There are so many varieties. So many in fact, that there are restaurants who specialize in Chicken Wings. Using my Instant Pot Pressure Cooker for wings is great, as I can have the wings on the table in less than 30 minutes, these wings are sticky, sweet and have a hickory taste. Give this one a try, they are so good! Do you remember those bbq's as a kid? Someone always brought chicken wings to go with hamburgers and hot dogs, potato salad and baked beans. My dad would take us out for holidays and we always had bbq. Although he always made his with beer. These come out similar, great taste with sticky goodness! You can't pass on, get the napkins and ranch dressing out my friend, because they are so tender and juicy and broiled to perfection!​
