Today I'm featuring my popular instant pot chicken wings for those who enjoy a tasty, flavorful chicken wing.


  • 1 (2 to 4 pound) bag frozen chicken wing sections

  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup your favorite buffalo wing sauce, divided

1. Sprinkle the frozen chicken wings with salt and pepper.

2. Pour water into the pressure cooker liner and place the trivet inside. Put the chicken wings on top of the trivet. 

3. Close the pressure cooker and set the value to sealing. Set the pressure cooker to manual or pressure cook on high for 12 to 15 minutes depending on the amount of wings. When the cycle is complete, set the valve to quick release.
