FAQs:

Can I use frozen chicken wings for this recipe?

Yes, you can use frozen chicken wings. However, you should thaw them completely and pat them dry before seasoning and cooking. This ensures even cooking and helps achieve the desired crispiness.

What is a good substitute for garlic parmesan sauce?

If you can’t find garlic parmesan sauce, you can make a homemade version using grated Parmesan cheese, minced garlic, butter, and a bit of heavy cream or mayonnaise. Mix these ingredients to your taste preference for a similar flavor profile.

How can I make the chicken wings extra crispy?

To make the chicken wings extra crispy, you can coat them lightly with baking powder before seasoning. Additionally, ensure they are spaced out well in the air fryer or on the baking tray to allow air circulation and prevent steaming.

Is it possible to grill the chicken wings instead of baking or air frying?

Yes, you can grill the chicken wings. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat, and cook the wings for about 20-25 minutes, flipping occasionally, until they are crispy and fully cooked. Then, toss them in the garlic parmesan sauce.

Can I prepare the wings in advance?

While it is best to serve the wings fresh, you can prepare them in advance by cooking and storing them in the refrigerator. When ready to serve, reheat them in the air fryer or oven until they are hot and crispy again, then toss them in the garlic parmesan sauce.
