5 Stars 4 Stars 3 Stars 2 Stars 1 Star No reviews
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 24 minutes
  • Total Time: 34 minutes


  • 4 Lbs. Chicken Wings
  • 1/21 teaspoon Garlic powder
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 1 Cup Water
  • Sliced celery, carrots, Blue Cheese or Ranch, for serving

Buffalo Wing Sauce Ingredients:

  • 1 Cup Frank’s Original hot sauce
  • 1/2 Cup Unsalted Butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon Garlic powder


  1. Sprinkle the wings with the garlic powder, salt and black pepper. Place the metal trivet inside the Instant Pot® and add 1 cup of water. Arrange the seasoned wings on top of the trivet before securing the cover in place. Switch the vent to “Sealing” and adjust the “Manual” setting to 8 minutes.
  2. While the wings cook, whisk the Frank’s hot sauce, melted butter, and garlic powder in a medium bowl until thoroughly combined. Set aside.
  3. When done cooking, allow pressure to naturally release for 10 minutes, then do a quick release for any remaining steam. Carefully remove lid and transfer the wings to a large bowl.
  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 buffalo 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 this process.
  6. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and toss the wings with half of the remaining buffalo sauce.
  7. Serve immediately with sliced celery, carrots and the remaining sauce on the side for dipping.
  8. Enjoy!
