  • 1 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 cup kosher salt
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 1 tbsp dried thyme
  • 1 tbsp dried oregano
  • 1 tbsp dried rosemary
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tbsp cumin
  • 1/2 tbsp onion powder
Baking the Wings
  • 1 cup parmesan grated
  • 10 cloves garlic
  • 1 medium lemon (juice only)
  • 4 tbsp olive oil extra virgin
  • 3 tbsp breadcrumbs plain
  • 2 tsp dried basil
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp white sugar
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper


Boiling the Wings
  1. Add water to a large pot, leaving at least 4-5 inches of room from the water to the top of the pot.
  2. To the water add balsamic vinegar, bay leaves, salt, dried thyme, oregano, rosemary, garlic powder, cumin and onion powder. Bring this to a simmer.
  3. Using a large slotted spoon, add chicken wing pieces to simmering water a few at a time. Once all wings are added, stir gently for a few seconds. Once water begins to boil, reduce heat to a simmer.
  4. Allow wings to simmer for about 15 minutes. Once done, using a large slotted spoon, remove wings and place on a wire rack. Allow wings to rest for 15-20 minutes, giving them a chance to dry.
Baking the Wings
  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.
  2. In a food processor combine garlic cloves, olive oil, salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper, basil, lemon juice and sugar. Turn food processor on to combine all ingredients into a thin paste.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, add garlic paste and breadcrumbs, stirring together to combine.
  4. Add wings to mixing bowl. Using a large spoon, toss wings until evenly coated with garlic paste. Add 1/2 cup of parmesan to and toss wings for a few more seconds.
  5. On a greased baking sheet, spread wings out, leaving room between each wing. Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup parmesan over wings, coating evenly.
  6. Bake wings for 15-20 minutes, or until they are golden brown and crispy.
