Wow! Has it really been a month since I last wrote a blog? Yes, sadly it has. I had internet connectivity problems, then all the holiday bustle and then well, I was liking being a bit lazy 😉 Since the Superbowl is coming up though, I thought I would share this recipe. My computer has been “dying” lately and this has happened before, which usually means I need a new hard drive, so I figured I’d post before I can’t!
Each year we have a chili cook-off, soup cook-off or a wing cook-off. The last party was a wing cook-off. I had never cooked wings in my life. Can you believe that? My husband is a big fan but I always looked at it like, “That’s a lot of work for a little bit of meat”, so I never was interested in them. I made 4 or 5 batches of wings and had my friends try them and tell me what one was the best in their opinion. The Parmesan Garlic won by a long shot.
They also won at my party! Even though I pass the prize to the next person. I can’t host a party and win, that’s just not right. But, I do like to compete 😀
So, let’s get started…
Baked Parmesan Garlic Chicken Wings
1 t. dried oregano
1 t. dried rosemary
1/2 t. ground cumin
1 t. sea salt (or 1/2 t. table salt)
2 1/2 lbs. chicken wings
3 T. melted butter (or extra-virgin olive oil)
2 T. minced fresh basil
2 garlic cloves, finely minced
1/4 c. freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 t. seasoning salt (like Lawry’s)
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. In a small bowl, mix together the oregano, rosemary, cumin and salt. Lay the wings on a baking sheet (sprayed with cooking spray) and season the chicken wings with this mixture on both sides.
Original recipe found here with the dipping sauce. I did not use the dipping sauce because these are so good on their own there really is no need for it but, in case you want it, it’s posted!
Have a great week y’all!
