Top Three Health Benefits of This Recipe [1]: 

  1. Protein rich: Chicken wings can provide 5 to 9 grams of protein per wing.
  2. High in B vitamins: Chicken wings are a good source of vitamin B6, which supports brain function and enhances blood circulation.
  3. Rich in minerals: Chicken wings are considered dark meat, which contains more vitamins and minerals than white meat (chicken breast). Dark meat chicken is a better source of iron, zinc, selenium, and phosphorus.

These keto chicken wings work beyond a weeknight dinner. You can also bring them to potlucks or serve them at a party, for example, your next Super Bowl party!

  1. Place a stainless steam rack or steam basket in the bottom of the Instant Pot, along with 2 cups of water. Stack chicken wings onto rack.
  2. Cover, lock the lid, and flip the steam-release nozzle to the sealing position. Select MANUAL with a cook time of 12 minutes. 
  3. While the wings are cooking, set the oven broiler to high and position the oven rack to be 3-4 inches from the top of the oven.
  4. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper or aluminum foil and lightly spray with oil.
  5. Combine melted butter and hot sauce with a whisk.
  6. When cook time is complete, press CANCEL and quick-release the pressure. Using tongs, dredge each piece of chicken in butter/hot sauce mixture and place on sheet pan in a single layer. Reserve any leftover hot sauce. (see note)
  7. Broil the wings on high until they have a nice golden color, about 5 minutes. Flip wings over and broil the other side for another 5 minutes. Keep an eye on them to make sure they don’t burn. Remove from oven and brush with additional hot sauce if desired. 
  8. Transfer chicken wings to a serving dish and garnish with chopped green onions.

Note: You can save the leftover chicken stock from the bottom of the Instant Pot. Store in the freezer for a future recipe.
