Garlic Parmesan Wings

Chicken wings, dipped in a butter and garlic sauce and rolled in seasoned Parmesan cheese.

Garlic Parmesan Wings

This recipe for Baked Garlic Parmesan Wings was one that, back in my low carb days of eating (oh, yes I did), we LCers used to eat a lot. Chicken wings, and a combo of butter and garlic with Parmesan on chicken wings, was a pretty popular version that everybody loved. The biggest upside of doing a low carb diet is that you do get to indulge in fats!

One day The Cajun and I were visiting at his Mama's house, and she was baking some wings in barbecue sauce for her grandson. My mother in law is the kind of person who would give you the shirt off of her back, so you really have to be careful what you say around her. I happened to mention in passing that I loved barbecue wings and before you know it, she was insisting that I go home with a bag of individually quick frozen jointed wings from her freezer. Yep, that'd be my mother in law! Those wings became these.

Here's how to make them.

Recipe: Garlic Parmesan Wings

©From the Kitchen of Deep South Dish
Prep time: 10 min |Cook time: 1 hour | Yield: About 4 to 6 servings

  • 3 to 4 pound bag of chicken wings
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) of butter
  • 3 to 4 garlic cloves, smashed
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese (in the can)
  • 1 tablespoon of dried parsley
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon of dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon of Cajun seasoning (like Slap Ya Mama), or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon of kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper

Bring chicken to room temperature. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Disjoint the wings if desired, and reserve tips for another use. Melt the butter with the garlic and cook over low heat to allow the garlic to infuse the butter for about 10 minutes; remove from heat and set aside to slightly cool. In a separate bowl, mix together the Parmesan, parsley, garlic powder, rosemary, Cajun seasoning, salt and pepper.

Line a rimmed baking pan with aluminum foil. Dip the wings into the butter, then roll in the cheese mixture and place on prepared tray. Reduce heat to 350 degrees F and bake, for about 1 hour, turning halfway; total cooking time will be dependent on the size and thickness of the wings. Plate and garnish with a sprinkle of Parmesan, if desired.
