Yield

6 servings
  • 2 lb(s) Chicken Wings ( tips cut off and discarded)
  • Salt ( to taste)
  • Pepper ( to taste)
  • 1/2 cup Orange Juice ( freshly squeezed (or tangerine juice))
  • 1/3 cup Honey ( or maple syrup)
  • 2 Tbsp Rice Vinegar
  • 1/4 cup Siracha Sauce ( or other Asian hot sauce of choice)
  • 2 Tbsp Sesame Seed Oil
  • 2 Garlic Clove ( large, minced)
  • 1/3 cup Soy Sauce ( low sodium)
  • 1 piece Ginger ( fresh, about 1 inch piece. finely grated)
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp Corn Starch ( mixed with 3 Tbsp. water)

Directions

  • 1

    Add a cup of filtered water to the pressure cooker pot and insert a trivet or a steaming basket.

  • 2

    Season the wings with salt and pepper and stack them on top of the trivet.  If using frozen wings, separate them first.

  • 3

    Lock the lid in place, seal the valve and set the timer to 10 minutes.

  • 4

    Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil and set a rack on top.  Set aside.

  • 5

    Combine all sauce ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to boil over a medium heat. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 3 to 5 minutes, or until thickened.

  • 6

    Let the pressure release naturally, then open the lid and carefully remove the trivet using a sling.  Transfer the wings to a bowl and toss with about half of the sauce (use enough sauce to coat evenly). Reserve any remaining sauce.

  • 7

    Arrange the wings in a single layer onto the prepared baking rack and broil for about 3 to 4 minutes, then flip and broil for further 2 minutes, or until nicely browned all over.

  • 8

    Serve immediately with the reserved sauce on the side.
