- 1/2 cup butter, melted
- 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- Salt and pepper
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and line a sheet pan with aluminum foil.
To set up your station, have one bowl containing the melted butter beside another bowl containing a mixture of the cheese and seasonings.
Dip each wing first in the butter, then roll it around in the cheese and spice mixture, coating evenly.
Place the coated wing into the pan, leaving space around it.
If any butter or cheese remain at the end, pour or sprinkle it over the wings in the prepared pan.
Bake for one hour, flipping the wings over halfway through.
If desired, sprinkle with chopped fresh parsley to serve.
