Crispy Garlic Parmesan Wings

An ideal wing always consists of the following:

1. Bones, whoever says they like boneless wings is fooling themselves.

2. Even spice or sauce throughout, for consistency. 

3. A cooling agent, i.e. blue cheese, ranch, etc., because water won't cut it.

What happens, however, when you break all the rules, shift the spice barrior, and kick the flavor up about three notches? Cue recipe!

Ingredients

  • 12  bone-in chicken wings, split
  • 3  tablespoons  extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2  tablespoons  unsalted butter, melted
  • cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1/4  cup  flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
  • 1/2  cup  Parmesan, grated
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1  cup  panko breadcrumbs

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Grease the bottom of a daking dish with 1 tablespoon of the oil and place the wings in it.  

In a small bowl, mix the melted butter, the remaining olive oil, garlic, parsley, Parmesan, salt, and pepper. Baste the wings with the mixture, cover the wings with the breadcrumbs and place in the oven for about 35-45 minutes or until cooked through. If the inside cooks quicker and you want a crunchier top, place under the broiler on low for 3 minutes. Enjoy!

Garlic Cooking Tip

Unlike other highly regarded cuisines, Italian cooking is usually simple to make with many dishes having only 4 to 8 ingredients. Italian cooks rely chiefly on the quality of the ingredients rather than on elaborate preparation.
