Most people don’t think of making this recipe at home. But it is much more economical to buy a large bag of frozen wing pieces and then do the cooking yourself.
We still order wings on occasion, but very rarely. I usually buy the large bag of frozen wing pieces at Costco for around $23. The cost per wing usually comes to around $.30 per wing. Half the price of the “sale” of $.60 a piece at some restaurants!
I was always afraid to make my own wings at home for fear that I couldn’t get them crispy. To me, wings MUST be crispy! My sister-in-law showed me how she boiled the wings in a large pot for ten minutes, then broiled them to get them crispy.
That seemed to work great for us, and I have never looked back. However, now I cook them in my Instant Pot instead of on the stovetop. But I still put them under the broiler to crisp.
There have been ongoing arguments in the house about which flavor of wings is better - traditional hot wings, or garlic parmesan wings? My husband nearly always goes for the traditional, but I enjoy them both equally. (And sometimes I even prefer the garlic parmesan!)
The flavor of these Garlic Parmesan Wings is just incredible. Combine that with the crispy coating they get from the broiler, and you have a real winner of a recipe!
If you prefer traditional hot wings, check out my Easy Low Carb Hot Wings recipe!
We still like to dip our wings in Ranch Dressing, and Rohnda’s Ranch is the BEST homemade dressing I have found! My husband used to be a die-hard Hidden Valley fan, but even he said that this homemade ranch was the best.

So how would you cook it in the instant pot if the wings were not frozen?
You would only need a couple of minutes I'm thinking . . . I'm not absolutely sure since I have never done it that way.
Wow...I love wings. We do ones with Old Bay and brown butter and ones with the Bangin' Ranch sauce. I cannot WAIT to try these!
Id like to try them just cooked in the oven. I dont have an istant pot.
There are instructions in the recipe card above for cooking them without an Instant Pot. 🙂
Sarah, do you boil the wings when frozen or do you thaw them first? Sounds like you boil when frozen but I just want to be sure. Can’t wait to try these!
Hi Sheryl, I do not thaw them at all.
I made these for our Christmas Eve appetizer dinner; super delicious! Thank you!
Our favorite way to make wings! Garlic and parmesan are such an amazing flavor combo - and putting them on wings makes one of the best appetizers ever!
Do your chicken wings have the skin on them?
Gosh. What a great recipe. So easy and chicken is cooked perfectly! I followed exactly but added some jerk seasoning to the garlic Parmesan mix. Thank you for a great recipe. Alberta. Canada.
