15 Must-Try Instant Pot Recipes With Frozen Foods



½ cup red hot sauce, preferably Texas Pete or Frank’s Red Hot
¼ cup chicken broth
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter, cut into three or four pieces
2 tablespoons dried Cajun seasoning blend (a gluten-free version, if that’s a concern)
3 pounds not-breaded frozen chicken wings, preferably individually frozen wings (sometimes called “ice glazed”)

For the blue cheese dip

½ cup regular or low-fat mayonnaise
½ cup regular or low-fat sour cream
2 ounces (1/2 cup) crumbled blue cheese
½ teaspoon onion powder
½ teaspoon ground black pepper


  1. Stir the hot sauce, broth, butter, and seasoning blend in a 6.quart Instant Pot. Set the wings in the sauce and toss well. Lock the lid onto the pot.
  2. Set the machine to either Chicken setting or Pressure Cook/Manual (depending on the model) with HIGH pressure for 15 minutes.
  3. Use the quick-release method to bring the pot’s pressure back to normal. Unlatch the lid and open the cooker. Use tongs to transfer the wings to a large serving platter.
  4. Whisk the mayonnaise, sour cream, blue cheese, onion powder, and pepper in a small bowl until creamy. Serve alongside the hot wings as a dip (perhaps with some of the boiled-down liquid from the machine for a second dip).
