Basic Instant Pot Chicken Wings
It’s incredibly easy to make basic Instant Pot Chicken Wings!
Use about 4 to 4 1/2 pounds of trimmed chicken wings and season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Place the metal trivet into the Instant Pot and add one cup of water. Arrange your seasoned wings on top of the trivet, then secure the cover in place. Switch the vent to “sealing” and adjust the “manual” setting to 8 minutes.
When the wings are done cooking, allow the pressure to release naturally for about 10 minutes before doing a quick release for any remaining steam.
Add the wings to a large mixing bowl and allow to cool completely.
To crisp up your wings, simply toss the wings with your favorite chicken wing sauce and place under the broiler for 3–4 minutes per side. If you prefer not to crisp up your wings, feel free to skip the broiling step and just toss with your sauce and serve!
Be sure to cook your chicken wings to an internal temperature of 165° as per the USDA recommendations.
