  • Instant Pot
  • baking sheet
  • Pastry Brush
  • tongs
  • small mixing bowl


  • 2 pounds Sprouts brand chicken wings
  • 1 cup water
  • ¼ cup Sprouts organic Asian BBQ sauce plus more for dipping
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • 1+ tablespoons sriracha depending on desired spiciness
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds for garnish


  • Pour 1 c water into Instant Pot bowl, then place 2 pounds chicken wings in steamer basket in Instant Pot.
  • Close Instant Pot lid, and set vent to sealing. Set to Manual, and cook for 10 minutes, at high pressure. It should take about 20 minutes from start to finish.
  • Once wings are done, turn vent to ‘venting’ and let pressure release, once steam stops, remove lid.
  • Just prior to serving, set oven to broil. Remove chicken wings and place on a lined baking sheet, slather wings with BBQ sauce, and broil for just 2-3 minutes.
  • While wings are in the oven, mix together ¼ c mayonnaise and 1+ T sriracha in a dipping bowl, and pour more BBQ sauce into another dipping bowl.
  • Transfer hot chicken wings from baking sheet to serving bowl, sprinkle with 1 T sesame seeds, enjoy.


  • Using a steamer basket makes for easy removal. it's my favorite Instant Pot tool.
  • Remember it takes about 2x as long to cook in the Instant Pot because it takes time to get up to pressure, and then release pressure at the end.
  • Mix wings & BBQ sauce in a mixing bowl for a cleaner baking sheet
  • You're not supposed to broil baking mats (they burn and get ruined). Mine do ok for less than 5 minutes. But use parchment paper to be safe.
