Baked Garlic Parmesan Chicken Wings

Ingredients

  • Chicken Wings
  • 3 pounds chicken wings or drumettes
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • Garlic Parmesan Sauce
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 tablespoons of butter
  • 2 heaping tablespoons of garlic 8-10 cloves, minced
  • 3 heaping tablespoons of minced parsley
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup of grated Parmesan cheese

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  • Rinse chicken wings and trim any excess skin. Do not remove the skin or you will lose the crispiness. Pat chicken dry.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together flour and seasonings. Add chicken and coat with the flour mixture. (You could also shake to coat in a large ziploc bag).
  • Prepare a large cookie sheet by covering with foil and spraying with cooking spray. *For even better results, use a wire baking rack on top of the baking sheet.
  • Arrange chicken on the cookie sheet or rack, at least an inch apart. 
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes, turning once after about 20 minutes. (If using the baking rack, flipping is not required). *If using only drumettes, they may take a little longer to cooker since they are bigger than traditional wings.
  • While the chicken is has about 8-10 minutes left, begin to make the sauce. In a medium saucepan, heat the butter and olive oil over medium heat. Once butter is melted add the minced garlic. Cook for about 3 minutes, then remove from heat. Stir in salt and chopped parsley.
  • Transfer the chicken to a large bowl. Pour the sauce over the chicken and toss to coat. Sprinkle with grated parmesan and serve immediately.
