Pressure-Cooker Cranberry Hot Wings

Cranberry wings remind me of all the wonderful celebrations and parties we've had through the years. My daughter?s friends can?t get enough of them. —Noreen Danek, Cromwell, CT
  • Total Time
    Prep: 45 min. Cook: 35 min. + broiling
  • Makes
    about 4 dozen


  • 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


  • Whisk together first 10 ingredients. For chicken, use a sharp knife to cut through two 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.

      these are bland and terrible. Yes I followed the recipe exactly despite how silly most of it was and they turned out terrible. I get that Cranberry Wings sound cool and the Blog you stole it from probably made them sound great but at least seriously test your recipe.
