Mouthwatering baked Garlic Parmesan Chicken Wings are the perfect party appetizer, game day food or tasty snack. They can be prepared with either fresh or frozen wings and are always a hit. I love to serve them on movie night with Cream Cheese Wontons and Pork Dumplings.
Fall will be here before we know it and it will be all things football and basketball. Is there a better way to enjoy friends, family and good food? These Garlic Parmesan Chicken wings are delicious, easy and perfect for game day. Better yet this weekend is father’s day and this garlic Parmesan chicken wings recipe would hit the spot just right. These beauties are baked not fried and the recipe can accommodate both frozen and fresh. You can serve with any kind of dipping sauce but my favorites are blue cheese and ranch dressing. They are coated in garlic, Parmesan cheese and a perfect blend of spices! They are so full of tantalizing taste bud flavors!!
How do you make Garlic Parmesan Chicken Wings?
First arrange your chicken wings in a single layer on a baking sheet that has been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray or covered with aluminum foil that has been coated with nonstick baking spray. I use an old cookie sheet for these. Bake them until they are lightly browned flipping halfway through the baking process. It usually takes about 40 minutes to lightly brown.
While they are cooking melt the butter and add the finely shredded Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, onion powder, pepper and parsley. Gently fold in the wings and stir to coat. Return the wings to the baking sheet and bake an additional 10-20 minutes depending on how crispy you like them. For added crispness turn the broiler on for the last few minutes of cooking but keep a close eye on them because broilers are very unpredictable. If desired garnish with additional parsley and fresh Parmesan. Serve with ranch or blue cheese dressing.

- I like my wings extra crispy. You should adjust the time based on how crispy you like them.
- For ease with clean up spray your baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray or line your baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper.

Combine the butter, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, onion powder, pepper and parsley. Gently fold the wings in the butter mixture pressing to coat. Place the wings back in the air fryer in a single layer with a little space between them. Cook for another 10 minutes turning halfway through.
