    Hi Puhbah63,

    If a recipe doesn’t mention the cooking pressure level , use High Pressure, as it is the default pressure level. Recipes that cook at different pressure other than High will mention it.

    Was perfect! Made wings and extra chicken tenderloins i had in the freezer. Made the mixture with garlic powder instead of minced garlic. Put in broiler for 3 minutes, could have even went another minute or two longer for them to be real crispy!

    This was first time using Insta Pot and what a great recipe to try. After putting in the broiled these were fall off the bone delicious.

    They were good. Loved the bases of making the wings but next time i would add another 2 minutes on the cooker. Found they were a bit fatty still. Did a second batch with more time and they were better.

    I made this exact to the recipe, minus the cayenne. My picky kiddos approve!!!! 2.5lb of wings gone! They were fall off the bone and so flavorful. I’ve found my new go-to wing recipe!

    Made this today using carolina tangy gold. Didn’t “crisp” up like the picture, but it was excellent otherwise. Easy! Definitely going in my favorites!

    Not a fan. They tasted like boiled chicken even after going into the oven! I was really hoping they’d be good!

    Hi LeahW21,

    Did you cook the chicken wings directly inside the sauce? If you did, you may prefer more seasoning than the recipe calls for. If you prefer a crisper wing, try broiling the wings without sauce first until the skin crisps. Then add the additional bbq sauce and broil for the recommended 3-5 minutes.
