Chicken wings may just be the ideal finger food. They’re perfect as a snack, appetizer or even a meal. Plus, you can create an endless variety of dishes simply by swapping out spices, sauces and flavors. And, for those of us who like our food with a little kick, chicken wings can pack a spicy punch with the right recipe. We’ve found some awesome recipes for Crispy Baked Garlic Parmesan Wings that are sure to get the taste buds tingling.
You may have previously wondered if it’s possible to have a healthier version of your beloved chicken wings that still leave them nice and crispy. Joyful Healthy Eats has a recipe that challenges the idea that a baked wing is a soggy wing.
Making this recipe even better? These wings only require five minutes of prep time. It doesn’t get easier than that! After drizzling your pat-dried wings in olive oil, salt and pepper, pop them into the oven for a few minutes in the broiler. The high heat of the broiler nicely browns the skin, giving them an awesome crunch. Joyful Healthy Eats also recommends using a wire rack if you have one to ensure that your wings get crispy on both sides.
While the wings are in the oven, take some time to whip up a finger-licking, delicious sauce using butter, fresh garlic, salt and pepper, red pepper flakes, smoked paprika and parmesan cheese. After you pull your wings out of the oven, coat them in the sauce.
The final step: adding in a little bit of extra parmesan for garnish, of course.
If you love foods with plenty of seasoning, we have an option for you too. The recipe for Souffle Bombay’s Crispy Baked Parmesan Garlic Wings seems to pack a whole lot of flavor into each bite. This version calls for marinating the wings in lemon, cumin, fresh oregano and thyme — all before they even go into the oven. After baking, the wings get another flavor infusion, this time in the form of a garlicky butter sauce, as well as even more fresh cut herbs and parmesan cheese.
Yes, this recipe does require a few more ingredients and some extra prep time. But if the wings taste as good as they look, it’ll probably be worth the extra 15 minutes. Just feast your eyes on the final product:
So fire up the oven, it’s time to bake some truly tasty wings!
