Grilled Garlic Parmesan Chicken Wings are perfect for a Game Day and are so quick and easy to make and everyone loves them!
I am in full fall football swing and love a good cookout for game day! I can’t wait to go just to make these wings. Don’t you just love going to a tailgate or where you can’t wait to see everyone’s creations? A friend of mine goes to tailgates every weekend it seems and she is always updating me on new goodies that are popular.
Well, these wings are really only to be shared with those that you truly love. I am altogether serious on this one! I want to keep them all to myself. 😀
🍽️ Why You’ll Love This Recipe
- Great for parties, game-day tailgating, and celebrations.
- They are juicy, flavorful, and will win over any crowd.
- You can prep and cook the wings in just 30 minutes.
- Wings can be an appetizer or the main course.
Garlic and Parmesan – These are the stars of the show! You just can’t get enough garlic and the mild cheese flavor from the parmesan complements it just perfectly. I highly recommend grating your own authentic parmesan. The pre-shredded or grated varieties usually have extra additives which I prefer to keep out of my cooking.
Chicken Wings – Definitely pick up a large pack from Costco or wait until they go on sale at the grocery store. These will be grilled with olive oil and tossed with the other ingredients later.
Although we made our wings on the Big Green Egg, these work great on a gas grill as well!
Step One: Heat the grill to 350 degrees.
Step Two: Toss the wings with a little olive oil in a large bowl so they won’t stick to the grill grates. Then place all the wings on the grate and grill for about six to seven minutes and flip.
Step Three: Grill another six to seven minutes, checking to make sure the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.
Step Four: While the wings are cooking on the grill, combine the melted butter, olive oil, parmesan, garlic cloves and roasted red peppers in a bowl and combine.
Step Five: Remove the wings from the grill and toss them in the melted butter mixture. Top with parsley and green onions or chives!
💡 Expert Tips
If you bought wings that are still in three segments, this video does a great job of showing how to separate them and locate the soft spot of where to cut them with no effort!
If you don’t want to cut your own, try to locate the separated wing parts at the grocery store. I love the little drumstick pieces as they are easier to grab one and eat!
Yes! The best part of this wing recipe is that the few I had leftover reheated perfectly the next day. Winner winner! I took them out of the fridge and zapped them in the microwave for a quick leftover lunch. And they were delish! It was just as good as eating them straight off the grill.
Sure, if you don’t want to grill, you can bake them for 20-25 minutes on a wire rack on a sheet pan. You need the wire rack so that the air can flow underneath and make the skin crispy and not soggy!
If you don’t have a rack, you can make a mock one by folding aluminum foil into ridges to get the air up and under the wing. You do that by making stiff ridges of scrunched up foil every ½ inch or so.
It should look like this:

You are trying to build the ridges like the upside-down V above! It works in a pinch!
