Lemon Garlic Chicken Wings

I love lemon and garlic with chicken. The flavours of this dish are perfect together.

This is simply a great chicken wing recipe. They can served hot, warmed or cold, perfect for entertaining or picnics.

1 kilo chicken wings
½ cup fresh lemon juice
1 lemon, sliced
1 tb grated lemon zest
1 tb freshly ground black pepper
2 tsp salt
1 tbls light brown sugar
Several fresh rosemary sprigs (or 1 tsp dried rosemary)
¼ cup olive oil
3 crushed cloves garlic plus
6 whole cloves garlic

Wash the wings well and pat dry. Place everything in a large zip lock bag or glass bowl and combine well. Refrigerate, covered for 1-2 hours turning a few times. I left mine overnight.

Remove wings from the marinade and place in a single layer in a large baking tray with sides, or straight onto a BBQ plate. (Works well in the electric frypan, too).

If doing in the oven, I suggest a throw-away foil pan!
Place in a 180  degree oven and bake for 1 hour, turning once half way through, until golden brown or on BBQ turning as required.  Add sliced lemon several minutes before serving.

Serve with greek yoghurt as a dipping sauce.

  1. When I went to your FB page I discovered you and Rhu Barb are one and the same. Chicken wings are my favourite part of roast chicken and yet I never think to cook them like this. Although I often did when the boys were younger for an after school snack. Yours do look delicious.

    1. Hi barbara, – yep, I am Rhubarb! I write 2 blogs – one a whatever blog, called Rhubarb Whine, and the other, a foodie blog, called Potagers Kitchen. I didn’t want the 2 blogs to cross, they are 2 very different parts of me!

      I love chicken wings, I am bit of a finger food addict :)
