Chicken wings are one of my favorite snacks on Super Bowl Sunday and for the past few years, I’ve always made my usual Lemon Pepper Wings. This year, I wanted to add a couple more flavors, a Buffalo Maple that’s sweet and slightly spicy and this Garlic Parmesan that’s savory and garlicky.
I’m sharing 2 chicken wing recipes this week for you to add to your game day spread. You can never go wrong with serving these because they’re an instant crowd pleaser! These Garlic Parmesan Chicken Wings are inspired by this joint near my place called Wing Stop. Whenever my mom and my brother Carlo would come over, we would walk over to Wing Stop and order a bunch of tasty wings. My mom loves the garlic parmesan one and I’ve always wanted to re-create it so I finally did!
Baking these in the oven on a baking rack helps the wings cook evenly on both sides so the skin crisps up nicely without using a ton of oil. It also helps drain excess fat so the wings do not become soggy as they cook.
I love chicken wings so much that I can eat this entire recipe by myself. Give me a big plate of carrots and celery stick to go with it and I’m one happy camper!
Garlic Parmesan Chicken Wings
- 2 lbs chicken wings
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 2 tbsp ghee
- 4 garlic cloves minced
- 1/4 cup parmesan cheese shredded or grated
- 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
- 1 tsp red pepper flakes (optional)
Preheat oven to 395F.
Cover a baking sheet with foil and place a baking rack on top.
Pat chicken wings dry (remove as much moisture as you can). Season with sea salt.
Place chicken wings on the rack making sure they are evenly spaced out.
Bake chicken wings for 15 minutes. Flip and bake for another 15 minutes.
Turn the oven on high broil and broil for 5 minutes until the skin turns golden brown. Make sure to watch it closely so it doesn't burn!
While chicken is cooking, heat a small pan over medium heat.
Add ghee and garlic.
Saute for 1 minute until garlic is fragrant. Set aside to cool.
In a small bowl, mix parmesan cheese, black pepper and red pepper flakes.
Once the chicken is cooked, toss it with the ghee-garlic mixture until evenly coated.
Sprinkle the parmesan seasoning on the chicken and toss until combined.
Pin this for later!
