Pressure Cooker Chicken Wings – Sweet, Spicy, Savory

Pressure Cooker Chicken Wings

There are a hundred different ways to cook pressure cooker chicken wings. So why in the world should you try this recipe? Two words: THE SAUCE! There’s something so special about this sauce that I have a hard time putting into words.

I guess because I’ve eaten so many wings in my lifetime, I’ve gotten kinda bored with regular old buffalo sauce. I mean, don’t get me wrong… I’ll still tear them up at a wing shack, but that’s not what I usually want when cooking at home. Maybe that’s why this sauce struck a chord with me. It’s got a little bit of everything… sweet, spicy, and savory!

In a large bowl – season chicken wings with salt and pepper to taste. Then fold wings into triangles by tucking the tip behind the drumette. Insert trivet and 1 cup of water. Place wings into Instant Pot in layers with the tips facing up.

Meanwhile, wash the same large bowl and set aside. Melt butter in microwave then add to bowl and combine with Franks and molasses. Whisk until fully combined. Once cook time is complete – add wings to bowl and toss well to coat fully.

    I am not familiar withFrank’s Original Sauce and there was no link to this product. Is this available in most areas? I live in Philadelphia, Pa.

      I’ve always thought that Franks was everywhere. Please let me know if you find it in PA! It’s the best premade sauce I know.

    Why not Frank’s Buffalo-style hot wing sauce?
    Haven’t made these, but love the savory/sweet sauce idea.

      It has a completely different flavor, not a bad one, just different.
