How To Make Crispy Oven 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.
One of the tips for making crispy oven baked chicken wings is making sure you dry the chicken wings completely with paper towels. 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. Otherwise there would be an option to go up to 500 degree now would there?
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…but that’s ok. Chicken wings are not 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 These 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 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.
Do You Need A Dipping Sauce For This Chicken Wing Recipe?
Definitely not, these babies are so good all on their own I promise you!
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 this recipe so give it a try!
2 Ways To Make These Garlic Parmesan Chicken 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!
