Crispy Baked Parmesan Garlic Wings

I’m a huge chicken wing fan! I would say over the last few years I’ve really come to enjoy wings and really started to seek out the best wings around. I know they aren’t a healthy food habit but they are delicious. I never really made them at home. I always felt like it was too much work and that never thought I could capture the deliciousness I look for in a chicken wing. I look for crispiness yet tender and flavorful.

I decided to give it a go and the wings came out SO good I wanted more. They were delicious and had all the key things I look for in a chicken wing. These can be made with a traditional wing sauce or even bbq sauce. I just decided to do a quick Parmesan Garlic coating.

Give this recipe a try for your next wing craving.

Crispy Baked Parmesan Garlic Wings

Ingredients:

3 lbs chicken wing portions, wingettes and drumettes
1 T baking powder (NOT soda)
1 T olive oil
Sprinkle: Garlic & Onion powder
2-3 T Parmesan cheese, finely grated

Sauce:

Ingredients:
6 T butter, melted
4 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 T olive oil
1/2 T parsley dried (or 1T fresh)
1 t garlic powder
1 t onion powder
sprinkle: salt

Directions: Preheat oven 250°. Pat dry the wings. Place on a greased baking sheet, skin side up. Brush baking powder over the top of the wings. Sprinkle with garlic and onion powder. (Note: you can also mix the baking powder with the wings in a large bowl. Also, you can bake on a metal rack over a baking sheet)

Bake in the oven 30 minutes. Once 30 minutes are up, raise the temperature to 425°. Remove wings from the oven and drizzle with olive oil. Put back in the oven and bake 30 minutes.

A few minutes before 30 minutes is up make the sauce. In a small bowl mix melted butter, garlic, parsley, garlic and onion powder and salt. Set aside. Once time is up remove wings from the oven and brush with half of the butter mixture. Place back in the oven and bake for another 15-17 minutes.

Once completed remove from the oven and toss with remaining butter mixture and Parmesan cheese. (Note: If the butter has harden, melt in microwave for 10-15 seconds. Serve immediately.

Notes: Feel free to serve with blue cheese or ranch. However, the wings are very flavorful you don’t need any dipping sauce.
