Chicken Parmesan Wings are a bite-sized version of the classic Italian dish.  The wings are breaded and baked and are perfectly juicy and tender.  They are then topped with marinara sauce and mozzarella cheese before serving.  They make a great appetizer or finger food to serve at a party.  For us, they make a wonderful dinner for 2.  I tend to serve the wings with additional marinara sauce on the side for dipping but a side of spaghetti noodles or some mashed potatoes would also pair well!

Start by preheating the oven to 425 degrees F and lining a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Add the chicken wings to a large bowl (pat dry first if they are wet).  Add the flour and toss to evenly coat.  Then, season with salt.  I like to use about ½-1 Tsp of salt.  I don’t want the wings to be too salty and often the marinara and mozzarella will add enough flavor that you won’t need additional salt.

Whisk the eggs in a shallow dish or bowl.

Combine the parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs in a shallow dish or small bowl.

Dip each chicken wing into the egg mixture and then dredge it (coat it) in the parmesan/breadcrumb mixture.  Make sure to evenly coat each wing and place on the baking sheet.  Repeat until all wings are coated.

This is best done assembly line style.  Lay out your dishes – first is the chicken wing bowl, next is the egg mixture, and finally the breadcrumb mixture.  The sheet pan will sit at the very end for you to place the chicken wings as they are assembled.

Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through.

Remove the wings from the oven.  Top each wing with a small spoonful of marinara sauce.  Then sprinkle a small amount of shredded mozzarella cheese on top of each wing (on top of the sauce).  Place back in the oven for 2-3 minutes or until the cheese has melted.  Alternately, you could place the wings under the broiler for 30-60 seconds to melt the cheese and get a nice golden-brown top.

Remove the wings from the oven and transfer to a serving platter or individual plates.  Serve warm with additional marinara sauce on the side for dipping.  You can also add some fresh chopped parsley as a garnish.  Enjoy!

What do you think?  Do these taste as good as traditional Chicken Parmesan?  Or will these be a fun substitute when you are looking to try something new?

Happy Cooking!
