Baked Parmesan Garlic Chicken Wings

What you’ll learn:

  • Oven bake chicken wings instead of frying them! Less mess, more flavor.
  • Chef Jesse Thomas’ secret herb formula
  • Optional blue cheese/Dijon mustard dipping sauce

This recipe for Baked Parmesan Garlic Chicken Wings is a must-try. If I could, I’d duct tape it front and center on my favorite recipes list. These, along with Momofuku’s Chicken Wings make me a very happy girl. Forget Buffalo wings, forget even the Hooters wings (I just heard my husband gasp). The next time you’re at the market, grab a couple pounds of wings and try this out.


But wait. It gets better.

The dipping sauce is a mixture of blue cheese dressing with Dijon mustard! The Recipe is from Chef Jesse Thomas of PizzAmore restaurant in Mount Dora.

    This recipe was AMAZING. So yummy. I cooked them the required 25 minutes and then coated them in the sauce and baked them 5 more minutes to make them a bit more crunchy. YUMMY!

    Im going to make these with frozen drumettes. Should I wait until they are done cooking or at least half way before I add the seasoning or go ahead and do it while they are still frozen?

        Is it okay to substitute fresh ingredients like spices and herbs for bottled ones and if so is there a real difference between a bottle of spice that 2.50 and one that costs 1.00 or is it just the brand?

        1. Post

          Hi Kumi, yes you can, but the herbs may burn a bit. You can buy cheap herbs, but the quality of the herbs may be poor. Some of these companies will use stems and leaves (vs just the best quality leaves). Herbs are expensive, so feel free to use the cheaper stuff. You can also buy an Italian herb blend and just use that, instead of buying the herbs separately.

    This is a great recipe. Next time I am going to use my homemade boneless chicken strips with the sauce coating and bake it on for 10 mind or so because I think that will be great too! Thanks for sharing the recipe.

    I loved this recipe but it isn’t finger food. Very oily from either the fat from the wings or too much oil. I’ll prepare this again with chicken breasts and serve with a couscous or quinoa. Very tastey.

    Oh, I had to pin this! We are sooooo going to do these! We may even tey them on the grill. Thanks for putting this out there!


    Oh my gosh this recipe… THIS RECIPE. I have caused two fires and about 3 oil spills trying to cook new things for the first time. I am proud to say that there were no accidents and everything came out perfect. THE FIRST TIME. It was delicious. And the cooking time was really low! One of the best chicken recipes I’ve ever made!

    OMG! My whole family – including one very picky 8 year old, LOVED these. I tossed them in the cheese and butter mixture before I cooked them. DELISH! Thanks!

    These were great! Came across this recipe through a random google search, but I’m bookmarking your site to try some of your other creations. I’m looking at you ‘fail proof prime rib’ πŸ˜€

    These had a great flavor. My wings skin didn’t get that crispy texture and by the pictures it looks like yours did. Did you broil them at all? I think next time I will broil to get them crispy.

    I’m trying these tonight with thighs and Cajun seasoning for the season salt. Can’t wait to have dinner!

  20. Elizabeth

    These were delicious! I followed the instructions without any change and loved them! My wings were also crispy after a few minutes of broil time. I will certainly make these again.

    These wings came out amazing!!! I’m just getting into the whole cooking thing and this recipe was the first thing I tried outside of the few things I knew how to cook. Very quick and easy. My boyfriends only critique for next time is that I let them cook for a little longer to get them a bit more crispy , but coming from him, someone who is an extremely picky eater, was a compliment.

    Hi Jaden, a young lady at work made and brought these BAKED PARMESAN GARLIC CHICKEN WINGS for a potluck, and they were SO DELICIOUS! I got the recipe from her so I could make them, but do you have the nutritional information? I have a diabetic in the home and he needs to know. The calculation for plain chicken is easy but I don’t know about all these added ingredients. thank you.

    Wow! I just made these….best chicken I’ve ever made thanks to you!my husband& I are obsessed with the ones from wing i can make them at home! Thank you!

    This recipe was terrific!! I did as the one person suggested and put the cheese mixture on and put them back in the oven for approximately 5 minutes until they turned brown. They came out nice and crispy. I also served this with a balsamic reduction as the dipping sauce. I will definitely be making these again soon.

    I found this recipe through the Yummly app. I thought it looked and sounded really good. Boy, was I wrong! This wasn’t “really good”, these wings were FANTASTIC. They were so tender on the inside and crispy on the outside. The only thing I did differently was to add a little Sriracha to the wing sauce. Next time I might also add some red pepper flakes because I just really, really like heat. Oh, I also made the dipping sauce far more mustard-y than it called for, added a little Sriracha there, and also some paprika. I love this recipe, and can’t wait to broil the leftovers for dinner tomorrow. Thank you!

    The ingredients list should be broken down into what part they are used for. Dip ingredients, rub ingredients, etc

    Where can I get raw chicken wings from? Is it best to get it fresh or frozen? Is there a frozen brand you can recommend?
