You can make this pressure cooker chicken wings recipe with boneless, skinless thighs if you prefer. Just cut your chicken thighs into 1-inch cubes, and reduce cooking time to 3 minutes. The sugar counts as a portion of the minimum liquid requirement. So if you lower the amount of sugar, replace with an equal measure of water.

Aja A says:
These were fall-off-the-bone delicious! I'm usually a fried chicken wings gal, but these pressure cooked ones has me looking at "baked" wings differently. These cooked up very quickly in my MultiPot and that's a good thing since my apartment was smelling lovely from the teriyaki sauce.
Jen the Mighty says:
I love wings and I love teriyaki so this one was a no-brainer. This recipe was super quick and easy, too. Love it!
Laura Griffin says:
If you like chicken teriyaki you will absolutely fall in love with these wings. The flavor is spot on, and they're really quick to make. I especially love eating these on weeknights when I'm craving wings. I have to try this recipe using chicken thighs next!
Greg Jones says:
Delicious chicken wings! I like making these on game day. I'm definitely gonna have these on the menu for the super bowl. The garlic, ginger, and soy sauce was perfect.
Hector Jonass says:
Very good wings. I threw them under the broiler for a few minutes in an effort to get a little texture, but instead got a stickier sauce, which turned out to be even better for some of the less mature people at the party who took the opportunity to put sticky thumbs on cheeks. Good times!
Maureen Dougherty says:
Fantastic. Fall off the bone with wonderful flavors. Next time I'll broil them a little longer so they crisp up better.
Jessica McFarland says:
Delicious! Like others, I put the wings under the broiler to crisp them up. The sauce got super sticky and my kids appreciated how the meat practically fell off the bone. We will be making these again very soon. I’ve also used the cooking directions for the meat with other sauces/marinades and it works out great every time!
Holly Struelens says:
Multipot arrived today from Mealthy. Made these wings and am in love 💘 with both the cooker and the wings. Glad I took the plunge!
Cate Franklin says:
YUM! Made it the first time for two 8 year old boys, they consumed the whole pot! I used frozen wings, straight from the freezer.
Shirley Kerns Welcome says:
Made these and took them to a wine tasting gathering, they were a smash! No need to worry about browning...the soy sauce tends to darken the wings and the wonderful thick, dark pungent sauce, makes them look and taste delicious.
Elizabeth Green says:
Made these and cut the recipe in half as I cook for one. These are delicious and easy. I cooked these for 11 mins as I at a little higher altitude. They tasted great and were perfectly cooked.
Leah Pritchard says:
Quick, and kid friendly! We all liked it for the Super Bowl.
