These Garlic Parmesan Wings are baked, not fried! Each crispy chicken wing is coated in a buttery Garlic Parmesan coating that is absolutely addicting!
I am always up for chicken wings! They are the first thing I go to at any party or game day event. I like them saucy and spicy enough to make my tongue tingle!
But after I made this Dry Rub Chicken Wing recipe, I realized there was more to life than sauced up chicken wings. Don’t get me wrong, saucy wings are still one of the best things on earth, but dry rub wings are quickly taking a spot at the top.
What Do Garlic Parmesan Wings Taste Like?
In a word….Heaven. No seriously, these wings taste like buttery garlic bread on a chicken wing! The garlic is subtle but the cheese is not.
The wings have just the right about of golden, crisp flavor. It is one beautiful combination of flavors.
How To Make Garlic Parmesan Dry Rub Wings
For this recipe, I use a 2lb bag of frozen chicken pieces that have been thawed, rinsed and patted dry. I usually just by the bagged wings from my local Kroger; sometimes I use the drummettes as well. Just make sure they have thawed completely.
Toss the wings with a little vegetable oil in a large bowl. The oil will help the seasoning mixture adheres to the chicken skin plus it will ensure that the chicken wings bake up nice and crispy.
*Note* you could use olive oil to coat your wings, but the taste might overpower the seasoning, where vegetable oil is pretty mild in comparison.
Now for the seasoning. This blend is very simple and you truly only need a handful of ingredients. I coat my wings with grated Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. I used a cracked pepper blend, but honestly plain old pepper is all you need.
You could use minced garlic from a jar or even fresh, however, I would pulse the minced garlic together with the Parmesan and a mini food chopper. You don’t want large chunks of garlic on your wings because garlic burns quite easily and quickly.
Arrange your wings in a single layer on a baking sheet. It is REALLY important that they are baking in a single layer to ensure even cooking for all the wings. I like to line my baking sheet with a wire rack. This allows the heat to surround the wing during the entire baking process.
The wings take about 45 minutes total to bake up golden and crisp!
I like to serve these as is or sometimes I will serve them with a garlic aioli sauce that takes minutes to whip up. The sauce adds a little more garlic flavor to your wings!
These baked chicken wings are better than fried chicken for sure and they taste better than any restaurant wing too! You could totally use this rub for any of your chicken recipes. It is a versatile flavor combination that works with any protein!
Dry Rub Wing Tips and Tricks
Make sure your wings have thawed completely and that you pat them dry. This will prevent a wet wing, the seasoning will stick to the skin much better if the wings are dry, to begin with.
Feel free to substitute or add more or different seasoning. Lemon zest or white pepper would add more spice and would blend nicely with the Parmesan cheese. Adding a splash of lemon juice would add a bright, fresh flavor.
Make sure you do not crowd the baking pan. An even layer of wings will ensure that they all cook evenly. The wings will need to be turned only once during baking.
How To Reheat Dry Rub Chicken Wings
While you can certainly microwave these dry rub wings (or any wing really), I find the best method is to reheat the wings in the oven. Arrange your leftover wings on a foil-lined baking sheet and reheat at 350 for about 15 minutes.
Just a reminder to be sure to wash your hands when touching raw poultry.
What You Will Need For This Recipe:

Are Garlic Parmesan Wing Keto?
This recipe is not quite Keto friendly because of the vegetable oil. To make these wings Keto, bake the wings with salt and pepper only. Heat butter and garlic powder in a small saucepan until melted. When the wings are ready, toss the warm wings in the melted butter mixture. Serve garnished with parsley if desired.
