Using your NESCO 11 Quart Pressure Cooker this recipe for Chicken Wings is simple and fast. Adding honey to your favorite Smokey BBQ sauce gives the wings that right touch of sweetness.

Ingredients:

12-14 chicken wings cut into pieces
1 cup of water
1 3/4 cups of smoky BBQ sauce divided
4 tablespoons of honey divided

Cut 12-14 chicken wings into 3 pieces - the drumettes, wingettes (often called flats) and the tips. For this recipe we'll use just the drummettes and wingettes. Save and freeze the tips for next time you make homemade chicken stock.

Add wing pieces to you NESCO Pressure Cooker with ? cup of your favorite smoky BBQ sauce, 1 cup of water and 2 tablespoons of honey. Lock lid and set regulator knob to SEAL. Set for ten minutes on High Pressure and cook.

When wings are finished after 10 minutes of cooking remove to lightly greased cookie sheet. Place under broiler for 5 minutes or until crispy brown. Remove from broiler. Combine remaining BBQ sauce and honey and brush wings lightly. Enjoy.

NOTE: Wings may vary in size when purchased. Larger wings may require extra cooking time to be fully cooked. If so reset your pressure cooker and cook for an additional 3-4 minutes. Repeat if needed.

Tips for Whipping Egg Whites


Dec. 1, 2016 3:16 pm


Whipping egg whites can be quick and simple with your NESCO Digital Hand Mixer. 

When whipping egg whites it's best to use a metal bowl such as stainless steel or copper. Avoid an aluminum bowl as it can alter the color of your eggs. 

Adding a half teaspoon of cream of tarter for two or more eggs will help keep the whipped egg whites firm.

When making meringue add 2 tablespoons of white sugar for each egg. Add sugar slowly while beating eggs. Whip until stiff peaks form.
