Garlic parmesan wings are a yummy way to enjoy chicken wings (and the perfect alternative to our fave baked buffalo wings for those who don’t like spice). These are oven baked, which means less grease, less mess, and more yum! They can even be made in an air fryer, if you have one!
How to Make Garlic Parmesan Wings
Once you see how easy it is to make baked Garlic Parmesan Chicken wings at home you’ll want to make them all of the time.
- Separate the flat part of the wing from the drummets, and snip the tips off.
- Pat the wings dry with a paper towel. Don’t skip this step, or your wings won’t crisp up in the oven.
- Shake the wings in a plastic bag with flour and baking powder to coat.
- Place on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake, turning once.
- When crispy, remove and toss with your prepared garlic parmesan cheese sauce.
- Turn the oven up to 475°F and bake the coated wings a few minutes more if desired.
You can make a slight variation to the recipe here, to keep your low-carb dieters happy. For keto garlic parmesan wings, just skip the flour and only toss the wings with baking powder. The ketogenic dieters will also love it if you serve garlic parmesan wings with a raw veggie plate of broccoli and cauliflower florets, and celery sticks.

To give your garlic parmesan wing sauce maximum flavor, buy a whole parmesan cheese wedge from the dairy aisle, and grate it just before making the garlic parmesan wing sauce using a fine grater.

Pre-shredded parmesan cheese doesn’t work so well in this recipe.
