Always a Crowd Pleaser

The chicken wing is the unsung hero of the restaurant industry. Just about any restaurant, no matter their fare, has some variation on their menu. They are easy and really cost effective. The “Hot Wing” was born out of necessity in 1964 in a local bar in Buffalo New York. You can read all about the story in the article written by the NATIONAL CHICKEN COUNCIL. It is an interesting story.

I love food that has a great history behind it. And it doesn’t have to be a national history either. Heck, my HOMEMADE BISCUITS have a rich history right here in my own house. They are a real crowd pleaser too. But, I digress.

If you need a foolproof recipe that will feed a crowd on a very little budget, this is it! There is a reason chicken wings are so popular and we are going to show you how easy they are at home.

How To Make Them

This is the easiest method I have ever found! The Electric Pressure cooker is a real prize in saving time and effort when speeding up the cooking process. So we are going to start with it and finish with the trusty old oven. Much like our EASY SOUTHERN FRIED CHICKEN, we start with one cooking process and use the oven to finish and give that wonderful crispy texture that only it can provide. Here is what we used.

~Ingredients

  • I pound chicken wings and drumettes – cheap and easy. You can buy them whole and split for added savings.
  • 1/2 tablespoon Seasoning Salt – we love Lawry’s. So flavorful! Feel free to go crazy here with whatever spice you love.
  • I cup water – you need liquid ANYTIME you are cooking in any model of and electric pressure cooker.

For the Sauce:

  • 3 Tablespoons Honey – the sweet component that helps add not only flavor but crystallization for that crunch!
  • 1 Tablespoon Soy sauce– a little saltiness to balance the sweet of the honey.
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika – that undeniable smoky flavor with out having to grill or smoke.
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt – more or less depending on your taste and dietary preferences.
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder – all the flavor, none of the texture.
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper – a slight kick.
  • I teaspoon garlic powder – same as the onion. Flavor without texture.
  • 2 Tablespoons Melted Butter – a must for a shiny, smooth sauce.
  • optional- 2 tablespoons Hot sauce – if you want to make things interesting!

~Method

  1. Season wings with seasoning Salt. Pour 1 Cup of water into liner pot of pressure cooker.
  2. Place wings in a basket and put into pressure cooker. Close lid, lock, set vent to seal. Set to manual or pressure cook for 10 minutes, for fresh chicken. 15 minutes for frozen.
  3. When the cook time is complete, allow pressure to naturally release for about 10 minutes. Carefully release any remaining pressure
  4. Mix remainder of ingredients for sauce together well, place wings in a large bowl and cover with half of the sauce. Coat well,
  5. Place wings on a sheet pan fitted with a rack or covered with foil. Place under broiler for 2-4 minutes per side. Baste with reserved sauce just before serving.

Tips and Tricks

Can I cook these in the regular oven?

Yes! No Pressure cooker required! You can bake them at 400 degrees for 30-45 minutes until a meat thermometer reads 180 degrees near the thickest part of the meat near the bone. When done baking, toss in the sauce and place under broiler as directed in the recipe.

Can I use boneless wings?

Yes. The cooking time should be the same for boneless since you are using the pressure cooker. If you are using the oven, just cook until they reach an internal temp of 180 degrees.

What if I don’t have a baking rack?

That is easy! Line your pan with foil and spray lightly with cooking spray. You may have some excess moisture so watch your internal temperature for doneness.

We hope you will make our recipe for these outstanding wings! Using the EPC is really a game changer. This recipe highlights that and the ease of using one.
