  • 2 pounds of frozen chicken wings about 15-20 wings
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tsp liquid smoke
  • 1/4 cup Your favorite dry seasoning we love Trader Joe's African Smoke Seasoning
  • 1 cup Your favorite wing sauce we love Sweet Baby Rays and Hooters sauce


  • Combine and stir water with liquid smoke into instant pot
  • Add frozen chicken wings and rub your favorite seasoning along with 1/2 cup of your favorite wing sauce. This will be the flavor infused into the meat of your wings
  • Set instant pot to cook on high for 5 minutes
  • Follow your manufacturer instructions for pre and post heating/cooling of your instant pot
  • Once cooled, place wings on foiled cookie sheet
  • Baste wings with wing sauce (don't be afraid to mix and match sauces)
  • Broil wings until outer skin is caramelized - usually about 7 minutes
  • Turn wings over, baste and repeat broiling for another 7 minutes.


If you don't want crispy chicken wings, it will not be necessary to broil. Just put your sauce on and they are ready to eat.
