Turn the Instant Pot to saute mode and add the butter.
Once the butter has melted, add in the chicken, cayenne pepper, and salt and pepper to taste. Mix the chicken so that each piece is seasoned. Add ½ cup hot sauce and stir the chicken so that it’s coated.
Close and lock the lid to your Instant Pot and turn the steam valve to sealing. Using the manual or pressure cook setting, cook on high pressure for 8 minutes.
Once the cook time is complete, quick release the pressure and remove the lid. You can remove chicken and drizzle remaining hot sauce on top and eat now, or skip ahead to the next step.
Using tongs, remove the chicken from the Instant Pot and place on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil.
Brush the chicken with the additional ¼ cup of hot sauce.
Place the baking sheet and broil the chicken for 3 minutes on each side. This will help to thicken the sauce. Let the chicken cool for 5 minutes before serving.
I like to use partially frozen chicken because it’s easier to cut.
If using completely frozen chicken, place the frozen chicken breasts in the Instant Pot, along with ½ cup of water, cayenne pepper and salt and pepper to taste. Cook for 16 minutes, then cube and continue with the recipe.
If using fully thawed chicken, lower your cook time to 7 minutes.
If you're short on time you can skip broiling and just toss the chicken with the remaining wings sauce, but I highly recommend broiling.
These Weight Watchers boneless buffalo wings go great with a side of celery sticks and blue cheese dressing or topped with goat cheese.
Need some ranch? You can make a simple ranch dip using a small container of plain Greek yogurt and add 1 tsp garlic powder, 1 tsp onion powder, 1/2 tsp black pepper, 1/2 tsp parsley and 1/2 tsp dill.
