  • 1 can (14 ounces) jellied cranberry sauce
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup Louisiana-style hot sauce
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried minced onion
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 5 pounds chicken wings (about 24 wings)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons cold water


  1. Whisk together first 10 ingredients. For chicken, use a sharp knife to cut through 2 wing joints; discard wing tips. Place wing pieces in a 6-qt. electric pressure cooker; sprinkle with salt. Pour cranberry mixture over top. Lock lid; close pressure-release valve. Adjust pressure to high for 10 minutes. Quick-release pressure.
  2. Remove wings to a 15x10x1-in. pan; arrange in a single layer. Preheat broiler. Meanwhile, skim fat from cooking juices in pressure cooker. Select saute setting and adjust for low heat. Bring juices to a boil; cook, stirring occasionally, until mixture is reduced by half, 20-25 minutes. In a small bowl, mix cornstarch and water until smooth; stir into juices. Return to a boil, stirring constantly; cook and stir until glaze is thickened, 1-2 minutes.
  3. Broil wings 3-4 in. from heat until lightly browned, 2-3 minutes. Brush with glaze before serving. Serve with remaining glaze.

Test Kitchen tips
  • You can substitute Sriracha for the hot pepper sauce to switch it up.
  • Uncooked chicken wing sections (wingettes) may be substituted for whole chicken wings.
