One of my absolute favorite things that I can eat any time are chicken wings, even when I am not hungry! I pretty much love it with all kinds of sauce as long as it’s not super spicy. However, my number one flavor choice is this Baked Garlic Parmesan Chicken Wings. So crispy, so flavorsome and a must for trying if you enjoy ton load of garlic.

How to make the baked chicken wings?

It’s important to layer the wings on a cookie rack placed on a cookie sheet. If you place them directly on the cookie sheet, it wouldn’t turn out crispy. Also, it’s important to turn the chicken wings once in between to get the even mild brown coating all around.

The sauce for the Baked Chicken Wings

We both love the flavor of raw garlic and so, I didn’t mind it for the sauce. If you are not too fond of raw garlic, cook the minced garlic in butter for a while at low heat. This process would mellow down a flavor quite a bit. Make sure you use fresh garlic and freshly grated Parmesan cheese for the robust flavor.

Ever since then, I have made these Baked Garlic Parmesan Chicken Wings several times. I never got a chance to photograph it or share it with you guys because often we would prepare it just before dinnertime. Thanks to summer light, I managed to get a few shots this time.

These baked chicken wings are a big party pleaser. Serve it with some salad on the side and wash it down with cold beer.

Whenever a takeout menu includes wings, I just have to go for it. The first time that I had these garlic Parmesan wings was several years back at Wing Stop. Imagine my happiness when I found a place that serves such amazing variety of wings. Just so you know, this is not a sponsored post. I just truly like the place and hence the mention.

The only problem that I had ordering all those wings was the after effect of guilt that I would go through because of indulgence on so much deep-fried food. So, one day, we decided to go with the baked version. I checked several online recipes and gave it a go. Turns out, it’s half the effort and the wings come out crispier. A quick toss in sauce and it’s ready to serve.
