Spicy garlic parmesan chicken wings

My husband and kids love the Garlic Parmesan wings from Wing Stop.  After about five years I gave in and tried to make something similar without deep frying them.  The first time I just seasoned them and threw them in the oven.  After that my husband asked me if I could try it with Panko to make them really crunchy.  I tried, and the wings of happiness were born.

2-3 Pounds of fresh party wings (not frozen, must be defrosted)
1 Cup panko breadcrumbs
3 Tbsp garlic powder
2 Tbsp onion granules
4 Tbsp Parmesan cheese (smaller grain the better)
Chipotle powder to your liking I use about 1 Tsp
2 Tsp dried parsley
Pinch salt
1/2 Tsp black pepper
3 Tbsp olive oil

Preheat oven to 375.  Coat wings in olive oil.  Add a third of your seasoning to wings and give them a good rub down coating the entire wings in seasoning.  Add remaining two thirds of seasoning to panko and mix.  Line a pan with foil.  Place baking cooling racks over foil (if you have them).  One at a time roll each wing in the panko and place on the baking rack.  Bake for 15 minutes.  Carefully flip each wing over once trying not to knock off all of the coating.  Bake for another 15 -20 minutes until wings reach an inner temp of 175.  Pull out and let rest 5-7 minutes.  Enjoy.

Life hack.  I sometimes sprinkle more parmesan on the wings after I flip them.  Life hack two.  Even though it goes against all of my clean eating tips, my family really prefers that parmesan cheese in the green shaker bottle near the pizza sauce.
