Roasted Garlic and Parmesan Chicken Wings

My family and I have been visiting a local restaurant in town known as Buffalo Wild Wings. You have probably heard of it, and it is basically bar grub such as wings, burgers, flatbreads, and the like. When it first opened we were pretty stoked as the food was half way decent, the service was good, and it was a place where the kids could agree on. Over the course of the past year, if not more, service has gone down hill, and in my opinion so has their food. Their wings are becoming rubbery, even somewhat cold on one occasion, and their nachos, which both my wife and I love, are never consistent. Point of the story is two things; we stopped going, and I figure out how to make their garlic and parmesan sauce, which is finger licking delicious, and I’m not one to lick my fingers if you know what I’m saying.

Roasted Garlic and Parmesan Chicken Wings

I’m a sucker for really good wings, dry or wet, so why not take a chance and make them your own, right? I’m also into baked chicken wings, and a bit on the drier side, but you make them any way you desire. This sauce has that perfect tang, with awesome roasted garlic flavor. They were hard to stop eating, let’s just put it that way.

Let’s get started.

Ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 8 cloves garlic, skin on
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 3 tbsp parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried marjoram
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
  • Generous pinch of red pepper flakes
  • Generous pinch of parsley flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 24-36 Baked or Fried Chicken wings

Start by getting a sheet of aluminum foil out, and place the garlic cloves on top. Drizzle with the olive oil, and place in a 350 degree oven for about 30 minutes. Remove, and let cool.

During this time, add the remaining ingredients to a small mixing bowl.  Once the garlic is cooled, remove from the skins, and mash into small bowl, then mix well into the sauce. Set this sauce, covered, in the refrigerator for at least one hour to let the flavors merry.

How to make garlic parmesan chicken wings

Deep fry or bake your wings until the are fully cooked and crispy. I like to bake mine. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Use two baking sheets if you have to. place the chicken onto the baking sheet, and place in the preheated oven for 1 hour and 30 minutes. Turn once around 60 minutes. After 1 1/2 hours, turn off the oven, and let them sit in there for another 15 minutes.

Once you are ready to eat and the wings are fully cooked, add them to a larger mixing bowl. Add in as much or as little sauce, and coat to your liking. Give them a nice toss and dig in.

The result is awesome. Perfectly crisp chicken wings with the roasted garlic and parmesan sauce just sold me that I no longer need to visit the longer Buffalo Wild Wings, plus I make better nachos to boot! Hope you enjoy!

Thank you for visiting my website. Truly, I do appreciate it. My free time and stress reliever is cooking for my family, friends, and everyone in between. The recipes you find on this site are those that I have either created, been part of, or those that I simply enjoy and have made my own in some shape, form, or other. My focus has always been on comfort food, because at the end of a long work day, you want something comforting. I currently am the father of three children, and married to a wonderful wife of thirteen years. There is nothing fancy with these recipes, just simple, and I will admit, not so simple ingredients, and a simple kitchen corner I can call my own. I learned early on that cooking and bringing family together was very important. After all, this notion of being together at dinner time was instilled early on by my parents. There are many memories of being in the kitchen with my parents, watching them cook, or preparing meals, or those home cooked smells while waiting for dinner. My parents who worked full-time, always had home cooked meals during the week, with the exception of Friday nights where we would enjoy a Wisconsin fish fry, and often on late afternoons on Sunday, where we would order Ann's pizza. I tend to cook by making things up. As a home cook, I think you have to take chances, and add or subtract ingredients that make up a dish, and make them your own. Remember to taste, and taste often. If a dish has potential, try it again, and make it your own. You should also note that I do not count calories, or break down recipes into grams of anything. To me, that's a bit boring. My philosophy is that if the food is good, eat it, and eat it in moderation. Life is just too short not to enjoy good food.

  1. Really good recipe. I didnt have the marjoram thyme basil or parsley. I substituted with italian seasoning and added some onion powder and doubled up on the parmesan. Very flavorful and no msg or other poison you would find a BWW. Only thing is i used 7 whole wings and it just covered them. So i would at least double the recipe for the amount of wings it says it covers.
