Matt’s Menu: Instant Pot Buffalo Wings — Pressure Cooker Chicken Wings Recipe

Many call me a chicken enthusiast since it is my favorite food. After receiving my Instant Pot — which I’ll call InstaPot (isn’t that a much better name?), I decided to cook up some traditional buffalo wings. My favorite types of wings have breading, but I knew the pressure cooker would make the chicken very tender and I was right! These wings might have to compete at WingFest.

I prefer to marinate my chicken to give it extra flavor but anyone can certainly use this same mixture while the chicken wings are cooking under pressure. These wings are perfect for an appetizer, meal or Super Bowl Sunday!
