I am so excited to be sharing these super yummy Crispy Baked Garlic Parmesan Chicken Wings with you today. These wings are baked not fried, but you cant even tell the difference. They turn out super crispy without frying them. Great as an appetizer on game day or entertaining, or serve as a main dish with a big salad.
Steaming the wings first assures that they stay moist. You can even be done the day before then all you have to do is bake them and toss them in the garlic Parmesan mixture. I recommend you double the batch because these will go super fast.

4 tablespoons of butter
