  1. Mmmm, I've baked wings before, and it really is so much easier (and healthier) than deep-frying. I love the sauce you brush on, parmesan and garlic... sounds like a great combo!

  2. Claudia, I'm going to wallop all those wings all by myself! haha... They look great. Thanks for sharing & hope you're going to have a great weekend.
    Cheers, Kristy

  6. I love wings. Period. Love the herbs and flavors.

  7. What a great guest post from your son, with all the yummy sauces!
    The baked chicken wings are my favorite. They are so crisp, yet tender, and delicious!

    I make my chicken wings the way you do, and just love to make the Buffalo hot sauce to pour over, and have extra for dipping.
    I'm not very adventurous with all the other sauces, except the Teriyaki sauce, which is oh, so good on other meats, and veggies!

    Claudia, your photos are really looking beautiful!

  8. I'll be doing this one of these Sundays - such a fun treat for a frigid afternoon. Oh I love garlic, cheese and herbs on a chicken wing!

  9. I've always had difficulty getting the wings to turn out crispy. I've never turned them more than once (half-way) before, tho. I'm guessing it's more oven time (since you're constantly releasing heat opening the oven), but you're clearly getting the desired results. They look perfect in the photos!

    Thanks for sharing your method!

  10. Parsley in the first picture looks nice. when you bake it is more healthy than fried ones, nowadays i am trying to do that. This baked Italian chicken wings looks delicious.

  11. These sound amazing. I love wings. Can't wait to try this recipe.

  12. I love that sauce, and my family would just go nuts for these wings :)

  13. These are packed with flavor Claudia! Succulent and delicious!

  14. How smart to bake instead of frying! Yum!

  15. Always prefer baking to frying! Excellent for this time of year with all the football going on :) Thanks for sharing this tasty and easy recipe, Claudia.

  16. Mmmm, Claudia! Garlic laden chicken wings! I'd eat the whole batch in an Italian second! I can just smell the aroma of your kitchen in my mind when you baked these!

  17. Thank you for sharing this recipe. Love the sauce, it's so delicious! How can you get the wings nice & crispy? I couldn't seem to perfect that aspect. Thanks! :)

  18. Oh Claudia!!! These look so awesome-crispy and golden! Chicken wings are a serious weakness of mine. They can knock me off my diet with just one whiff or glance. Yours look wonderful, so I'm going to send the link to my Mom. She loves them too...
    p.s. Sorry for being away for so long. I went to Key West-it's so wonderful there. Have you been? It makes my part of Florida look like, well, I won't say (smile)!

  19. Wow , these look fantastic. Annette loves wings and I hate to make them as they are usually so unhealthy.
