“The trick to keeping these oven-baked chicken wings crispy, is parboiling the wings in a flavorful liquid, which helps season the chicken and produce a surface texture in the oven that your guests will swear came straight out of a deep fryer.”

Original recipe yields 4 pounds chicken wings

Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and coat foil with cooking spray.
  2. Combine water, vinegar, 1/4 cup salt, bay leaf, thyme, oregano, and rosemary in a large stockpot and bring to a boil. Add chicken wings, return to a boil, and cook for 15 minutes. Remove chicken wings with a slotted spoon to a cooling rack and allow to dry for 15 minutes.
  3. Mash garlic and a pinch of salt together in a mortar and pestle until smooth.
  4. Combine mashed garlic, olive oil, black pepper, and red pepper flakes in a large bowl. Add chicken wings and bread crumbs; toss to coat. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet and sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until browned, 20 to 25 minutes.

I made these for a wing cook-off and they were a huge hit! The flavor is fantastic. We transferred them to a crock pot and poured some garlic butter over them to give them a little more garlic flavor. DON'T DUMP OUT THE BROTH! Julie K, I saved the broth the wings were parboiled in and added some chopped leftover chicken (2 breasts, 4 thighs), 1c. chopped celery and 1c. chopped carrots to it. It was a little salty, so I added about 2 1/2 cups water (to taste), boiled it until the veggies were tender (30 min?) and ladled it over rice. Makes an awesome soup!

I made these wings for a wing cook-off on Super Bowl Sunday. I won first place (and $100). So, although they were all eaten before I got a chance to try them, they must have been great. I mixed the par-boil ingredients early that morning and used fresh herbs (just cuz I happened to have them). I liked the par-boiling so I didn't have to worry too much about the timing of the baking step.
