Parmesan Garlic Chicken Wings are great party food. Recently, we had some parmesan garlic chicken wings at a local restaurant and they were finger licking good. Our family loves garlic, so when I recreated this recipe at home, I tossed the cooked wings with fresh garlic in addition to grated Parmesan cheese.
These wings are healthier than most chicken wing recipes because I used my Char Broil Oil-Less Turkey Fryer to “fry” the wings. I bought this oil-less fryer last Thanksgiving and it works great for chicken wings and chicken drumsticks as well.
No oil is necessary to “fry” the wings. The only oil I added was extra virgin olive oil after the wings were cooked so the Parmesan cheese would stick nicely to the wings. You can also cook the chicken wings in an air fryer or broil them in the oven.
My kids loved these wings and I have to say I think my version was better than the restaurant’s. More garlicky and more cheesy.
