Garlic Parmesan Wings

I need a good recipe for garlic parmesan wings. I am almost leaning towards buying a bottled sauce to try it out, but this seems like such a repulsive alternative to home cooking since it's for a casual party.
Has anyone tried bottled or homemade garlic parmesan wing sauce with good/bad results?

  1. I've never tried wings like this and was hoping maybe someone out there had a tried and true recipe for you; I usually make one with a balsamic reduction but I would love to try these as well.

    I came upon this recipe since your post went unanswered. I think I will be trying this out soon and posted the link for you since the recipe looks so good. Maybe by bumping this up someone else may have a t&t recipe for you.

      Your balsamic reduction sounds yummy - I will have to try it myself sometime.
      The TLC recipe looks promising, and I've decided to try it out along with a couple of other versions of garlic parmesan sauce to see which is best. I was resisting putting this much effort into these wings, but I guess I will have to overcome the laziness.

    2. your post made me think of an episode of Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives that featured Parmesan Garlic Wings. the place was Grovers in Amherst, NY. i couldn't find the recipe - it's not on the FN site - but here's a link to the video if you want to watch it and try to recreate them!

        I'm having a problem with that link on my laptop. I'll try it later on my son's.

          Triple D is a really interesting show, but I've not seen these wings featured before. This could be a perfect end to my search, if only the video would load for me...
          Thanks for the heads up!

          Got this to work via Hulu:
          I have actually seen this episode before, but totally overlooked the wings. Very cool recipe and I am trying it ASAP!

          1. re: goodhealthgourmet

            I saw this episode and wanted to recreate these myself! The thought makes my mouth water!

          2. Somehow I missed your post earlier and I only saw GHG's. Yes! The ones with balsamic are yummy but I must admit that I became more interested in yours, probably because I've made mine so many times already and super bowl is around the corner.

            I forget the guy's name from DDD, but I always like his taste in food in a non-gourmet sort of way.

            Saw the new link; thanks ghg!

              it's Guy Fieri..and you're welcome! :)

                Liligi, try the Hulu link I posted above. Another good recipe I've found that is very similar to the one featured on triple D is available at
                It adds in some Crystal's wing sauce, which I'm not sure I can find in my area, but I think the ratios of other ingredients seem in keeping with what the owner at Grover's used.

              2. Okay, I finally got a chance to see sit down and watch. First, I found that I'm making my burgers WAY too small haha. I think they were calling theirs "bruisers". Anyway they had me until...they brought out the cheeseburger soup, and I really think he was polite :)

                The wings look good but I am done with buffalo sauce (for now), and balsamic, so that leaves me with the recipe from TLC that I'm looking forward to trying. Kimberly, the wings in your recipe probably get so much flavor from a grill, but I must use an oven. I have a couple of packages in the freezer, I'll be trying them out soon :)

                  lilgi you may be done with balsamic wings, but that sounds really tasty to me. Would you mind posting your recipe? Thanks!

                    1. re: lilgi

                      LOL! Island mentioned wanting your balsamic recipe in another thread after i linked to this one, and i posted the same one from Epi because it's the recipe i use...with a few modifications :)

                      1. re: goodhealthgourmet

                        We love this recipe!

                        I usually marinate these overnight in lots of garlic and other condiments, enhancing the Balsamic and you're enhancing the soy :)

                        1. re: lilgi

                          Goodhealth that is funny; I just saw you posted the same recipe as lilgi's on the other thread. Thank you both. Sounds like a winner. So many options.

                2. I made these today, and in the spirit of Superbowl, I doubled up on the spices. Wow! my boys were in heaven so it goes on my menu.

                  Just my notes: I increased the oven temperature (easily could have been at 475) and cooked them for a good 35 to 40 minutes. I tossed the wings in olive oil before baking which isn't indicated on the recipe, and I used fresh Rosemary. To the cheese-garlic finishing sauce I added 2 tablespoons butter. The fresh basil really makes this sauce.

                  I'm happy to say goodbye to buffalo sauce for a while.

                    glad to hear they were a hit, but which recipe did you use...?

                    1. re: goodhealthgourmet

                      The one from Pizza D'Amore that I linked above (TLC); the other ones use Buffalo sauce :)

                      1. re: lilgi

                        ah, i didn't see that one before now! i looked at Kimberly's link to the grilled wings, and between your comments about buffalo sauce and changing the *oven* temperature i was really puzzled :)

                        1. re: goodhealthgourmet

                          yeah, I was curious about making them too, so when I found that recipe I bumped the thread. I think next time I make them I'll take a photo; they looked just like the picture!
