Garlic Parmesan Wings

I love chicken wings. Well, I love my wings. I rarely order wings out because I like my wings really crispy. Whether breaded or not, it seems like whenever I order wings at a restaurant they aren't crispy. While I'm happy with my method and like my spicy wings, I do love the flavor of garlic Parmesan wings served at most wing places. I made a batch of spicy wings this week and saved some wings to try to duplicate the garlic Parmesan sauce. I'm happy to announce that I hit a bull's-eye with my first try.

Shopping list
2 dozen wing pieces
Oil for frying
2 sticks butter
5 garlic cloves
Grated Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Fry wings at 375 degrees for approximately 5 minutes.
I used my fryer but you can also fry in deep pot on stove top, don't crowd the pot
Place wings on foil lined baking sheet after frying.
Bake wings at 425 degrees for 30 minutes.
While wings are baking, peel and press garlic into sauce pan
      -If you don't have a garlic press, you can finely mince the garlic.
Add butter and red pepper flakes to sauce pan and heat on low for 15 minutes.
Toss hot wings in garlic butter.
Place coated wings on paper plate and dust with Parmesan cheese on all sides.
I dusted six wings at a time.
Enjoy with ice cold beer and make plenty to share.
