  • 2-3 pounds chicken wings I used 3 pounds for this recipe
  • 2-3 tablespoons preferred seasonings Use your favorites, or stay basic with salt, pepper and garlic
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ cup chicken broth or water
  • Hot sauce for serving I used a homemade pesto


  1. Wash and pat dry the chicken wings. Set them into a large mixing bowl.
  2. Add seasonings and olive oil. Rub the wings down good. Really work in those flavors.
  3. Set them into the pressure cooker with the chicken broth or water. Set on HIGH PRESSURE for 9 minutes. It will probably take a bit of time for your pressure cooker to heat up.
  4. After 9 minutes, carefully release the steam and remove the wings.
  5. Set your oven to broil and broil the wings on baking sheets about 5-6 minutes, or bake at 425 degrees F. You can go a longer. The goal here is to crisp up the skins. Flip part way through.
  6. Toss with your favorite hot sauce and serve! These are fall-off-the-bone!
