  • 2 pounds chicken wing pieces

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • ½ cup water

  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce

  • 3 tablespoons packed brown sugar

  • 1 tablespoon honey

  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger

  • 1 ½ tablespoons cornstarch

  • 2 tablespoons water


  1. Season chicken wings with salt and pepper.

  2. Heat sesame oil in a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot®) set to Saute function. Add chicken wings and garlic; saute until wings are browned, about 2 minutes per side. Hit Cancel and use tongs to transfer wings to a plate.

  3. Whisk 1/2 cup water, soy sauce, brown sugar, honey, and ginger together in a small bowl until smooth. Pour sauce into the pot and use a wooden spoon to scrape any browned bits from the bottom. Return wings to the pot; stir until coated in sauce.

  4. Close and lock the lid. Select high pressure according to manufacturer's instructions; set timer for 5 minutes. Allow 6 to 10 minutes for pressure to build.

  5. Release pressure using the natural-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, about 10 minutes; quick-release remaining pressure. Unlock and remove the lid.

  6. Use tongs to transfer wings to a plate.

  7. Whisk cornstarch with 2 tablespoons water in a small bowl to make a slurry. Whisk slurry into the sauce. Turn on Saute function and simmer until sauce thickens, about 2 minutes. Hit Cancel. Return wings to the sauce and toss to coat.
