I made this really easy, very flavourful and frankly, exciting dinner tonight and wanted to share.
These chicken wings are so irresistible! It’ll be really hard to control yourself around these; delicately salted, with a parmesan, garlic and herb sauce brushed over deliciously crispy wings, glistening on their platter, waiting to be savoured.
I cannot wait to serve this at my next get together!
2 1/2 pounds chicken wings. Drumettes and wingettes separated (tips discarded)
3 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
2 cloves of minced garlic
Pinch of cayenne pepper
Sauce: (to be brushed on just prior to serving)
2 tablespoon melted butter
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon chopped parsley
1 tablespoon parmesan cheese (plus extra for sprinkling)
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
Toss wings in the marinade until fully coated.
Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least three hours to overnight.
When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 425F
Place wings in a single layer on a cookie sheet which has been covered with parchment paper.
Bake until fully cooked and crispy. About 1hr
Note: To obtain an extra crispy skin, broil for a few minutes at the end of the cooking time. Keep a close eye on them though 😉
Remove wings from the oven. Working quickly, using tongs, place them onto paper towels to absorb excess fat. Brush with sauce and immediately move wings to a serving dish.
Sprinkle lightly with some more fresh parmesan if desired.
Serve hot & enjoy!
