Tips & Tricks

  • Be sure to grate your own Parmesan cheese. Pre-grated cheese often contains anti-caking agents that can result in a grainy texture.
  • The sauce should be thick enough to stick to the wings but if it’s too thick, you can thin it out with a little more cream or some milk.
  • If you prefer a stronger garlic flavor, feel free to add more minced garlic. Just remember that the flavor will intensify as the sauce simmers.
  • Use fresh garlic: Instead of using garlic powder or pre-minced garlic, use fresh cloves for a stronger and more flavorful garlic taste in your wings.
  • Don’t overcook the wings: Overcooked wings can become dry and tough. Cook them until they are golden brown and crispy on the outside, but still juicy on the inside.
  • Add some heat: If you like a little kick to your wings, add some crushed red pepper flakes or cayenne pepper to your marinade or sprinkle it over the cooked wings.
