Ingredients

Chicken Wings

  • 4 lbs chicken wings (if frozen, thaw completely)
  • 1 tbsp aluminum free baking powder (not baking soda)
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • tsp pepper

Garlic Parmesan Sauce

  • ¼ cup butter melted
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp onion powder
  • tsp black pepper
  • ¼ cup (.25 oz) parmesan cheese grated

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 450°F. Line two sheet pans with foil and spray lightly with non-stick spray.
  • If wings are sitting in juices, drain over the sink for several minutes.
  • Use paper towels to pat the chicken wings as dry as possible. Toss into a large bowl, then add baking powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Stir well to coat the wings in the seasoning mixture.
  • Line wings on prepped sheet pans, leaving space in between each one. Bake for 30 minutes, then flip the wings with tongs and bake for 30 minutes more.
  • While chicken wings are baking, make the garlic parmesan sauce by combining the melted butter, garlic powder, onion powder, pepper, and parmesan cheese.
  • Once wings are finished baking, place in large bowl. Drizzle garlic parmesan sauce on top, then toss to coat. Serve immediately.

Notes

Tips & Tricks
  • Make sure to use aluminum free baking powder to avoid a metallic taste. 
  • The KEY to crispy wings is getting them as dry as possible before baking. Drain them well, then pat extra dry with paper towels. 
  • Use real parmesan cheese, preferably that you grate yourself.
 
Can I use baking soda instead of baking powder? 
  • No, baking soda can not be used instead. It will leave a very bitter taste on the wings. Make sure to use aluminum free baking powder for best results.
