  • 3 lb chicken wings
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup coconut aminios or soy
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 tbsp Molasses
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • sesame seeds or scallions (optional)


  • Spread chicken wings in a large sheet pan. Pat dry with paper towel to remove moisture. Season with salt and pepper, to taste
  • Add 1 cup water to the instant pot and place trivet. Add the chicken wings on top of the trivet. They will be on top of each other and that's okay.
  • Cover the pot and lock vent valve. Cook on high pressure HP for 10 minutes. When done allow for 5 minutes of natural presence release NPR and then release remaining pressure.
  • Carefully transfer the wings back to the large sheet pan, not overlapping and bake at 450F degrees for 15 minutes to crips up a bit.
  • Remove liquid from the instant pot, rinse and dry the pot. Place pot back in the pressure cooker and turn on saute mode.
  • To the instant pot add coconut aminos (or soy), honey, molasses and minced garlic. Saute for the duration of the time the wings are in the oven 12-15 minutes. Stir occasionally. Cooking these ingredients will help thicken the sauce.
  • When the wings are done in oven, carefully transfer them back to the instant pot, into the honey soy sauce and continue to saute for up to 5 minutes so that wings can bathe in the honey soy sauce. Then transfer the wings one by one to a serving platter. The sauce will thicken as it dry out in the wings
  • Pour remaining honey soy sauce into a dipping bowl and serve alongside the wings. You can garnish the wings with sesame seeds or scallions if you like. Serve with lemon slices.
