Who doesn’t love a really good chicken wing?? These Crispy Baked Parmesan Garlic Wings are a delicious alternative to typical hot wings and bonus! These babies are oven baked. No need to fry wings at home when baking them turns out just as good (and easier too).
It took me many, many years to get on the chicken wing bandwagon. Call me a princess, but I had always liked my chicken boneless. I wanted my wings boneless but I truly had wing envy every time everyone around me was oohing and aahing about their wing order. So, I finally toughened up and jumped on that party train!
I only fry a handful of things at home and wings are not one of them. I found that baking or grilling wings end up just as delicious and so much easier, especially when making a bunch of chicken wings vs frying them.
The Parmesan Garlic Sauce on these wings is delicious! Your fingers will end up as delicious as the wings! Don’t waste a drop!
My favorite wing recipe had always been my Grilled Asian Style Wings, which I have made for many a party and sports watching gathering. Second is a Cajun rub I do on wings that my husband and I love. Since making these Crispy Baked Parmesan Garlic Wings, however, the Cajun has been knocked to third place.
I couldn’t even get through taking shots of these wings without taking a big bite! The perils of food blogging are real, lol! Just ask my waistline!
Which do you enjoy more? The drummette or the wing part? Me I like the wing part as seen above. Sometimes you can find fresh chicken wings already cut (love that). If not, frozen usually are or buy fresh and carefully cut them yourself.
Hope you try these wings out! Tag me with a pic on Instagram at @soufflebombay if you do! Love to see yours! I came across these wings on the website How To Feed A Loon. I adjusted the recipe a bit and baked them vs frying. Yummmm!
