This pressure cooker chicken wings recipe is delightful and delicious. The pressure cooker cooks them quickly and the broiler crisps them up nicely so they can be on your table in no time!
#AD Cosori Brand gifted me this pressure cooker in exchange for an honest review. The words and opinions expressed are mine alone.
I love getting free items in the mail! The Premium Cosori 6-Quart Pressure Cooker I use for this recipe and review in this post came carefully packed in its own box, securely packed inside a sturdy brown shipping box.
The photo below shows the beautiful Cosori pressure cooker and the pretty blue box it came in. Please visit Cosori’s website to read and learn more about their fabulous products and recipes.
However, this box didn’t just come with a pressure cooker inside! Oh no! Check out the contents pictured below.
On the left, we have the manual, a recipe booklet and a welcome booklet. On the right, these six treasures:
- Extra sealing ring
- Measuring cup
- Metal insert for steaming
- Water collecting cup
- Plastic ladle
- Plastic rice spoon
When was the last time you received an extra sealing ring with your pressure cooker? That ring, and some of these other accessories, like the steamer insert, exceeded my expectations.
Another thing I haven’t seen before is a water collecting cup. The manual shows you how to attach it to the back of the lid.
There is a nice variety of recipes in the recipe book, especially for cooks who are new to pressure cookers and what they can do. I also found the colorful welcome booklet to be helpful and user friendly.
The Cosori appliance itself is sturdy but not too heavy. I love how the venting knob works and feels. It’s a fun, rounded square that feels a little sturdier than other venting knobs. Pictured below are some of the pressure controls.
- Float valve – will rise above the cover when the cooker is pressurized
- Lock – Venting knob must be in this position to pressurize the cooker
- Venting – Turn the knob to this position when you want to release the steam
I found the controls easy to navigate and to use, which I appreciate because I am the type of person who doesn’t like to read manuals. I like to figure things out on the fly and that usually works for me. Since this product was new and a little different than pressure cookers I’ve used before (this isn’t your grandmother’s pressure cooker!) I did take a quick look at the manual to answer a question or two (e.g., where and how to place the water collecting cup).
I especially enjoy using the steamer insert. The feet on it keep the bed well above the liquid inside the pot, which is great when you want to steam something like vegetables.
All in all, I had very satisfying user and cooking experiences with this Cosori pressure cooker.
How to make Pressure Cooker Chicken Wings
On the left we have the 3.5 pounds of raw chicken wings, chicken broth and the ingredients for the marinade sauce.
The white arrow in the middle points to the button I push to start the sauté function. The pan takes less than a minute to heat and when it does, I put 3 tablespoons of chicken broth on the bottom.
I place the chicken inside and sauté for 3 minutes, stir it and cook for an additional 3 minutes. During this time, I prepare the marinade sauce.
I press the Off button, remove the wings from the pressure cooker and place them on a plate as you can see in the photo on the left. You can also see the marinade in the background.
I add 3/4 cup of broth to the pressure cooker and place the steamer insert inside. I lay the partially cooked chicken wings on the steamer insert. I seal the lid, making sure the venting valve is in the lock position, I press the manual button (1) and (because the time defaults to 30 minutes) I decrease the cook time (2) to 10 minutes by using the minus button (3).
All pressure cookers take 10 – 15 minutes to come to full, cooking pressure and the Cosori is no different. (Similar to preheating your oven, you’ll need to factor this into your prep time.) Once it does, it will start counting down the time you set. When the timer is up and the wings are finished cooking, the pressure cooker will beep 3 times to let you know.
Natural or Quick Release
You can either wait for the pressure to release naturally (which means the button will fall back to its starting position, flush with the top) or you can release the pressure quickly by carefully nudging the venting valve. I usually wear oven mitts when I release it. It’s not worth taking the risk that venting steam could burn my delicate long-fingered hands!
I get out my large baking dish and put the chicken wings in it. I pour on the marinade (recipe below in the recipe card), and turn my oven broiler to High.
As I wait for the oven to heat up, I flip the pressure cooker chicken wings around a few times to coat them with the delicious marinade.
I place the baking dish directly under the broiler and set the timer for 3 minutes. I pull the chicken wings out and flip them over and place them back under the broiler for 2 minutes. I do that one more time so they get nice and crispy.
I remove the now crispy pressure cooker chicken wings from the oven and plate them. I also pour the marinade in a little dipping bowl.
I grab a wing and dip it in the delicious marinade.
I lift that mouth-watering wing to chomp on it!
And so I do.
