Servings 20 wing portions
Calories 77 kcal


  • 2 lbs. wing portions wingettes, drumettes, or a combo
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice
  • 4 cloves garlic crushed
  • ¼ tsp. black pepper
  • ½ - 1 tsp. red pepper flakes
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 2 Tbsp. cornstarch tapioca or arrowroot starch
  • cup Parmesan cheese plus more for serving
  • Fresh parsley finely chopped
  • Italian or Ranch dressing


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl combine lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, both peppers, and salt. Whisk ingredients together until a slightly thick sauce forms. Add wing portions and toss to coat.

  3. Sprinkle cornstarch over wings to distribute evenly. Toss wings again to coat them completely.
  4. Lastly, add parmesan cheese incrementally to try and cover all of the wings completely.

  5. Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper and then place a wire rack on top. Layer wings in a single layer, skin side-down, being careful that none of the skin is touching. (You can also place them directly onto parchment paper, but they won't come out nearly as crispy!)

  6. Bake wings in preheated oven for 40-45 minutes, flipping halfway through.

  7. Broil wings on a high broil for 2-4 minutes.*

  8. Sprinkle wings with additional Parmesan cheese and parsley. Serve wings immediately with ranch or Italian dressing and enjoy!
