If you’re a fan of sticky, spicy buffalo wings, these garlic parmesan chicken wings are a contender. The garlic-parmesan sauce packs a punch and is so flavorful it just compliments the wings. A great way to bring at potlucks or family gatherings. It’s easy to make and guaranteed to be a hit!

Prepping the wings

If you can’t find pre-cut chicken wings or sometimes called “party wings” you can easily do it at home. By bending the wings back at the joint to loosen the joint. Using a knife or kitchen shears, cut through the joint to separate the flat part and the “drumettes”. Snip the tips off and pat dry to remove moisture for crispier wings.

Fry ’em or bake them?

Whether you choose to fry or bake the wing is entirely up to you. I decided to double fry for an extra crispy chicken even when tossed with the garlic-parmesan sauce. If you prefer less oil splatter then you can bake the wings. Coat wings with oil and season with salt and pepper then arrange in a rack. Bake in pre-heated oven at 400°F for 40-45 minutes then toss in garlic-parmesan sauce.

Tips for best results

To reduce oil splatter, pat the wings dry with paper towels. This will also ensure they are crispy.

Make the garlic-parmesan sauce in advance, just reheat the sauce before tossing freshly fried chicken wings.
