Instant Pot Asian Chicken Wings

Instant Pot Asian Chicken Wings
I am obsessed with chicken wings. It is truly one of the things I have missed most during the pandemic. It is tough to get perfectly crispy wings at home. I love cooking in the Instant Pot and read a recipe that had you start the wings in the Instant Pot and finish them in the oven to get that crackling crispy skin. I tried them, and they worked beautifully. It’s many pans to clean up, but I think these crispy, perfect Asian chicken wings are worth it!
