Place chicken wings in a large bowl and toss with salt, pepper, and paprika to coat.
Smash the two whole garlic cloves. Heat oil in a large skillet and add chicken wings and the two smashed garlic cloves. Cook chicken for 3-5 minutes per side, until golden.
Add the remaining minced garlic to skillet and continue frying for 2 minutes.
Add sherry or brandy and continue cooking until most of the liquid is absorbed and the chicken is tender, 10-15 minutes.
Serve chicken wings in a bowl topped with lots of fresh chopped parsley.
