  1. These are absolutely delicious! I just bought my Instant Pot and started off with the easiest recipe. I couldn’t believe that such an easy recipe could be so delicious. I will be making these again for sure. Perfectly cooked and highly recommended!

    1. Thank you so much, Sherry! You have made my day. These are so easy to cook in the instant pot that I make them quite often for my family.

  2. I have a question – If you are using the Air Fryer lid, do you cook the chicken in the IP for ten minutes and then and additional ten minutes at 350 using the AFL?

    Thank you – this sounds like a great recipe!


  3. Hi Corrie, just received my Instant Pot Air fryer lid. My first go to will be Chicken Wings. Question: Can I slather the wings with the sauce first then cook them for 10 minutes then use the air fryer lid to crisp up?

    1. Oh sorry, that should be part of the sauce too, added to the bowl with all of the other ingredients. I will update the recipe.

  4. Corrie 2 things – where is the updated recipe – how much corn starch should be added?? Also, if I wanted to make 2 or 3 dozen do I just add them on top of each other???


    1. 1 tbsp. of cornstarch should be added in the first step. And yes, you can have them stacked in pressure cooker mode, but they should be in a single layer if using the air fryer mode.

    1. If you want to finish them with the air fryer lid to crisp them up, take the wings out of the IP and put them in the fryer basket.
