  • 1 3/4 lbs. chicken wings, (6 full wings, cut in half at the joint, tips removed)
  • 2 6 oz cans pineapple juice, 1/4 cup separated
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp sweet paprika
  • 1 tsp coriander
  • 2 chipotle chiles in adobo sauce, minced
  • 1 tbsp adobo sauce
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard

More Traditional Buffalo Wings

  • 2 tsp garlic powder, initial rub
  • 1 tsp onion powder, initial rub
  • 1/2 to 1 tsp cayenne pepper, initial rub
  • 4 tbsp butter, melted
  • 4 tbsp Frank's hot sauce
  • 2 tsp lemon juice


  • Mix cumin, paprika and coriander in a large bowl, add the chicken wings and toss to coat. 
  • Place the steaming rack into the electric pressure cooker, add all but 1/4 cup of the pineapple juice, then place the seasoned wings into the cooker. Select manual or steam, high pressure for 8 minutes. Once done, use the quick release method to depressurize the pot. ( Use 1 1/2 cups water for traditional Buffalo wings).
  • While the wings cook, rinse out the large bowl used for the spices and mix together the chipotle chiles, adobo sauce, honey, dijon, and reserved pineapple juice. 
  • Line a large rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil, coat with cooking spray, and turn on oven broiler. Place the rack 4 or 5 inches under the element.
  • Place the wings into the bowl with the sauce and toss to coat. Place the wings on the lined baking sheet and use a spoon to add a little more of the sauce to each wing. Broil for 3 minutes, remove from the oven to turn and spoon more of the sauce on each piece. Place back under the broiler for 3 minutes. 
  • Serve with your prefered sauce. (Ranch or blue cheese dressing come to mind).
