Ever since I bought a Fagor 4 Qt. Pressure Cooker a few years ago, I've been experimenting with using it to prepare our favorite dishes more quickly than the traditional methods.

The last few times that we made hot wings at home, we used the Alton Brown Steaming & Oven Baking process which results in very tasty wings but takes about an hour.

Rather than steaming the wings for 10 minutes in a regular pot, I decided to pressure cook them at 15 PSI for 5 minutes. Then bake them at 450 degrees Fahrenheit for only 20 minutes instead of the usual 40 minutes.

To prepare the raw chicken, I discarded the tips and separated the drummettes from the wing sections.

Then I carefully placed the chicken pieces on top of a  vegetable steamer and lowered them in a pressure cooker filled with a 1/2 cup of water and some liquid smoke for flavor.

To get the pressure cooker up to pressure, I turned the stove's burner to "High" for a minute and then down to "Medium" once the yellow 15 PSI indicator on the handle popped up.

I also turned the oven on to preheat it to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.

Then I dropped a few drops of Liquid Smoke on the wings.

Pressure Cooker @ 15 PSI
While the chicken wings steamed and cooked at 15 PSI in the pressure cooker for five minutes, I got out a large mixing bowl and the two sauces we planned to use on the wings.

We decided to make half of them "buffalo hot wings" with Crystal hot sauce and toss the other half in Bull's Eye BBQ sauce.

After five minutes, I turned off the stove burner and released the pressure in the pressure cooker.

The wings looked almost entirely cooked and there was a good amount of oily fat in the water below the steamer that had rendered out of the skin.

Toss Wings In Hot Sauce
I dropped a few teaspoons of Crystal Hot Sauce into the large mixing bowl and tossed half of the wings in the sauce.

We've tried using traditional Buffalo wings hot sauce in the past, but many of them contain a large amount of butter which largely defeats the purpose of steaming the wings to remove some of the fat from the skin.

Place On Rack & Pan
I moved the wings coated with hot sauce on to a wire rack with a baking pan underneath it to catch any drips.

Then I washed out the mixing bowl, poured in a generous helping of Bull's Eye barbecue sauce and tossed in the rest of the wings to evenly coat them with the sauce.

20 Minute Timer
Just as I finished tossing the wings in the two sauces, the oven beeped to indicate that it was preheated to 450 degrees.

I slid the rack with the wings on it into the oven and set a timer for 20 minutes.

After 20 minutes, I removed the wings from the oven and let them cool for a moment before moving them on to a plate.

The chicken wings that were coated with Bull's Eye BBQ sauce were crispy with a nice layer of caramelized sauce on the skin.

The "buffalo hot wings" were crispy but needed another coating of Crystal hot sauce.
