What you need for garlic parmesan chicken wings

  • 2 pounds of chicken wings
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)

How to make air fryer garlic parmesan chicken wings

Start by patting your chicken wings dry with a paper towel. Dry wings = crispy wings. Nobody wants soggy chicken, right?

In a bowl, combine Parmesan cheese, minced garlic, paprika, oregano, onion powder, salt, and black pepper. This flavorful blend is what will elevate your wings to a whole new level.

Drizzle the wings with olive oil and toss them in the Parmesan-garlic mix until each piece is generously coated. Get those flavors mingling and making friends!

Pop your air fryer on and preheat it to 400°F (200°C). While it’s heating up, marvel at the fact that you’re about to make wings without the mess of deep frying.

Once your air fryer is nice and toasty, arrange the wings in a single layer in the basket. Cook them for about 25-30 minutes, flipping halfway through. You’ll know they’re done when they’re golden brown and irresistibly crispy.

Sprinkle some fresh parsley over your golden wings for a burst of color and freshness. Serve them up hot and watch them disappear faster than you can say “Garlic Parmesan Heaven!”

b Whether you’re a ranch fanatic or a blue cheese believer, have your favorite dip on standby. These wings are just waiting to take a flavorful dive!
