Garlic Parmesan Chicken Wings

If I had to choose a favorite tailgating food, it would definitely be chicken wings! I had never really tried them until a few years ago, but once I did I fell hard. I love the crispy skin, the tender meat, and I love all the delicious flavor combinations. I’ve made spicy buffalo chicken wings and crispy baked chicken wings in the past, but these garlic parmesan chicken wings are a fun new favorite!

Garlic and parmesan are always one of my favorite flavor combinations, but when they’re combined with these wings, they are extra delicious! These wings are baked in the oven, not fried, but they still get the perfect crispy skin.

How to Bake Chicken Wings in the Oven

The secret to baking chicken wings and getting that same crispy skin is to use baking soda in the flour coating. I don’t know exactly what kind of magic it works, but the wings bake up golden brown and crispy every single time!

Once the wings are baked, you just toss them in a quick garlic parmesan butter sauce, and then they are ready to eat!

Tip For Baking Parmesan Chicken Wings

  • The  wings do get a little messy as they bake (as you can see above), so I like to bake them on a silicone baking liner for easier cleanup. Rinsing a silicone liner beats scrubbing a baking sheet any day, right?

These wings are the perfect appetizer or game day food! We like them so much that I sometimes just serve them for dinner (with a plate of fresh veggies on the side to balance things out a little). They’re best when they are hot out of the oven, and we love dipping them in homemade ranch or blue cheese dressing. They’re packed with flavor, and super delicious.

Also, they can be totally addicting… don’t say I didn’t warn you!
