❤️ Garlic Parmesan Wings Air Fryer
"I LOVE the combination of garlic and parmesan on these wings! The secret to the best flavor is to pull the wings out of the air fryer about 5 minutes before they are done and toss them with fresh garlic and grated parmesan. From there you place them back in the air fryer and the coating gets perfectly cooked!" -Kori 🙂
Garlic parmesan chicken wings are made with only 7 ingredients and cooked in less than 20 minutes in your air fryer - you'll be enjoying these wings in no time!
Cooking is as simple as coating the wings with olive salt and pepper then air fryer until they're almost done. From there, the wings are coating in parmesan cheese and garlic and cook for a few more minutes. So tasty!
I'm always surprised how much flavor these have with so few ingredients. Garlic and parmesan are classic pairings for many recipes, but they work so well on these wings.
I love the texture of the crispy outside with delicious bits of parmesan and garlic. Oh yum.

Ingredients and Tools
Here's what you'll need to make this Garlic Parmesan Wings Air Fryer Recipe:
- Chicken Wings - I used wingettes in this recipe but whole chicken wings can be used as well. See the recipe card below for instructions.
- Olive Oil or Coconut Oil - use either olive oil or coconut oil but using coconut oil will give these wings a tropical taste!
- Kosher Salt or Sea Salt
- Fresh Ground Pepper - freshly grated ground pepper tastes best
- Parmesan Cheese - I used the finely grated kind, it sticks to the chicken better while air fryer. If you want you can fresh grate a little parmesan over the wings after they are cooked.
- Minced Garlic
- Optional - fresh parsley, basil, or chives for garnish would be delicious and pretty but this is totally optional.
- Air Fryer - Any air fryer will do. I've been using my Ninja Foodi for air frying, slow cooking, AND pressure cooking.
- Measuring Cups
- Measuring spoons
- Garlic press
- Mixing spoon
- Mixing Bowl
Here are some different ways you can make substitutions or customize this air fryer garlic parmesan wings recipe:
- Substitute different seasonings. I recently made this recipe but added dried Italian seasoning. It was quite tasty! You could also substitute lemon pepper seasoning (that has salt) in place of the salt and pepper. Maybe even a simple chicken rub, cajun seasoning, or other.
- Serve with a sprinkle of fresh parsley, basil, or chives.
- Garnish with additional parmesan cheese if desired.
- Drizzle with a little lemon juice.
Here's how to make garlic parmesan wings in air fryer:
Coat the Chicken
Preheat the air fryer to 375 degrees F for 5 minutes.
Toss chicken wings with oil, salt, pepper, and garlic powder in a large mixing bowl.
If you want, you can do this step the day before. Place them in an airtight container or plastic bag until you're ready to cook the next day.
Air Fry the Wings
Air fry for 15 minutes, giving them a toss about halfway.
Remember to watch your wings the first time you make these. There is a variance in cooking temperatures and times between air fryers! I have three models, and they all cook slightly differently.
Toss with Garlic and Parmesan
Remove from basket and place in a bowl. Toss with minced garlic and parmesan cheese.
Finish Air Frying
Place back into the air fryer basket and cook for an additional 5 minutes or until done.
Serve on a platter and garnish with additional parmesan and fresh parsley if you like.
- Each air fryer is a little different so adjust your cooking times as needed. There is a variance in cooking temperatures and times between air fryers! I have three models and they all cook a little different.
- Typically you don't want to overlap your pieces, but I found that as long as I toss the chicken about halfway, they come out perfect every time.
- As a general rule of thumb, chicken is done when the juices run clear and are no longer pink. If you are unsure or want to be really accurate, use an instant-read thermometer to check. The USDA recommends cooking chicken to 165-degrees F.

Note: each air fryer is a little different so adjust your cooking times as needed.
