Ingredients

  • 2 pounds Chicken Wings and Drumettes
  • 1 tbsp Butter
  • 2 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 2 tsp Soy Sauce
  • 2 to 3 tsp Hot Sauce (Franks Red Hot)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp Harissa Chile Paste (Got mine at Trader Joes)
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 cup Water
  • 3 tbsp Chopped Scallions for Garnish

Instructions

  • THIS RECIPE WAS MADE WITH FROZEN WINGS. IF YOU WANT TO MAKE WITH FRESH WINGS DECREASE COOKING TIME 2 MINUTES.
    THIS IS A 2 PART RECIPE. WINGS ARE BROWNED UNDER BROILER AFTER BEING COOKED IN THE INSTANT POT.
    Insert trivet into Instant Pot. If you have a steamer basket that will work too. You just want to keep the wings out of the liquid.
    Put wings into Instant Pot. No seasoning is required at this point seasoning will be in wing sauce. Put 1 Cup water in bottom of Instant Pot.
    Close Lid of Instant Pot and move valve to SEAL. Push POULTRY button on front of Instant Pot and set time to 10 MINUTES. It is going to take about 10 to 15 minutes for Instant Pot to come to pressure.
    When cooking is complete do a QUICK RELEASE of the pressure and then go and heat up your oven broiler.

Make Sauce

  • I do this in the microwave but you can do it in a saucepan on the stove if you prefer. In a microwave safe bowl put Butter,Vinegar,Soy Sauce,Hot Sauce,Garlic Powder and season with some Salt and Pepper.
    Put in microwave for about 90 seconds or just until butter melts and sauce is warm. Stir sauce to combine and then salt and pepper to your liking.

Broil Wings

  • Put wings on a sheet pan in a single layer. Place under broiler about 6 inches from heat source. Broil about 4 to 5 Minutes per side.
    Toss broiled wings in wing sauce.
    Enjoy.
