Cooked in a buttery sauce with parmesan cheese and sharp notes of garlic, these juicy and tender Garlic Parmesan Chicken Wings really pack in the flavor. Their mild sauce pairs well with any dressing, but the deep, rich flavor profile and delightfully crispy skin of these wings make them great plain too.



For the Wings

  • 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
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley


  1. Preheat the oven to 450°F.
  2. Season the wings with the salt, pepper and garlic powder and place on a rack on top of a baking sheet covered with foil.
  3. Bake the wings for 35-40 minutes.
  4. While the wings are baking start the sauce by adding all of the ingredients to a bowl and whisking together. The butter will separate a little as it sits, that’s ok, just whisk it together again before you toss the wings.
  5. Once the wings are done, add them to the bowl with the sauce.
  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 dressing on the side for dipping.
