Make this 2-ingredient Lifesaver BBQ Chicken Wings Recipe! Super easy to make & ready for your party in 35 mins. Perfect finger-licking wings for those last minute emergencies.


  • 2 pounds chicken wings & drumettes
  • ½ cup (125 ml) Sweet Baby Ray’s Original BBQ Sauce


1Pressure Cook the Chicken Wings: Pour 1 cup (250ml) of cold water into the pressure cooker.

Place a steamer basket in the pressure cooker and add the wings and drumettes on top of the steamer basket.

Close lid and pressure cook at High Pressure for 5 minutes + Full Natural Release. Open the lid carefully.

2Preheat Airfryer: While the pressure cooker is naturally releasing pressure, dial airfryer to 400°F and set the timer to 10 minutes.

If you’re using an oven: While the pressure cooker is naturally releasing pressure, preheat the oven to 450°F.

3Pat Dry the Chicken Wings: Remove wings and drumettes from the pressure cooker. Pat them really dry with paper towels.


4Apply Sauce and Place in the Airfryer: In a large mixing bowl, toss wings and drumettes with ½ cup (125ml) of BBQ sauce. Add the wings and drumettes into the airfryer basket. Airfry until sauce is glossy and caramelized, about 5–10 minutes.

After 2 – 3 minutes, take out the airfryer basket and give it a toss to make sure the chicken wings brown evenly.

If you’re using an oven: Place the chicken wings and drumettes in a single layer on a wire rack in a baking tray. Bake until the sauce is glossy and caramelized, for about 8–15 minutes.
