These are my Grandson Hayden's favorite wings. It's an easy recipe for delicious, spicy-sweet, finger-licken, fall-off-the-bone wings! Pre-cooking the wings in a pressure cooker (e.g., Instant Pot), ensures they are perfectly cooked with the Sweet Heat Cajun Blend flavor sealed into the meat. Grilling and then basting the wings in the hot sauce mixed with the additional spices, makes them crispy and just amazing. Enjoy!
Sweet Heat Cajun, Garlic Granules
4 lbs Chicken Wings
1/2 cup Butter (1 stick)
1/2 cup Hot Sauce (Frank's Hot Sauce)
2 Tblspns plus 2 tsp Sweet Heat Cajun
1 tsp Garlic Granules
Direvtions: Clip and discard (or save to use for broth) the wing portion on each piece of chicken. Cover the chicken pieces with 2 Tblspns of the Sweet Heat Cajun Blend. Cook the coated chicken pieces in a pressure cooker, such as the "Instant Pot." Note: For the Instant Pot, put the chicken on a rack in the pot with 3/4 cup water added to the pot. Cook on Manual for 12 minutes, quick release. Make the sauce by melting the butter in a saucepan and then stir in the hot sauce, the remaining 2 tsps of Sweet Heat Cajun, and the 1 tsp Garlic Granules. Pour half the sauce mixture over the cooked chicken pieces. To crisp the chicken skins, cook them on the Grill (about 10 minutes on each side), basting each piece with the remaining sauce. The cooked chicken pieces can also be placed under the broiler for 5-10 minutes (or until desired crispness is achieved), if not grilled. Serve the grilled or broiled chicken, immediately with Ranch or Blue Cheese dressing for dipping.
