My Favorite Garlic Parmesan Baked Chicken Wings

Yes, this is a baked chicken wing recipe. They aren’t fried.

But you’d never know it. These chicken wings are so super crispy and fall off the bone tender, you’ll wonder why you ever fried chicken wings before this.

Tips For Making The Best Crispy Oven Baked Wings

One of the tips for making crispy oven baked chicken wings is making sure you dry the chicken wings completely with paper towels. Because any moisture on the chicken is going to prevent the skin from crisping up to it’s full potential.

Another tip is getting the oven good and hot. People seem to be afraid to crank their oven up past 425 degrees, but that’s what it’s meant to do. As a result, you’ll get super crispy baked chicken wings without having to deep fry.

How To Make Garlic Parmesan Chicken Wings 

Season the chicken wings simply with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Place them on a wire rack on top of a baking sheet so they crispy up on the bottom too.

While the wings are baking you can get the ingredients together for the garlic parmesan sauce. The garlic parmesan sauce is mostly made up of butter, mayonnaise and parmesan cheese.

So there’s a little bit of fat going on here, guys, don’t be afraid, because chicken wings aren’t typically a low fat food. But they ARE a low carb food, so if you’re on a low carb diet you’re going to be in heaven right about now.

These chicken wings only have about 1.5 carbs per wing, so eat up my friends.

Can You Make Baked Chicken Wings Ahead Of Time?

Yes, you can. But it’s going to have to be in a couple of steps. These baked chicken wings are really best served right away, but if you are trying to save a little time here’s what you need to do…

Bake the chicken wings and let them cool. Store the wings in your refrigerator, uncovered, until you are ready to go. Then mix up the sauce ingredients and toss the wings and bake.

You might loose just a bit of the crispiness this way, but not too much to make a difference. 

Any time you put down a chicken wing recipe like this in front of someone, it seems like a party doesn’t it? Chicken wings are fun food, finger food, party food.

We make these crispy baked chicken wings ALL the time for any kind of party or just when the family is coming over but we get huge high fives when we whip these wings up for dinner, too.

What Kind Of Dipping Sauce Can You Use For These Wings?

These babies are so good all on their own, I promise you! But you can also dip away…

Most of the time when you go out for wings though they serve any kind of wings with ranch or blue cheese dressing. So both of those options are fine here, too.

Another option that we like to serve with these garlic parmesan chicken wings is a creamy caesar dressing. The parmesan and garlic flavors in caesar dressing go really well with these wings so give it a try!

How Much Garlic Parmesan Sauce Do You Put On The Wings?

First of all, we have to talk about here is how you like your garlic parmesan wings.

If you like them like how they serve them at Buffalo Wild Wings, super saucy, then you’re going to bake these wings, toss them in the sauce and serve. OR If you like them a less saucy, with more of the sauce baked on then you need to bake them, toss them in the sauce, and then bake them again.

That’s how we like them – baked again and super crispy – but it’s totally up to you. I can assure you that both ways are equally delicious, it’s all about your preference.

Now just add some more parmesan cheese and chopped parsley for garnish and get them on a plate. Whether you’re serving these baked chicken wings for appetizers at a party or a fun dinner at home, they are without a doubt going to be loved by everyone!

This Crispy Baked Garlic Parmesan Chicken Wings Recipe is perfect for appetizers or dinner! These easy to make wings are totally addicting!


  • 6 lbs. chicken wings
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • Caesar dressing on the side for dipping

For the Sauce

  • 2 sticks of butter, melted and cooled
  • 2 tablespoons chopped garlic
  • 3/4 cup grated parmesan cheese, plus more for topping
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black ground pepper

  6. Place the wings back on the rack and bake again for 8-10 minutes.
  7. Garnish with more chopped parsley and shredded parmesan cheese, then serve with caesar dressing on the side for dipping.

        1. As an estimate, there are about 4-5 chicken wings per pound. So this recipe can technically feed 6 people. I don’t like to put that in the recipe card because I have a teenager who eats about a dozen at a sitting, so it’s really depends on the crowd you’re serving or if you’re making these for dinner or for appetizers.

    1. Sorry to hear that Andy, this is a free recipe site that takes hours and hours of work on my end to bring you the best possible recipes and photos that I possibly can. Scrolling through a few ads is all you need to do to get the recipes! Good luck to you too.

  2. To anyone that reads blogs regularly, they should know that bloggers have ads all over the place to supplement their time & energy it takes to create these for others enjoyment. I agree that the ads are a tad annoying, but it is a job to do this and it beats asking for donations that no one will contribute to. Some people just want to have their cake and eat it too.

    Now that I’ve had MY 2 cents to the previous comment, I would like to say that I just discovered your recipe blog today and enjoy reading it, as well as, anticipating trying what I’ve found so far!! Thank you for sharing them!! I’m also going to share your site with my son, who considers himself a Foodie. Would love it if you had an email notification when you have new posts.

    1. Thank you for taking the time to comment here Beth! It does take a lot of time to get these recipes and posts together so I do appreciate it. If you go to my homepage, right below the social media icons it has a sign up area where you can put in your email and receive the new posts! Let me know if you have any trouble doing this. Thanks again!

    Any ideas on what i could substitute for mayonnaise? I have been using the sauce to toss wings from our air fryer in and we LOVE them, but mentally can’t get past the mayo part.

      1. Andrea

        No, I don’t like it at all. My husband is okay with it.

        I substituted sour cream the last time i made them, it made the sauce creamy, but separated much more than the mayo.

    1. The wings are actually baked, the only butter is in the sauce. I’m not sure how olive oil would work instead of the butter but you could give it a try!

    Dan I made these wings tonight and they were so freakin’ delicious! My boyfriend was so impressed and I told him to thank Dan. ???? So naturally I had to leave a comment. These wings are So worth it! Thanks!!

  5. Lord of the wings

    The sauce flavor was excellent but the texture of the chicken wing was disappointing because they weren’t crisp. Next time you will try to bake them uncovered and see if that helps

    1. Jim, these wings bake uncovered as per the recipe – and they are super crispy! If you did cover them while baking then, yes, they wouldn’t be crispy at all. I hope you try them again!

        It did t say in the recipe if the chicken wings were fresh or frozen. I am going to use a big bag of frozen. Hi Ken drummers and wings. Would there be any cooking time different?

    Well, I’ll never make wings any other way than this ever again. I’ve been searching for that perfect wing recipe for literally years, and I’ve finally found it. I’ve made these twice now, with perfect results both times. I’m making them again tonight because they’rejust so dang good. No substutions, just the recipe exactly as written, which is unheard of for me. My husband and son love these wings as much as I do. Restaurant wings pale in comparison to these, but I don’t mind, since they’re even easier than driving. Thank you!

    Delicious and easy!!!!! Sooo good! Thank you for the recipe!!!!! My husband and I both agree these are the best wings we’ve ever had!!! This will definitely be my go recipe for on. I do want to ad though that I always try the recipe as is at least the first time I make it but this time I only had frozen wings on hand and I baked them from frozen but the wings turned out extremely crispy but next time I’ll use fresh to see if there’s a huge difference because I also think that the mayo gives the sauce it’s unbeatable taste but I also think that when it’s added to the wings and then they’re baked again for 10 additional minutes, it helps to crisp them. Thank you again so much I’ll definitely continue to try your other recipes as well!

    1. Sounds great, Let me know which other recipes you try! We’ve made this recipe with frozen wings too and I don’t find a big difference, sometimes buying the wings frozen is easer!
