A secret ingredient makes these finger-licking, baked low-carb garlic butter Parmesan chicken wings stay juicy and have an extra-crispy skin without frying!

I’ve been pushing myself outside my comfort zone by preparing foods I dislike or have avoided for years. There are some foods I still don’t like, but I have discovered other foods I really enjoy now! I’m so proud of myself for challenging my preconceived notions by giving foods another chance.

Wings are one of those foods I gave a second chance, and I’m so glad I did! I never expected I would love eating meat off the bone. The meat stays juicy, the skin is crispy, and the garlic butter Parmesan sauce takes these wings over the top! While this recipe is not low calorie, it is low-carb friendly.

Photos are missing olives. Don’t forget to add them like I did!

These Italian Nachos, developed by my dad, are a copycat for the appetizer found at the Italian restaurant, Johnny Carino’s. They would make a stunning appetizer for your Super Bowl party, but they are also amazing eaten as full meal. Since, the Carino’s in Utah closed, we can still enjoy these whenever we have the craving for them.

The yummy nachos are made with homemade tortilla chips topped with:

  • melty pepper-jack cheese
  • a combination of Italian-flavored sausage and chicken
  • juicy fresh tomatoes
  • briny black olives and banana peppers
  • a spicy crunch of fresh jalapenos
  • all topped with a creamy garlicky Alfredo sauce
