Pre-heat oven to 250°F.
In a small bowl, mix together baking powder, grated parmesan cheese, smoked paprika, salt, and black pepper, .
Pat dry defrosted drumettes and/or winglets. Toss them with the baking powder mixture. Use your fingers to rub the spices onto the meat and spread them evenly all over.
Grease baking rack with vegetable oil (use the spray if you have it) and stack baking rack on top of a baking sheet. Place drumettes or winglets on baking rack, do not overlap.
Bake in the oven for 30 minutes.
Bump the temperature up to 425°F, and bake for 25 minutes.
Flip drumettes and/or winglets over and bake for another 20-25 minutes.
While waiting for drumettes and/or winglets to cook, mince garlic. Melt butter in a small pot on the stove, then add minced garlic to pot. Remove from heat once you can smell the garlic. Do not brown or burn garlic.
Remove drumettes and/or winglets from oven when done, then remove them from baking rack promptly (so it doesn't stick to baking rack).
Drizzle garlic butter sauce all over wings.
Optional: Garnish with parsley and/or more parmesan cheese. Fyi - this is more for making it look pretty than for flavor!
Serve and enjoy!
