?
    Would you cook it the same time? Any other adaptations for using thighs?
    Thank you!

    1. Hi Yoshi,

      thank you for your question 🙂

      No chopping is needed. Bone-in Chicken thighs will take 6 minutes and 10 minutes natural release.

      Take care & have fun cooking
      Jacky
