  • 2 lbs of chicken wings drums and wingettes separated, if frozen make sure they are fully thawed
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon of fresh oregano chopped
  • 1 tablespoon of fresh thyme chopped
  • ½ teaspoon of cumin
  • 1 teaspoon of Kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon of black pepper
  • Parmesan Garlic Sauce
  • ½ cup of unsalted butter 1 stick
  • 2 TBS garlic paste or 2 large garlic cloves finely minced
  • 2 TBS your favorite wing sauce
  • ¼ cup of chicken stock
  • 1 teaspoon of onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon of Kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon of fresh black pepper
  • 1 tsp minced fresh thyme
  • 1/2 tsp minced fresh oregano
  • ¼ cup of grated Parmesan cheese


  • Pat your wings dry with a paper towel and place them in a large bowl
  • In a smaller bowl, mix together the oil, lemon juice, oregano, thyme, cumin, salt and pepper and then whisk until incorporated.
  • Pour the mixture over your wings, scraping the bowl with a spatula to get every bit. Toss until the wings are evenly coated.
  • Cover and place the bowl in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to allow the wings to marinate.
  • Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Place wings on a baking sheet, spreading them out and bake for 40 minutes or until fully cooked. Halfway turn the wings with tongs a couple of times throughout the cooking process. Size of wings will dictate a longer or shorter cooking time.
  • While the wings bake, in a medium saute pan, add the butter, wing sauce, chicken stock, onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper to a small pot and stir until combined. Add in garlic paste (or fresh garlic) and bring to a simmer. Allow sauce to simmer for 6-7 minutes, reducing it slightly.
  • Remove the cooked chicken wings from the oven and place in a clean large bowl.
  • Pour the sauce over the wings tossing them well until coated and then sprinkle the Parmesan cheese and herbs over-top.
  • Toss well until all wings are coated.
  • Place on serving platter and enjoy!


I have had success both when baking my wings directly on a baking sheet, as well as a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil as well as by lining a large baking sheet with aluminum foil then placing a metal cooling rack on top of that and sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. The key is carefully turning your wings a few times to ensure all sides crisp up.
