You guys went absolutely bonkers when we told you about Idaho Press's "Instant Pot Cooking School" coming to the Nampa Civic Center! If you work up the courage to break yours out of the box this weekend, this recipe can save you some serious time and money during the Big Game!

According to Buffalo Wild Wings, they sell almost 14 million traditional and boneless wings on the day of the big game. A small size order of wings (about 9 pieces) starts at $11.49 at B-Dubs.  If you're willing to brave your new Instant Pot, you can make almost four pounds of chicken wings for about the same price.  I haven't checked WinCo or Walmart, but I know that Albertsons sells a four pound bag of frozen chicken wings for $11.29. You'd just need to spend a few more dollars for the sauce ingredients for my original wing recipe!

Check it out and let me know what you think!
