How to make chicken wings in the Instant Pot?
Well, I wondered that too at first. I wanted to make these Tandoori Chicken Wings in the Instant Pot, end to end. But then, I really couldnt figure out a way to really crisp them up, you know. So, I used the Instant Pot to speed up the process of making these chicken wings.
I marinated the chicken wings for 10 mins, and put them in the Instant Pot to cook them real quick in about 7 mins. And then, I took them out and baked in the oven for 15-20 mins. Now, that is real quick, especially when you can pre heat the oven while the Instant Pot is working, so you are not losing precious time there.
