Happy Super Bowl week everyone! Even if you’re not a football fan, I feel like just about everyone is planning on tuning into the game this Sunday. Between the Taylor Swift content and Usher playing at halftime, there’s something for everyone!

Oh, right, and of course, there’s the actual game as well. But to be honest, I’m here for Taylor, and I love a good halftime show too!

And then, there is, of course, the food! The best part of any game day. I always have so much fun with these recipes.

This year, I have some yummy dishes coming your way, but wings are an absolute must. Usually, I serve up traditional buffalo wings, but after making these garlic parmesan wings, I’m now serving both.

These are so delicious and a great option for anyone who doesn’t love the spiciness of buffalo wings!

Here are the details

Step 1: the chicken

Start with the chicken. Cubed raw chicken, breasts, or thighs, or use a mix of the two as I do. Toss the cubed chicken with a mix of seasonings: smoked paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Add flour and parmesan, then toss again.

The flour allows the chicken to get crispy in the oven. It’s a small amount, so just a very light coating, but it’s perfect. Not fully bready chicken wings, but breaded enough so that the sauce really sticks nicely to the chicken.

Bake the chicken up in a super hot oven. It takes maybe 20 minutes to cook.

Step 2: the sauce

For the sauce, you need butter, garlic, cream, parmesan, and cayenne. A very simple mix, but delicious.

Simmer this on the stove for a few minutes to bring everything together into a delicious cream sauce. Nothing fancy to it!

Step 3: coat the chicken in sauce

Pour the sauce over the baked, crispy chicken as soon as it comes out of the oven. The heat helps the sauce really adhere to the chicken.

The coating soaks up all the sauce. It’s going to leave you saying, YUM!

I always finish with extra parmesan cheese, parsley, and black pepper.

For serving, these are so yummy with home-baked french fries and extra parmesan sauce. Or serve over rice with a side of broccoli and make these wings into a dinner!

Perfect for everyone in the family!

Ingredients

Garlic Parmesan Sauce

Instructions

  • 1. Preheat the oven to 450° F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or rub with oil.
    2. On the sheet pan, toss together the chicken, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Add the flour and parmesan and toss again. Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil, tossing to coat. Arrange the chicken evenly on the baking sheet. Bake 15-20 minutes until the chicken is cooked through.
    3. Meanwhile, make the sauce. Heat the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook until it begins to brown, about 3-5 minutes. Stir in the garlic and then slowly pour in the cream. Whisk in the parmesan and cayenne. Season with salt and pepper. Simmer the sauce for 3-5 minutes, whisking until smooth. Keep warm over low heat. 
    4. Pour the parmesan sauce over the chicken and toss the chicken up in the sauce.
    5. Serve the chicken and parmesan sauce with fresh parsley. Ideally, add some home-cut fries on the side too. YUM!

    We made this twice now and it was fantastic. You have to remember to add salt- I used kosher salt to dry out the chicken. As well I added about a teaspoon of baking powder to help dry. Halfway through cooking I also pulled out the parchement paper and that helped to get that amazing crunchy texture without the chicken being over cooked. Amazing recipe, we will make again. Thanks!

    1. Hi Hayley,
      I appreciate you trying these wings, so glad they turned out well for you, thanks for sharing your tips! Xx

    1. I tried that for dinner tonight and the coconut cream was too sweet. To reduce the sweetness and coconut flavor I added tomato paste and extra cayenne, but it just didn’t work. I think I’ll stick with heavy cream and know that it will be worth the stomach discomfort!

    2. Hi Kathleen,
      Sure, that should work well for you! I hope you love this recipe, please let me know if you give it a try! xT

    AMAZING I used two pans instead of one for extra spacing for crispyness because I don’t think my pan is as big as yours and they were absolutely melt in your mouth good !! I paired them with your garlic Parmesan fries and it was heaven!! I randomly made them for Valentine’s Day because I didn’t have Super Bowl plans. Thank you so much !!

    This was absolutely delicious!! My husband really enjoyed it too. I did not have cayenne pepper so I used chili powder instead. Thank you for a great recipe!

    I was nervous to make this after reading the comments, but it sounded SO good that I had to try. I had pretty good success with this after swapping a few ingredients. I breaded my chicken in cassava flour and put it in the air fryer instead of the oven. It did come out crispy!! Of course, if you’re not frying it, it’ll never be as crispy as a restaurant but I thought it was perfect. I also used milk and arrowroot powder instead of heavy cream, and the sauce came out beautiful. Overall, I would definitely make this again!

    1. Hi Kelly,
      Wonderful!! Thanks a lot for your comment and sharing what worked well for you! So glad to hear these were enjoyed! xT

    I hate to even say this but I also could not get these crispy. I even did half in my air fryer and they just weren’t crispy at all. I did like the Parmesan sauce. I have had great luck with so many other recipes on this site, but definitely would not make this one again unless I planned on actually frying the chicken.

    1. Hi Sara,
      I appreciate you trying this recipe and sharing your feedback, sorry to hear you couldn’t get them crispy. Next time, try using a wire rack on top of your baking sheet. I hope this helps! xT

    The sauce was great, the wings however were not crispy. Just regular baked chicken, super disappointing! I halved the recipe but I don’t think that should change much 🙁

    1. Hi Molly,
      Sorry to hear your chicken didn’t crisp up. Next time, you can use a wire rack or pop them under the broiler for a second:) I hope this helps! xT

    Made this yesterday for the big game….(along with 2 other dishes fromHBH) they were so good and so easy! Will make again

      1. These were delish. I cooked the chicken on my pizza pan that has holes punched throughout to ensure crispyness. It all turned out great!

        1. Hey Molly,
          Happy Monday! Thanks a lot for giving this recipe a go and your comment! Love to hear that it turned out well:)

    Good flavors, but followed recipe exactly and wings would not crisp. Much more flour is needed for a crispy crust to form.

    1. Thanks for sharing your feedback, Abby!! You could try a wire rack on your baking sheet next time to make them crispier. I hope this helps! xT

      I made these for the Super Bowl and went into it knowing they wouldn’t look like the photo given they’re baked vs fried. Flavor was delicious and they reheated great on a salad this week. Perhaps call them “bites” vs wings?

    I have to agree with V and Jasmine. These did not turn out anything like the description. I followed the recipe exactly as written. I made these and another similar recipe from this site in order to have a healthier alternative to traditional chicken wings. They took quite a bit of work for the disappointing end result. The chicken did not crisp up at all – it was soggy and flavorless. The sauce was just ok and not enough to save the chicken. The other recipe I tried was equally disappointing. Back to regular chicken wings for the next Super Bowl.

    Made these for Super Bowl. I used boneless, skinless chicken thighs.
    The recipe was easy to follow and the flavor delicious! I preped the chicken, etc earlier in the day, so execution for game time was assemble and bake. Like some others, the chicken did not get crispy and added more time to the bake. Will make again and perhaps add a touch of either corn starch or rice flour… The sauce is off the chain. Thanks for posting the recipe.

    1. Hi Susan,
      Wonderful!! Thank you so much for trying these boneless wings and your comment! So glad they were enjoyed! xT

    This came out AMAZING! The sauce was *chef kiss*! Great alternative to frying chicken. Was done in no time at all:)

  12. I make an average of 2 HBH recipes every week and this is the first one that didn’t turn out for me and I can’t quite figure out why! Used chicken breast and the chicken did not crisp at all. Even tried broiling it a bit and that didn’t do the trick either. So proceeded with the still delicious baked chicken and then… sauce didn’t come out creamy either. It separated for some reason. I neeeeeeed to understand why! I’m going to try this one more time in a few weeks because I don’t like failing recipes but something went wrong for me.

    1. Hi Jasmine,
      Thanks so much for trying this recipe, so sorry you had some issues. Next time, try using a wire rack on top of your baking sheet. For the sauce, make sure your heavy cream and parmesan are room temp before adding to the sauce pan. I hope this helps! xT

    I followed the recipe instructions to the letter, and it came out looking absolutely nothing like your pictures. I can’t even imagine how it’s supposed to look like that with such a small amount of flour as called for in the ingredients list.
    The chicken turned out incredibly soggy no matter how long I cooked it, and the seasonings were pitiful. To anyone reading, don’t waste your money on ingredients for this recipe. It was barely even passable. Out of a 10 I would have given it a 2.

    This is far from the first time I’ve made one of your recipes and it’s turned out nothing at all like your pictures. I’m about ready to give up using your recipes. They used to be good and turn out well, but in the past few years so many of your recipes have seemed like they’re for something completely different than what you’ve photographed.

    I wholeheartedly agree with the reviewer “Shay” below. Normal people don’t have enough money to keep wasting it on ingredients for these pitiful recipes.

      That was so unnecessarily mean… what’s your deal?
      Go buy some hamburger helper you should be able to afford and figure that out 😉
      Does it feel good to be spoken to like that? Bet not
