bake the chicken wings
For crispy, oven-baked chicken wings, pat dry the wings, season and bake them at 250°F for 30 minutes on a wire rack.
increase oven temp
Bump up the oven temperature to 425°F and bake another 40-45 minutes or until the wings are golden brown and crispy.
Combine melted butter, garlic, garlic powder, parsley, lemon zest and garlic powder in a bowl. Mix to form a sauce for the wings.
Add the crispy wings to a large bowl and pour in some of the garlic sauce. Toss to coat the wings, adding more sauce as needed.
Serve the wings with extra sauce for dipping, or ranch on the side. Sprinkle extra parmesan cheese or parsley on the garlic chicken wings, if desired.
