As I previously mentioned, I am having a love affair with my electric pressure cooker. I’m using it at least twice a week to make something for dinner. It makes getting a meal onto the table simple and easy. Today’s recipe is for hot wings. I forgot to take my wings out of the freezer to thaw, so I made these from frozen. They were still ready in under 30 minutes.
All I did was melt some butter in the bottom of the pressure cooker, add the wings and the barbecue sauce and mix it all up so that the wings were evenly coated. I put the lid on the cooker and sealed the pressure valve. I let them cook for 15 minutes because I wanted to make sure that they cooked all the way through. When the time ran out, I released the pressure and noticed I had a problem. There was a lot of liquid in the pressure cooker.
I pulled all of the wings out and arranged them onto a baking sheet which I put into the oven at 400 degrees F for 10 minutes. The wings were flavorful and delicious. I should have brushed more sauce onto them before sticking them into the oven, but I honestly didn’t think about it at the time.
I really recommend these wings, and I’m beginning to think that everyone should have an electric pressure cooker. I used the broth that was leftover as a basis for some navy bean soup which I took for lunch during the week. The flavor from the hot and barbecue sauces added a different depth to my usual soup.
This recipe was adapted from the book, “Power Cooking the quick and easy way”, that came with my pressure cooker. (My pressure cooker is a 6 quart model. If you have a larger one, this recipe may not work, so consult the manual for your particular model).
Here’s the printable version of the recipe. I hope you enjoy it. Thanks for visiting Patty Cake’s Pantry.
