  • 2 pounds chicken wings , (drumettes and flats, pat them dry with paper towels).

Dry Rub:

  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp ground paprika
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
  • ½ tsp black pepper

Sweet and Sticky Sauce:

  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp minced ginger
  • tbsp apple cider vinegar

For Crisping:

  • ¼ cup melted butter


  • In a large bowl, add chicken and dry rub. Toss to coat.
  • Add 1 cup of water and put a basket into the pot. Arrange chicken wings in a basket. Secure the lid, cook on Manual at High Pressure for 5 minutes. Once the cooking cycle is completed, let the pressure release naturally.
  • Bring the sweet and sticky sauce ingredients to a boil over medium heat. Lower the heat then simmer for 3-4 minutes or until thickened. Reserve about 2 tbsp of sweet and sticky sauce for serving.
  • In a large bowl, add chicken wings, melted butter, and the remaining sweet and sticky sauce. Toss to coat.
    Select the AIR CRISP, 390°F, and set time to 15 minutes. Open every 3-5 minutes to check for the crispness of your desire.
  • Serve the chicken wings with the reserved sweet and sticky sauce.


Alternatively, if you are using an Instant Pot you can crisp the chicken wings in the broiler.
  • Transfer the cooked chicken wings into a large bowl. Pour half of the sweet and sticky sauce, toss to coat. Reserve the remaining sauce for serving.
  • Arrange the wings on the wire rack one above center position inside the broiler.  Cook until crisp, about 3-6 minutes, turning pan once halfway through.
  • Remove from the oven and pour in the remaining sauce before serving, toss to coat. Serve and Enjoy.
