Are you a chicken wing fan? I am! I love alllllll the chicken wings, especially when it comes to these Parmesan Chicken Wings. I like to be outside of the box.

Now don’t get me wrong I love a good buffalo or bbq version but when it consists of cheese like these, I really cannot hold back. They are just that good

Also they are super simple, you pretty much mix everything together, coat and bake and you are good to go! Yes these are baked, that is one of my favorite parts as well.

With a nice crispy texture on the outside from the crispness of the parmesan, and juicy inside of the chicken you have the perfect texture combination.

My husband literally beds me to make these wings almost every weekend, which is fine because I love them just as much so whenever I get the chance to make them I do.

Game day, movie night, get togethers or whenever! There is always a great time to whip up a batch of these Parmesan Chicken Wings, trust me – you will fall in love with the flavor.

Some of my other favorite appetizers we have on our site include: Brown Sugar Bacon Little Smokies, Roasted Garlic Cream Cheese Dip and Parmesan Potatoes.

HOW TO MAKE PARMESAN CHICKEN WINGS:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Prepare a baking pan lined with parchment paper.
  2. In a mixing bowl, toss together the melted butter and chicken wings. Make sure to coat chicken wings evenly with the butter.
  3. In another mixing bowl mix together 1 ½ cups of the grated parmesan, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, paprika, salt, and pepper.
  4. Carefully coat the chicken wings with the parmesan spice mixture, gently press to adhere. Then arrange the wings on the baking pan about 2 inches apart.
  5. Bake in the oven until the skin turns golden brown, approximately 20 to 25 minutes until an internal temperature reaches 165°F. Flip the wings over halfway through so they brown evenly. 
  6. Serve immediately and garnish with minced parsley and the extra parmesan on top. Serve with parmesan or ranch dressing on the side for dipping.

CAN I USE CHICKEN WINGETTES?

Absolutely, if you do not want to have to break down each wing individually you can use wingettes for this recipe instead!

CAN I USE FROZEN CHICKEN WINGS? 

Yes, technically you can. We like to use fresh wings as it takes less time but we have used frozen on occasion for this recipe. We do like to let our frozen wings defrost, so if you are using frozen just place them in the refrigerator the night before making.

You will know when your wings are done when the internal temperature is at 165 degrees F. A kitchen thermometer is a great tool to have on hand.

WHAT IS THE BEST DIPPING SAUCE?

While these Parmesan Chicken Wings are perfect on their own, but we also love to dip these in ranch and blue cheese. Or use any of your favorite dipping sauce.

HOW TO STORE:

These can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. These can also be frozen, place cooled wings in an freezer container where they will keep for up to 3 months.

Defrost in the refrigerator overnight, to reheat place in the oven or in the air fryer and heat until warmed through.

TIPS AND TRICKS:

  • If you don’t want to break down wings you can use wingettes for these.
  • Frozen wings can be used, but make sure you defrost them overnight, it gives the best results.
  • Make sure you use freshly grated parmesan cheese, this helps with the crispy coating.
  • Easily double this recipe to have more on hand.
  • These can be frozen, see my tips above.
  • Dip in your favorite dippings sauces.
