Crispy Chicken Wings Appetizer Recipe

I'm a beginner at cooking, so if I can make these chicken wings, anybody can! The recipe came from a co-worker at the hospital where I am a nurse's aide. I make it for Christmas, picnics, softball parties…you name it! —Nancy Lesky, La Crosse, Wisconsin
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 50 min. YIELD:10 servings


  • 2 pounds chicken wings
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  • 1. Cut chicken wings into three sections; discard wing tip sections.
  • 2. In a small shallow bowl, combine butter and garlic powder. In another bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Dip chicken into butter mixture, then into crumb mixture.
  • 3. Place on greased baking sheet; bake at 350° for 50-60 minutes or until chicken juices run clear. Yield: 20 appetizers.
Editor's Note: Uncooked chicken wing sections (wingettes) may be substituted for whole chicken wings.

"I made these and I also made the breaded wings I found on Taste of home. We skinned the wings since we don't like eating all of that fat. I think if I make these again I would bake them at 425 for about 30 minutes instead and I would NOT grease the pan. The butter added enough grease to the baking sheet. The breaded ones are baked at 425 and were crispy."

"These were just OK. As one reviewer commented, maybe "crispy" chicken wings don't really exist. They were OK straight out of the oven, but I have several better recipes for chicken wings that my whole family prefers so I won't be making these again."

"Terrible! Did not get crispy. Maybe if it would have been on a rack the "juices" could have dripped thru instead of sitting in it - Soggy and bland tasting"

"I've made these several times, always for a very large crowd. I found the original recipe a little bland and added a package of ranch dressing mix to the breadcrumbs and a little cayenne to the melted butter along with the garlic powder. YUMMY!! They disappear in minutes. I'm making 120 for a grad party this weekend."

"Made these Christmas Day.... were Fantastic....Used Costco frozen chicken wings...I would cut the baking time down to 30 minutes and then check if crispy...The hour was too long..Great hot or cold....!!! The garlic in the butter base and the seasoned bread crumbs gave it some zip....Will make again..."

"Wonderful chicken wings! I mixed 1/2 melted butter and 1/2 hot sauce to dip the wings in and then added about 1/2 of a package of Shake n' Bake to the bread crumb mixture. Served them with a curry mayo dipping sauce - got rave reviews! Will make these again!"
