  1. Whisk together water, jam, lime juice, chipotles, garlic, sugar, salt, and pepper in a 6-quart programmable electric pressure cooker. Add drumettes; toss to coat. Close and lock lid of cooker; turn the pressure release valve to sealing position. Program cooker to cook on manual on high pressure for 20 minutes.
