Garlic-Cheese Chicken Wings Recipe

Garlic-Cheese Chicken Wings Recipe

I developed this recipe several years ago using chicken breasts, then decided to try it on wings as an appetizer - and it was a hit! If you like garlic, you're sure to enjoy these tender zesty bites. -Donna Pierce, Lady Lake, Florida
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 1 hour 20 min. + cooling YIELD:10 servings


  • 2 large whole garlic bulbs
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1/2 cup olive or vegetable oil, divided
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted
  • 1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • 1-1/2 cups seasoned bread crumbs
  • 3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3/4 cup grated Romano cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 15 whole chicken wings* (about 3 pounds)


  • 1. Remove papery outer skin from garlic (do not peel or separate cloves). Cut top off garlic bulbs. Brush with 1 tablespoon oil. Wrap each bulb in heavy-duty foil. Bake at 425° for 30-35 minutes or until softened. Cool for 10-15 minutes.
  • 2. Squeeze the softened garlic into a blender or food processor. Add butter, hot pepper sauce and remaining oil; cover and process until smooth. Pour into a shallow bowl. In another shallow bowl, combine the bread crumbs, cheeses and pepper.
  • 3. Cut chicken wings into three sections; discard wing tip section. Dip chicken wings into the garlic mixture, then coat with crumb mixture. Place on a greased rack in a 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan; drizzle with any remaining garlic mixture. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 50-55 minutes or until chicken juices run clear. Yield: 2-1/2 dozen.
Editor's Note: Uncooked chicken wing sections (wingettes) may be substituted for whole chicken wings.

"Turned out really well. My guests love it.

I suggest baking them on a baking sheet that's lined with parchment paper. That'll make them much easier to pull off and serve."
