  • 2-3 lbs Chicken Wings
  • 1 Lemon, sliced
  • 1 tbsp Fresh Parsley, chopped for garnish

Lemon Herb Marinade

  • 1/3 cup Olive Oil
  • 4 Lemons, juiced
  • 6 Garlic Cloves
  • 1/3 cup Fresh Parsley, roughly chopped
  • 3 tbsp Fresh Sage, roughly chopped
  • 3 tbsp Fresh Rosemary, roughly chopped
  • 2 tbsp Fresh Thyme
  • 3 tsp Paprika
  • 3 tsp Chili Powder
  • 2 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 2 tsp Italian Seasoning (or herbs de provence)
  • 2 tsp Dried Oregano
  • 1 tsp Sea Salt, plus more to taste
  • 1 tsp Pepper, plus more to taste
  • 1/2 tsp Red Crushed Peppers, optional


  • Prepare the lemon-herb marinade using the ingredients listed.
  • In a large bowl, or oven-safe pan combined chicken and marinade. Mix well to evenly coat the chicken. If time permits allow the chicken to marinate for at least 2 hours (covered in the fridge).
  • When ready to cook the chicken, preheat the oven to 400°F. (If the chicken was marinating in the fridge, remove the chicken from the fridge to allow it to come to room temperature before cooking)
  • With chicken in an oven-safe baking dish, add sliced lemon and top with salt and pepper, about 1/2 tsp each.
  • Cover the chicken with foil and bake for 35 minutes.
  • Remove the foil covering. The chicken will have produced a lot of liquid while cooking. Carefully remove most of the liquid and bake the chicken (uncovered) for an additional 10-15 minutes to achieve a golden brown skin.
  • Garnish with Parsley and serve.
