Ain't No Thing But A Chicken Wing

Monday night, we had garlic parmesan wings for dinner and they were really, really tasty. It was also the first time I'd cooked wings for us on a weeknight, so it was a nice little way to shake up the routine.

I found the recipe via Pinterest, natch, and I had all of the ingredients already on hand. Big win.

So, from (original recipe here), here you go!

G A R L I C   P A R M E S A N   W I N G S 

2 lb. chicken wings
1/2 stick butter, melted
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp. dried parsley
1 1/2 c. freshly grated Parmesan, divided
kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper

Place chicken wings in a large slow-cooker. In a large bowl, mix together butter, garlic, parsley, and 1 cup Parmesan and season with salt and pepper. Pour mixture over chicken wings and stir to coat. Cover and cook on high until cooked through, 2 1/2 to 3 hours (April's note: I put them in on low for 6 hours). Heat broiler. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and pour wings onto them. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup Parmesan and broil until crispy, 5 minutes (April's note: I did about 3 minutes on one side, then turned them over and added a little extra Parm, and then three minutes on the other side.)

I made coleslaw to serve alongside the wings and also tossed some carrot sticks in olive oil, cumin, salt and pepper and roasted them until they were as close to sweet potato fries as they'd ever get. They will still taste like carrots, but they are a nice sub for the fries! The kids love them, too.

Let me know if you make these wings. It's a super inexpensive dish to make, too!


  1. Sounds delicious! My father-in-law made something similar and brought us a few and I may or may not have been eating the hardened parm cheese with my fingers. Not confirming or denying here, but wow was that delish!

  2. Love.

  3. Oh girl my hubby is going to love you - this is his favorite type of wing to order at Buffalo Wild Wings so I know he'll love these one night this week! Thanks for sharing! xo
