Instant Pot No Washing Up Mediterranean Chicken Wings was originally published on RecipeThis.com in 2017 and was one of our first ever recipes in the Instant Pot Pressure Cooker. With new Instant Pot Accessories and little improvements we have decided to update it for you.

Instant Pot No Washing Up Mediterranean Chicken Wings

Today I am sharing with you my Instant Pot no washing up Mediterranean chicken wings. Though maybe foil packet chicken wings is a more accurate description. You see by them being cooked in silver foil it means that you have zero washing up to do. Making them perfect for camping or when you hate washing up.

I don’t know about you but I just love crispy Mediterranean chicken wings. The lovely flavour and that finger licking goodness at the same time. Plus, for the struggling family they are also very frugal too.

But as a busy working mum I often have one of the biggest issues ever (Dominic tells me this all the time) I suck at time management. I will go into the kitchen at the same time each day to cook lunch. This will apply whether I am roasting a chicken, making a stir fry or even cooking something quick in the soup maker or the air fryer.

I will be stood in front of the kitchen worktop marinating my chicken wings. I will spend about 5-10 minutes doing this, then I will turn the oven on and bake them for an hour. I will always be so busy that I will forget to preheat the oven and they will cook for about an hour on top of some seasonal vegetables.

Dominic will then say: “lunch at 2pm again?” instead of the usual 1pm that he cooks for me at.

I always think to myself that next time I will start them at 12pm so that they are ready for 1pm but with potty training and breastfeeding taking priority on my day off with the kids it just never quite happens right.

But here I am with my Instant Pot and suddenly I can cook my crispy chicken wings in 10 minutes instead of 60 minutes and Dominic can rest assured I won’t leave him starving as often. Or does this mean that I am thinking “there is no rush as the Instant Pot” is so fast that I forget about it and it doesn’t go on until 2pm?

Whatever your time management skills, tuck into these delicious Instant Pot Mediterranean Chicken Wings with hardly any washing up required and they are so delicious. You could have them no matter what the season is, and they are amazing for a barbecue too!

Will An Instant Pot Make Crispy Chicken Wings?

I have this secret kitchen gadget for this, and it is called a Crisp Lid. It is by a brand called Mealthy. In a nutshell it converts your Instant Pot or other electric pressure cooker into an air fryer. Just attach the lid to the top and you have an air fryer. It is perfect for the finishing stage of cooking Instant Pot Chicken Wings and making them super crispy.

It also saves on the hassle of moving the chicken wings to the air fryer for completing the cooking process.

Instant Pot Chicken Wings Cooking Time

You will be pleased to know that it only takes 10 minutes to cook Instant Pot Chicken Wings. This excludes the time to crisp your chicken wings at the end, which I would recommend another 5 minutes for.

How To Instant Pot Chicken Wings?

To cook Instant Pot Chicken Wings, it is straight forward and simple. Load the marinade ingredients into a couple of sheets of foil.

Add the chicken wings and rub the marinade into the wings. As it is NOT a watery marinade it is easy to do without foil packet leakages.

Place the chicken wings foil packets into the Instant Pot, add the water to the bottom, sit the foil packets on the steamer shelf and you’re ready to go!

Instructions

  • Lay out two big silver foil sheets and split the marinade ingredients in two over the two silver foils (except for the chicken wingso that you have 2 separate marinades.
  • Split the chicken wings between the two parcels and rub it well into the mixture. Seal each package up and shake it well so that everything is going to have a good coating.
  • In your Instant Pot add 1 cup of water to the bottom and place the steaming shelf on top.
  • Place your chicken wings packets on top of the steaming shelf.
  • Place the lid on your Instant Pot and set the valve to sealing and press to manual for 10 minutes.
  • Serve in the foil packets.

Notes

To make your Instant Pot Chicken Wings crispy, cook with the crisp lid for a further 5 minutes with the silver foil removed, or in the air fryer.
We get the most delicious chicken seasoning in the dried herbs section in Spain across the border from where we live. However what also works really well is a dried chicken stock cube or for a spicier version our KFC rub.
Because your food has been cooked in the silver foil the only thing you’ll need to do is remove the water when it’s cooled down!
Serve with my homemade tomato ketchup and homemade mayonnaise.

Instant Pot Recipes – The Outtakes

Sam: I’ve made some chicken wings and wrapped them in foil will you Instant Pot them for me?

Dom: Why don’t you do it?

Sam: Because I might break it, it cost 100€ you know!

Dom: Okay watch me do it

To which I am shocked how easy it is. Maybe tomorrow I might actually get the courage and do it myself! But I mixed the marinade together so surely that is me contributing to the cooking process!

Can’t make it now? Then pin it for later!

    • Hi Ben

      Thanks for your comment. To get the chicken wings crispy after cooking you could empty out the instant pot and place some oil into the bottom of the instant pot and switch it onto the saute setting. Then place the chicken wings in and leave them for 4- 5 minutes checking on them then turn and then take them out and you should have some crispy ness to the chicken wings.

      Kind Regards

      Sam
