Why You’ll Love Alfredo Chicken Wings

These Alfredo Chicken Wings recipe is a delicious way to take chicken to the next level. My Alfredo sauce recipe is a great base sauce that you can use for so many meal ideas: over 🍝 pasta, of course, but also over baked chicken breast or even over steamed 🥦 broccoli or cauliflower. The sauce is oh-so-creamy with a delicious, deep flavor thanks to good quality Parmesan cheese and oven-roasted garlic 🧄. Paired with crispy and juicy chicken wings…perfection!

How to Prepare Alfredo Chicken Wings

🌡️Start by preheating your oven to 400F (200C).

🧄 Next, take a whole head of garlic and cut off the top so that the garlic bulbs are exposed. Then, sprinkle it with a pinch of salt and pepper and a drop of olive oil.

🔥 Now, wrap it up in foil and roast it in the oven at 400F (200C) for 35 to 40 minutes or until caramelized and soft.

🥣 Let it cool, squeeze the bulbs out of the shell into a bowl and then give it a mash or a stir. Set it aside.

🍗 Now, add the chicken wings to a big bowl and season with salt pepper and add the avocado oil. With clean hands, massage them really well.

🌀 Next, add the chicken wings to the air-fryer basket making sure you don’t overlap them so the air can circulate all around.

⏲️ Air fry at 380F (190C) for 25 minutes tossing them halfway through.

🧈 Meanwhile, in a small saucepan set to medium-low heat, add the butter and stir in the roasted garlic. Add a pinch of chili flakes if you’d like.

🥛 Next, add the heavy cream and let it come to a boil. Then add in the freshly grated Parmesan cheese.

🌿 Once it has thickened, take the sauce off the heat. Now, top the wings with the Alfredo sauce, sprinkle with parsley for garnish and enjoy!

Nonna’s Tip

If you don’t have an air fryer you can bake these Alfredo Chicken Wings at 425F (220C) on a baking sheet. I like to place the wings on top of a wired rack so that the air circulates around it. Bake until crispy or fully cooked through. This should take approximately 45 minutes.

  1. You can use this creamy Alfredo sauce over grilled or baked chicken breast instead of wings.
  2. Go vegetarian and serve the delicious sauce over steamed 🥦 broccoli or cauliflower.
  3. To make a vegan Alfredo sauce use cashew cream. 👩‍🍳 I would also use nutritional yeast instead of Parmesan cheese in that case as well.

Common Questions

Can I make this recipe vegetarian?

Yes, I love creamy Alfredo sauce over steamed or even roasted broccoli or cauliflower.

Can I make THese Alfredo Chicken Wings in the oven?

If you don’t have an air fryer you can bake the wings at 425F (220C) on a baking sheet. I like to place the wings on top of a wire rack so that the air circulates around it. Bake for about 45 minutes until crispy and fully cooked. If you don’t have a wire rack, simply cook on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet, making sure to flip halfway through. They may not be as crispy but still delish!  

Which air fryer do you use?

I love this Air Fryer! If you’re using a different brand, I recommend checking their cooking time and temperature recommendation for chicken as appliances may vary.

How do I make a vegan alfredo sauce?

You can make a creamy vegan alfredo sauce using cashew cream! I would also use nutritional yeast instead of Parmesan cheese in that case as well.

I am more commonly known as “The Modern Nonna” on social media where I create easy home cooked meals with a modern twist. I was born and raised in Sofia, Bulgaria and learned how to cook at the best culinary school in the world – my grandma’s kitchen. I lived in Greece on the Island of Crete with my parents for a while and then moved to Toronto, Canada when I was in grade 5. I started to really cook and experiment with food 11 years ago when I was 21 years old. Everything I currently know is a reflection of some part of my life…
