Garlic Parmesan Chicken Wings ~ Lifeofjoy.me

Garlic Parmesan Wings

Quick to prep, easy, and delicious slow-cooked chicken wings.

I had been watching some keto recipes on youtube, not too long ago where a couple of the vloggers talked about this easy recipe for chicken wings and said they were delicious. I’m not much of a wing fan but easy and delicious sounded good to me. So I bought a bag of wings to give it a try.

A four pound bag of chicken wings were about $8.99 at our local Aldi. Since I hadn’t bought wings before, I didn’t think that was a very good price until I checked them at another store or two. I decided it was an okay price after all. ;)

Michael, Tiffany, and I can eat a four pound bag easily. When Sean is eating them with us for a dinner, I make two bags but have some leftover for another time. Of course, if we had anything else with them them, one bag would probably be enough but I didn’t feel like making a salad and the kids don’t generally feel like eating a salad. :D

I like to thaw the wings first but you can just cook them a bit longer if you are cooking from frozen.

Begin by covering a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil or I guess parchment paper would work if you are opposed to foil.

Spread the wings out in a single layer on the sheet. Place a thin slice of cold butter on each wing. Then sprinkle with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder.Garlic Parmesan Wings ~ Lifeofjoy.meThis was a picture from the first time I made them seasoned this way and I used some jarred minced garlic, which got a bit dark having been roasted for so long. So the next time I made them I just sprinkled them with a little garlic powder and onion powder, which tasted just as good.

Put them in the oven on 250º. Yes that is right, 250º. Slow cook them for about 2 hours. Then crank up the heat to 350º-400º depending on how impatient you are to eat. This takes around 20 minutes or so. You want them to be browned and for a lot of the liquid in the pan to be evaporated.

Garlic Parmesan Wings ~ Lifeofjoy.meI used less butter on future pans because there was so much left in the pan when they were finished; so my thin slices of butter got even thinner. ;)

Sprinkle them with Parmesan cheese before eating. I think the next time I make them, I make sprinkle them as soon as I remove them from the oven or even pop it back in for a minute or two to melt that lovely cheese.

I hope you enjoy these too. I’ll be sharing another wing recipe in the next few weeks that is even easier. ;)

Sausage Balls ~ Lifeofjoy.me

Sausage Balls

An easy appetizer with a few simple ingredients. It’s gluten-free and keto.


I remember having sausage balls at parties. I only made them once or twice quite a few years ago and that was with Bisquick.  I recently came across this recipe over on KetoSizeMe for sausage balls that are gluten-free and legal for keto and I realized what a perfect snack these are.

You simply combine all the ingredients and drop on a cookie sheet and bake at 350º for 16-20 minutes.

Put them in the oven on 350º for 16-20 minutes.
