Of the ones that I’ve tried, the dry parmesan coating is the best. An undercoating of garlic butter and a generous dusting of seasoned parmesan cheese make the absolute best party wings.

This recipe required three steps prior to cooking the wings. First, you will need to brine the chicken to season it through. Next, you will need to make the garlic butter. Finally, you will need to make a batch of seasoned parmesan. Once the wings are cooked, you will coat them in the mixes before serving.

Naked wings are bland and don’t take on the flavor of the coating as well compared to when they are brined. To prepare the wings I use a dry spice brine. The wings are marinated in a salt heavy spice mix for 3-6 hours. They are then rinsed before cooking.
