How to Make This Garlic Parmesan Chicken Wings Recipe

  • Heat oven to 425°Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray both sides of a wire rack with nonstick cooking spray. Set the wire rack over the baking sheet.
  • In a large saucepan, bring water, vinegar, salt, bay leaf, ½ teaspoon Herbes de Provence and onion powder to a boil. Add chicken and return to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer 15 minutes. Transfer chicken to a cooling rack set over paper towels for 15 minutes.
  • Place the minced garlic on a cutting board and sprinkle with a pinch of kosher salt. Mash the garlic salt together until a paste forms. (Alternately, mash the minced garlic and salt in a mortar and pestle until smooth.)
  • In a large mixing bowl, mix together mashed garlic salt, olive oil, black pepper, onion powder, red pepper flakes and remaining ½ teaspoon Herbes de Provence. Add par-cooked chicken wings, breadcrumbs and ¼ cup Parmesan cheese; toss to coat.
  • Place chicken on the prepared baking rack & sheet and sprinkle with the remaining ¼ cup cheese.
  • Bake wings at 425°F for 20 minutes, rotate the pan and flip wings over. Bake another 15-20 minutes or until cooked through (165°F-170°F internal temperature) and golden brown.

The coating on this chicken is so full on flavor and crispy like wings should be. It’s amazingly cheesy and garlicky and the method is easy. Because these wings are baked, they are also way healthier than fried and you only need a little oil for these bad boys.
