Crispy Baked Garlic Parmesan Wings – So good, you will wish you made a second batch.
Repeat after me… Crispy Baked Garlic Parmesan Wings – Yes… crispy and baked in the same sentence. It is in fact possible to have deliciously crispy wings without frying them. These are the real deal! I love, love, love a good crispy chicken wing. Even better when it is a low carb, keto chicken wing recipe. I am an extra crispy, all flats type of wing girl! How do you like your wings? Contrary to popular belief, not all wing recipes are low carb. In fact, many of the wing recipes in restaurants are not low carb or gluten free. They are typically dredged in some sort of flour before being fried in order to make them retain their crispiness under all the sauce. I felt it was worth mentioning since a lot of people seem to view this as a free food. When you are dining out, ask your server if the wings are gluten free, and this is usually a good indicator that they are also low in carbs. Depending on the sauce of course. I mean this more in reference to classic buffalo wings. Once I figured out how to make a truly crispy chicken wing recipe, I went nuts trying other flavor combination. Check out my Low Carb Teriyaki Chicken Wings. and if you are not a fan of bone-in wings, try my Keto Boneless Buffalo Wing Recipe. Still not satisfied? No worries! I’ve got you covered! Here is a complete round up of low carb chicken wing recipes.
I am super excited to share this Crispy Baked Garlic Parmesan Wing Recipe from my new book Keto Happy Hour. It answers a question that I have been asked a million times – “What kind of alcohol can I drink on a low carb diet?” or “Is alcohol keto?” While I don’t think there is a one-sized fits all answer to this question, I wanted to provide a solution for those wanting to incorporate the occasional low carb cocktail into their low carb lifestyle.
