Crispy Chicken Wings

Crispy chicken wings are really easy when you have the Instant Pot involved. You can whip up these wings in your one pot. No need to transfer to the oven to give the crispy skin. The air fryer lid will give you the perfect crispy skin on the wings. 

What Seasoning Do You Use For Chicken Wings 

I wanted a simple recipe, so I reached for Season All. This is like a seasoned salt that will add a nice light flavor to your wings and allow the natural flavors to stand out. You could easily slather them with buffalo sauce if you wanted to heat up the with some spice. 

How To Make Crispy Wings

Close your lid and do the air crisp lid and get that nice crispy skin you want. I share all the instructions below for you to get the exact method below.

  • Garlic Salt with Parsley
  • Cayenne for Spice 
  • Creole or other cajun seasonings
  • Salt and Pepper

Can I Adjust Crispy Wing Texture 

Yes, once your wings are cooked through you are able to adjust the texture of your wings. Pull them sooner if you don’t want them super crispy, or if you like a crispier wing let them cook an additional 5 minutes or so to reach the desired texture.

 How To Serve Crispy Chicken Wings 

You can serve with a dipping sauce like buffalo sauce, ranch, blue cheese dressing, or even bbq sauce. Or if you are a naked wing lover, eat them plain. These are fantastic eaten alone but you will also enjoy added flavors to pair next to your wings.

What Is The Difference Between Chicken Wings and Buffalo Wings 

The key difference in chicken wings and buffalo wings is the sauce. Buffalo wings have the classic buffalo spiced up sauce that is smothered all over the wings. Chicken wings can be plain, barbeque flavored and more. 

How To Store Chicken Wings 

You can store any leftover wings you have in the refrigerator for up to three days. You can warm them up in the microwave, or even the oven if you would like. The texture will change slightly, but they are still tasty leftover.

  1. I’m new to the instant pot duo crisp. I’m confused if I have to pressure cook the wings or can I just use just the air fryer?
    And if I follow your directions is there a huge difference if I use water vs broth?
    Thank you for your recipe! Can’t wait to try

    1. If you have the duo crisp it is best to pressure cook the wings before air frying… that will give you the juiciest results. You can also use water if you like instead of brother. You wont taste a huge difference that a little extra seasoning can’t help. 🙂
