When I have made chicken wings in the Instant Pot, they come out falling off the bone, juicy, and delicious. This Instant Pot Chicken Wings recipe makes them even better by adding Jalapeno Jelly BBQ. These wings are perfect for game night (super bowl coming up?), dinner, or just because.
The great thing about your Instant Pot is that you can actually cook these wings from frozen as well!

Ingredients for bbq chicken wings
- 1 cup of your favorite bbq sauce
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 2 tbs Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tbs fresh minced garlic
- 1/2 cup water
- 2 lbs chicken wings, thawed

How to Make Instant Pot Chicken Wings
Add 3 tbsp. Canola oil and turn your Instant pot to saute high
Add your chicken in one layer.
Saute turning every 3-4 minutes.
Once you see a light golden brown in color remove from the Instant pot.
You do NOT want them fully cooked.
We are just adding a crisp and crunchy texture to the chicken.
In medium sized bowl add all the sauce ingredients.
Stir to combine.
Now add the chicken and sauce to the Instant pot.
Set the valve on top to seal.
Set the pressure on high for 8 minutes
Quickly release the value on top until all the pressure has released.
Carefully remove the lid and place the cooked chicken wings on a pan
lined with foil.
Baste them with some more of the left over bbq sauce in the Instant Pot.
Broil them in the oven on high for 5 minutes to allow the bbq to caramelize.
Turn the wings over, baste and then broil for another 2 minutes.
