  • 2 1/2 to 3 pounds (1.2 kg to 1.4 kg) chicken wings, made up of drumettes and flats (about 24 individual separated chicken wing pieces)
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups (366 ml) Basil Pesto, divided
  • 1/4 cup (20 g) long shred Parmesan cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F/200°C. Line a large rimmed sheet pan with aluminum foil, then coat foil with nonstick spray.
  2. Place wings in a bowl and season lightly with salt and generously with pepper. Add about three quarters of pesto (you can do this by eye) and toss well to coat. Place the pesto-coated wings on the prepared pan and roast for about 35 to 45 minutes or until the wings are just cooked through and register 165°F/74°C with an instant read thermometer.

  3. Remove pan from oven and brush the remaining pesto over the wings. Sprinkle with cheese and serve immediately.
