Why You'll Love Instant Pot Chicken Wings and Sticky Sauce

You know how much I love the Instant Pot, and not just for the ease and speed of cooking. The Instant Pot makes food better! By cooking these wings in the Instant Pot under high pressure, you lock the moisture into the meat. So your wings are moist and tender.

Placing the wings under the broiler gives the skin the perfect crispness. The combination of moist, tender meat wrapped in crispy skin is not only totally crave-worthy, it is hard to achieve when cooking wings in the oven or on the grill.

Now, let's talk about the flavor of these wings. Rubbing the wings with both Jamaican jerk and Adobo seasonings adds such a great depth of flavor and nice amount of spice.

And topping them off with a sticky sauce made from ketchup, molasses, brown sugar and hot chili sauce adds a fun texture (better get out the napkins!) and the perfect combination of tangy, spicy and sweet.
