Chicken wings, drumettes and drumsticks are very popular poultry cuts in every world cuisine. What’s not to love with so many spice blends and marinade mix to choose. Quick and easy as snacks, party food, appetiser, side dish or as a main.
You never get bored with the endless ways of preparation, there are so many cooking tools and methods. We are warming up to ignite a fire. Here’s a stovetop recipe for Chicken wings in a soy-chilli marinade.
This version recipe is prepared in the Instant Pot Duo using the high-pressure function first. When done grilled on the barbeque or in the oven for a brown crunch. Have the wings crispy and a little bit charred not blackened unless we would aim for Cajun style.
We’ll get to the “holy trinity” when I share my favourite jambalaya and gumbo, here’s a Black bean recipe. OK, back to the wings.
Sticky BBQ wings
Apart from the juicy BBQ wings and tender chicken legs, the best sticky sauce is made by using the cooking stock which has turned flavour rich now. After removing the wings, use the Instant Pot DUO saute mode to boil the stock reducing it by almost two-thirds or desired sauce thickness. Taste and add seasoning if needed.
The wings and chopped Chicken legs are well seasoned together with homemade BBQ sauce it guarantees sticky fingers and smacking lips. Serve sauce thin or thick as a dipping sauce on the side or drizzle on top of “sticky BBQ sauce chicken wings“.
