Recipe Ingredients

  • CHICKEN WINGS: You’ll need 2 lbs of chicken wings. This recipe can also be used on chicken thighs and chicken drumsticks.
  • PARMESAN: These wings will taste best when you use freshly grated parmesan cheese (not the jar stuff). Parmigiano reggiano cheese can usually be found in the specialty meat and cheese section of the grocery store.
  • BUTTER: I used salted butter. You could also use unsalted butter, coconut oil, avocado oil, olive oil etc.
  • SPICES: For spices you’ll need dried parsley, paprika, salt and pepper.

How To Make Baked Parmesan Garlic Wings

  1. Two separate bowls are needed for the chicken coating mix. One small bowl will have melted butter. The other will have grated parmesan and spices.
  2. Dip the chicken wings one at a time in melted butter. Next, add them to the parmesan mix and coat all sides. See recipe card instructions below for full details.
  3. Place the wings skin side up in a single layer on a prepared large baking sheet (use a baking rack for extra crispy chicken). Bake until the chicken is fully cooked. Serve and enjoy!

Leftover wings can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge up to 3-4 days. Reheat in the oven to get them crispy again. The microwave will make these wings soggy.

Tips For Crispy Chicken Wings

  • Don’t prewash your chicken. Instead, just lightly pat them dry with a paper towel. Excess moisture can produce soggier results.
  • Use a baking rack that has a wire rack sitting on top of a baking sheet. This helps the fat drip away from the chicken so it gets nice and crispy. If you don’t have one, you can also use a regular baking sheet.
  • Broil the chicken on high for a few minutes after baking. Keep an eye on them as they crisp up to avoid burning.
