  • 2 lbs. Frozen Chicken Wings
  • 1 cup Water
  • Cooking Spray
  • 1 cup Sauce of Choice
  • Optional Serving Suggestions: Bleu Cheese Dressing Ranch Dressing, Celery and Carrot sticks


  • Place the trivet into the Instant Pot. Carefully stack the wings on top of the trivet trying to make sure that none touch the bottom.
  • Select "Manual" and cook for 12 minutes. Then, let the IP naturally rest for 5 minutes. While the wings rest, spray the wire rack with cooking spray then set on top of a baking sheet.
  • Preheat your oven to a high broil.
  • Carefully, force pressure after the 5 minutes are up. Transfer to a bowl with sauce of choice. Mix well (carefully because they will practically fall off the bone), then, using tongs,  place on to the sprayed wire rack.
  • Once all the wings are on the rack place in the oven for 3-5 minutes until golden (watch them carefully to ensure they don't burn). Remove from the oven, flip every wing/drum over, and repeat until the other side is golden in color and crispy (about 3-5 minutes depending on your oven).
  • Remove the chicken wings from the oven, plate, and serve with your favorite ranch or bleu cheese dressing, carrot and celery sticks!


*Save additional sauce and re-coat wings after you've pulled them out of the oven OR serve on the side with the wings.
