(This recipe was updated with new images in 2022; it was first published in December 2009).

It’s unusual that I prepare the same recipe twice because I adore creating chicken wings at home in so many different ways. These wings, however, are an exception to the norm. Additionally, I sense they’ll be for you as well.

Because you’ll want these Sizzling Garlic Chicken Wings again as soon as you taste them. You’ll want to cook chicken wings precisely this way each time you purchase them.

Having pals around to watch a football game or throwing a party? There’s little doubt that these chicken wings with garlic will be served. I suggest serving them with these Marinated Mozzarella Balls!

 Why You’ll Love This Recipe

If you love garlic and super easy and flavorful dinners, these sizzling garlic chicken wings are for you! They’re everything a chicken wing should be: amazingly crispy and packed with flavor.

I almost always bake chicken wings instead of frying them, but these pan-fried ones are so delicious and so easy that I’ve been using this method way more often lately. Pan-frying is much easier than deep frying and, in my opinion, just as tasty! (if you prefer using your air fryer, check out these Air Fryer Chicken Wings!)

These wings make a great party appetizer, but they’re also perfect for a last-minute dinner. Serve with a side veggie or two and enjoy!

What are Party Wings?

When you’re at the grocery store, you may notice you have the option of buying either chicken wings or “party wings.” If you see party wings, I highly recommend buying them for this recipe!

When chicken wings are labeled as so, it means the wings are already cut into drumettes and wingettes (with the tips discarded), which is how you want them for this recipe.

You can buy whole chicken wings and cut them yourself (this tutorial may be helpful for you!), but this is a kitchen task I really abhor and buying the wings already cut makes life so much easier!

How Many Wings Per Serving?

It’s tough to determine serving size for chicken wings since so much depends on what you’re eating with them, but in general, you’ll want close to a pound per person if you’re eating them as a meal. I say this recipe serves 2-3 people as an entree, so if you’re cooking for more, I highly recommend doubling or tripling the recipe.

Luckily, this is the kind of recipe that’s very easy to double… You may just need to pan-fry the wings in batches or have two skillets going at once.

This chicken is simply so wonderful in every way. Despite having few ingredients, it has a ton of taste.

I suggest serving these wings as an entree along with a couple of vegetable sides, such as asparagus and broccoli. They also pair very nicely with rice pilaf or a similar dish!

If you’re dining with someone, I guarantee you won’t have any issues finishing two pounds of these chicken wings in one sitting, but I have to admit, these wings taste even better the next day.

The richness of the paprika and garlic truly comes through, making them taste even better!

 How to Make in Advance

If you’re serving these garlic chicken wings at a party, you may want to make them in advance, so you’re not standing over the stove during the party. And you definitely can!

Simply cook them as stated and keep in an airtight container in your fridge. When you’re ready to re-heat, remove wings from fridge and let come to room temperature for about 15 minutes.

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly spray a metal baking rack with cooking spray and place over a baking sheet (you may want to put a sheet of parchment paper or foil on baking sheet).

Place wings on the rack. You can spritz them with a little bit of water if you want to help prevent them from drying out. And put in oven for 5 minutes. Flip wings and cook for an additional 5 minutes.

And enjoy!! I love being able to make party recipes ahead of time to keep stress down on the day of.
