    How to Make

    If you don’t have fresh garlic, 1 tablespoon of garlic powder can be used instead.

    I sometimes double the garlic parmesan wing sauce and set half aside so I can use this for dipping too.

    1. Pat dry chicken wings using a paper towel getting them as dry as possible. This helps make those skins crispy and also gets the coating to stick.
    2. In a small bowl combine olive oil, garlic, parmesan cheese, parsley, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes (optional).

    Tips for Crispy Baked Wings:

    You want that deep fried crispy texture so make sure to follow these easy tips for the perfect Garlic Parmesan Wings:

    • Dry the Wings: I like to pat a paper towel on wings to absorb any extra liquid. I find the better you dry the wings the more crispy they become.
    • Toss in Corn Starch: The cornstarch will naturally absorb liquid, but hopefully your wings are dry that the cornstarch will coat the wings and still have a nice white coat on them.
    • Oven Temperature: 400 Degrees. A nice hot oven makes a difference. Let your oven preheat before baking
    • Cookie Sheet or Baking Rack: Cook on Baking Sheet or Baking Rack. I like to line cookie sheet with parchment paper for easy clean up.
    • Don’t Over Crowd: Leave space in between each wing. This allows heat to reach everywhere and makes for the best crispy wings possible.

    Dipping Sauces

    It’s super important to serve dipping sauces with your homemade crispy chicken wings. I love ranch as a dipping sauce, so it’s always a welcome sauce.

    However, for Garlic Parmesan Chicken Wings I also love to dip in:

    How to Reheat Chicken Wings

    It’s easy to reheat wings. Of course if you own an air fryer that would be ideal. Set for 350 degrees for a couple minutes to heat through.

    You can also reheat chicken wings under the broiler for a few minutes as well. I do like to lower the rack one notch.

    Do you ever wonder why Chicken Wings are served with a stick of Celery or even Carrot Sticks? Typically Chicken Wings have bold strong flavors and many are spicy too. A stick of celery or carrot will cleanse your palate and help to tone down those bold flavors too.

    The microwave works, but meat often ends up a little rubbery and has the tendency to explode. Make sure you cover them with a paper towel to prevent messes.

    Storage & Freezing

    As always, leftover chicken wings can be covered and stored in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days.

    A fair warning, in my home, chicken wings come out of the oven and a hoard of teenage boys come scrambling. Don’t hesitate to double the batch to ensure you will get a few too!

    I don’t recommend freezing cooked chicken wings. Although it is totally possible, they thaw fairly dry and always need a new coat of sauce.
