Healthier Chicken Wings

These chicken wings are made in an electric pressure cooker unter high pressure and taste incredible. If you want to make them healthier, try cutting up some chicken breasts and letting it marinate in the seasoning in a small bowl before adding it to the instant pot.

Instant Pot Sesame Garlic Wings Recipe

Get ready to make the most delicious, simplest wings recipe your family will love to eat! 

Prep time: 10 minutes

Active cook time: 14-16 minutes (+ time to come to pressure)

Natural pressure release: 10 minutes

Serves: 4-6

Ingredients:

4-4½ lbs. chicken wings

Salt and black pepper, to taste

1 c. water

White sesame seeds, for garnish

Sesame Garlic Sauce Ingredients:

¼ c. coconut aminos (or soy sauce if not gluten free)

2 T. sesame oil

3 T. honey, preferably local

1 T. unsalted butter

2 t. fresh ginger, very finely minced

1 t. garlic powder

Directions:

  1. Season wings with salt and black pepper, to taste. Place a metal trivet inside Instant Pot® and add one cup of water. Arrange seasoned wings on top of the trivet before securing the cover in place. Switch the vent to “Sealing” and set the “Manual” setting to 8 minutes.
  2. To prepare the sesame garlic sauce, heat the coconut aminos, sesame oil, honey, butter, ginger, and garlic powder in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring frequently, until butter is melted and the mixture is thoroughly combined. Remove from heat and set aside.
  3. When cook time on Instant Pot® is complete, allow pressure to naturally release for 10 minutes, then do a quick release for any remaining steam. Remove the lid and transfer wings to a large bowl. Set aside and cool slightly.
  4. Meanwhile, position top oven rack in the top position and pre-heat broiler to high. Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil and place a wire cooling rack on top. Set aside.
  5. Pour 1/3 of the sesame garlic sauce on top of the wings and toss to coat. Transfer the wings to the wire rack on the prepared baking sheet and place under the broiler for 3-4 minutes or until the wings start to get crispy and develop some color. Turn the wings and repeat on the remaining side.
  6. Remove from the oven and toss the wings with half of the remaining sesame garlic sauce. Sprinkle with white sesame seeds and serve immediately with the remaining sauce on the side. Enjoy!

Tips and Tricks for Sesame Garlic Wings Recipe

This recipe is a hit in my house- which is hard to do with 4 kids! So you know that I make it as much as possible. Here are a few tips and tricks that I have picked up along the way to make sure that this meal is loved every single time. 

  • You can save money by trimming your wings yourself. (See photo for approximate location of where to cut each whole wing). They are a little easier to trim AFTER they’ve been cooked. Immediately freeze the tips to make chicken stock, if desired.
  • Serve with a side of sliced vegetables or add to a kids charcuterie board for a lazy Sunday meal.
  • This recipe is written for fresh or thawed wings. If using frozen wings, add 3-4 minutes to the active cook time.
  • To store, place any extra wings in an airtight container in the fridge. This meal is good for up to 4 days. 
  • For little ones, make sure to cut the meat off of the bone to prevent choking. 

In Summary

This instant pot meal is one of my favorites! When I need a quick lunch that I know my kids will devour, then I always turn to this sesame garlic wings recipe.
