Crispy Baked Parmesan Chicken Wings – These chicken wings are baked crisp to a golden perfection, then smothered in a Parmesan cheese, parsley and chili flakes mixture. It’s finger licking good!

So you like wings, don’t you? Do you like them fried? You probably do. But wings don’t need to be fried. I NEVER fry chicken wings. Why would you want to fry wings? Wings excel in the oven, my friends. They’re the perfect little pieces of meat surrounded by a nice layer of fat that when baked in the oven, the fat slowly melts away causing the wings to perfectly crisp up to a golden perfection. Baked chicken wings are perfection, most of the time I just like them with salt and pepper but then sometimes I like them saucy and sticky and other times I prefer them smothered in Parmesan cheese.

Parmesan cheese with loads of parsley, salt and pepper, some garlic powder and lots of red pepper chili flakes. Oh yeah, you want those chili flakes because that’s how you kick it up a notch and go from ordinary but still good crispy baked wings to extraordinary crispy baked wings with a kick! And I loaded these babies with Parmesan cheese because I’m nuts about it. I think it’s funny that some peeps don’t like Parm cheese because they think it smells like dirty feed, but you need the good stuff, and grate it yourself. The good stuff is really good, still smelly but in a good way. I eat Parmesan cheese on its own, that’s how much I love it, and yeah I do put it on everything!

But baked wings are to be appreciated. All you need is to have faith that they will come out nice and crispy and perfection. Then just load them up with your faves, in this case this Parmesan mixture, and life is all good again.
