There was a crock-pot contest at work and we decided it was time we promote our blog a bit harder at our workplace. To show off our Asian heritage, our dish was this amazing honey garlic chicken wings and since we didn’t have a crock-pot, we used an instant pot instead.
The contest had two parameters: to feed 50+ people with a budget of $50. With those rules in mind, we had to find a recipe that was easily scalable and wouldn’t break the bank. This Instant Pot Honey Garlic Chicken Wings satisfied both!
There wasn’t that much prep work - we just needed to marinate the chicken wings for half an hour and brown them a bit before cooking it in the instant pot. We ended up browning the wings the night before and let them soak in the marinate overnight. The next day was also easy: 15 minutes to cook and another 10 minutes for the instant pot to decrease in pressure. The end result was fall-off-the-bone, mouth watering, soy-licious chicken wings. We couldn’t be happier with the result, considering the minimum effort we put in.
Did we win the contest? No - but that’s not what is important. It tasted delicious, anyway!
