Garlic Parmesan Wings—crispy garlic butter wings coated in seasoned parmesan cheese. The best game-day wings ever!
Garlic Parmesan Wings have become increasingly popular in recent days. With its popularity, there’s also been a varied range of preparations from copycat recipes. 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.
What you need to make Garlic Parmesan Wings
Chicken wings sections
Oil for frying
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.
How to season naked chicken wings with a dry brine
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.
How to fry naked wings
Heat a quart of oil to 375 degrees in a dutch oven. Fry the wings in batches for 10-12 minutes until golden brown and 165 degrees internally.
Then toss them into the garlic butter followed by the seasoned parmesan cheese.
