Here’s a step-by-step guide to making these mouthwatering baked chicken wings:

- Plant-Based butter
- Garlic powder
- Dairy-Free Parmesan cheese

1. Preheat your oven to 4oo°F (220°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil for easy cleanup.
2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the chicken wings, olive oil, garlic powder, paprika, salt, and black pepper. Toss until the wings are evenly coated with the seasonings.
3. Arrange the wings in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet (or wire rack). Make sure to leave space between each wing for optimal crispness.
4. Refrigerate wings for 30 minutes.
5. Remove wings from the fridge and spray/coat both sides of the wings with olive, ensuring there are no dry flour spots.
6. Bake the wings for approximately 25 minutes, flip, and bake for an additional 15 minutes.
7. While the wings are baking, prepare your garlic parmesan sauce by stirring melted butter, grated parmesan, garlic powder, seasoning salt, and hot sauce together in a large bowl.
8. Once the wings are finished cooking, toss them in the sauce mixture, ensuring all wings are evenly coated.
9. Transfer the wings to a serving platter, garnish with fresh parsley, and serve immediately. These crispy baked garlic parmesan chicken wings are best enjoyed while hot and fresh!
Commonly asked questions about preparing crispy baked chicken wings:
Q1: How do I achieve crispy wings without deep frying?
A: The key to achieving crispy wings without deep frying is to bake them at a high temperature (around 400°F or 220°C). This helps render the fat from the skin and create that desired crispiness. Additionally, make sure to place the wings in a single layer on the baking sheet, allowing air to circulate around them and promote even browning.
Q2: Can I use frozen wings for this recipe?
A: While fresh wings are preferred, you can use frozen wings as well. However, it’s important to thaw them completely before seasoning and baking. Thawing the wings in the refrigerator overnight is the safest method, as it prevents the growth of bacteria.
Q3: How can I make the wings less spicy or more spicy?
A: If you prefer milder wings, you can reduce or omit the amount of paprika and black pepper in the seasoning mixture. For those who enjoy a spicier kick, you can add a pinch of cayenne pepper or your favorite hot sauce to the seasoning mix.
Q4: Can I make a larger batch of wings for a crowd?
A: Absolutely! Simply double or triple the ingredients as needed. However, keep in mind that you may need to adjust the baking time accordingly. Ensure that all the wings are arranged in a single layer on the baking sheet, and you might need to use multiple baking sheets or bake the wings in batches.
