How to Make Keto Chicken Wings

Get started by coating wings in a flavorful mixture of Parmesan, parsley, salt, and pepper. Bake until golden and crispy, then serve warm!

Ingredients You Need

Before you embark on making keto wings, ensure you have these essentials on hand:

  • Chicken Wings: The star of the show, opt for high-quality wings for the best flavor. I like supporting farmers and buying chicken wings directly from the producer as much as possible.
  • Parmesan Cheese: Choose freshly grated Parmesan for maximum flavor.
  • Parsley: Fresh. But you can substitute with dried parsley for a burst of herbaceous goodness.
  • Salt and Ground Black Pepper: These staples enhance the overall seasoning.
  • Butter: Melted butter serves as the foundation for the delightful crust.

Carnivore Chicken WIng Variation

What to make this a strict carnivore recipe? Omit the parsley and black pepper, then follow the recipe as usual.

Pretty easy isn’t it? Follow the recipe as usual, without the plant-based ingredients.

Carnivore meal prep is one of the easiest and most straightforward ways to cook food. Wouldn’t you know, simple ingredients are best with simple cooking techniques.

Step-By-Step Instructions

Creating these keto carnivore chicken wings is a breeze.

Follow these simple directions, and you can’t go wrong!

  1. Preheat the Oven: Set it to 350°F (180°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper for easy cleanup.

  4. Dip and Roll: Dip each wing in melted butter, then roll in the cheese and herb mixture. Arrange the coated wings on the prepared baking sheet.

Expert Tips

  • Mix and match herbs. Use what you have on hand. This recipe is very forgiving!
  • Make DIY blends like Homemade Ranch Seasoning and rub over the wings generously instead of plain parsley.
  • Try different mineral-rich salts. There are so many options, and each brings its own unique flavor!
  • Serve with napkins. The crispy, oily skin is delicious, but you may need something to wipe your hands on after.
  • Feeding a crowd? Double the recipe!
  • There is an average of 4 wings per pound. Each serving has two wings. If your wings are extra-large or teeny-tiny, adjust macros accordingly.

    I doubled the batch on this and I’m happy I did! They were just as delicious the next day as my snack as they were the night of. Perfect to bump up my protein.

    I made these in the air fryer and used pecorino (it’s my preference to parmesan) and they were outstanding! Best wings I’ve had in a while. I could’ve easily eaten a whole extra pound!

    Wings are my kid’s favorite food. He would eat them every day if he could. This was such a great idea that I decided to make them for him when he came over for dinner last night. I made a garlic butter mixture to dip the wings in, but followed the rest of the recipe as is. The were delicious! Thanks for the great recipe idea.

    • I don’t see why not but I don’t have an air fryer myself so can’t speak to the specific process. I suggest looking up how to adapt oven baked recipes to the air fryer to get an idea of cooking time.

    I just made this recipe and it tasted great. The parm does get browned though at 350 for an hour and the skin isn’t crispy, but it still tasted great. I added a tsp of garlic powder and might use granulated garlic next time. Also thinking about baking the wings first at 400 to get crispy and then use rest of ingredients as a tossing sauce after baking. Since I’m carnivore, I’m loving this.
