Hot Wings (Emeril Lagasse Pressure Air Fryer Duet Recipe)


4 Pounds of Frozen Chicken Wing Sections
1 12-Ounce Bottle of Hot Wing Sauce
1 Ounce of Softened Butter
1 Tbs. Old Bay Seasoning
1/2 Tbs Fresh Cracked Black Pepper


  1. Mix the hot wing sauce, butter and seasonings in a bowl. The butter doesn’t have to be fully melted, but mixed in some.
  2. Add the wings to the pot.
  3. Pour the hot wing sauce mixture over the wings.
  4. Place the pressure cook lid onto the Emeril Pressure Air Fryer.
  5. Lock the lid so it is sealed.
  6. Press the Pressure button and turn the dial to Poultry.
  7. Press the dial and then press the Time button. Turn the dial to 16 minutes cooking time.
  8. Press the dial in to start the cook.
    (It may take about 19 minutes to fully pressurize.)
  9. When the cooking time completes, perform a rapid release. Press the pressure release slider, to release the pressure. Use caution when releasing pressure.
  10. Check the wings are at least 180° F.
  11. Remove the wings from the pot and place them in a pan.
  12. Using pot holders empty out the fluids in the pot into a bowl. Rinse and dry the pot with paper towels.
  13. Place the pot back into the Emeril Pressure Air Fryer.
  14. Insert the wire rack.
  15. Place a single layer of wings onto the wire rack.
    (About 15 wings may fit at once.)
  16. Put on the air fry lid.
  17. Press the Air Fry button and turn the dial to Poultry.
  18. Press the Temp Button and turn the dial to 400° F.
  19. Press the Time button and turn the dial to 59 minutes. This is just to give plenty of time, more than enough for air frying multiple sets of wings.
  20. Press the dial in to start the cook.
  21. Allow the wings to air fry for 5 minutes, then pause and flip the wings, and air fry another 5 minutes. 10 minutes total for each set of wings.
  22. Repeat step #21 until all wings have been air fried.
  23. Press the Cancel button when finished.
  24. Toss the air fried wings in the sauce.
  25. Enjoy!
