  • 2 packages chicken wings ( I use wings with all parts attached)
  • 2 lemons
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic - peeled
  • 3 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper


  • Heat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil and place wire rack on top. Set aside. In a small bowl, zest and juice one lemon
  • In a large bowl, add olive oil, lemon juice, lemon zest, 2 teaspoons salt and pepper. Using a micro plane or small grater, grate garlic cloves into olive oil. Whisk all ingredients together. Add chicken wings and toss to coat thoroughly. 
  • Coat cooking rack with cooking spray. Place chicken wings on rack. Bake in oven for 30 minutes. Turn wings and continue to cook for 15 - 20 minutes until wings are golden brown and done. ***Turn wings over one last time and broil to get extra crispy skin.
  • Zest and juice second lemon. When chicken comes out of oven, drizzle with lemon juice then sprinkle with zest and 1 teaspoon salt. Let cool then serve.
