Lemon garlic chicken wings are light and fresh using ingredients you already have in your kitchen! These wings are made with freshly squeezed lemons, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper. They’re baked in the oven for a simple yet flavorful dish that can be paired with a side salad or quinoa.
Lemon Garlic Chicken Wings
Freshly squeezed lemon adds the perfect tanginess to these baked chicken wings. No need for fancy ingredients, just a few things you probably already have in your kitchen.
You can serve these chicken wings with raw or roasted vegetables, or a quick salad. These would also taste great dipped in ranch dressing.
P.S. This is my new NordicWare baking sheet (see it below) and I’m in love! It’s really BIG – the perfect size for making sheet pan dinners.
I’m a huge NordicWare fan – I collect their seasonal baking pans. They’re so beautiful and the quality is excellent.
Ingredients For Lemon Garlic Chicken Wings
- Chicken Wings – I used about 2 lbs of chicken wings. Feel free to make more or less as long as they cook in a single layer on the baking sheet.
- Spice Mix – You’ll add this mix to the chicken before baking: avocado oil (or other cooking oil), garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper.
- Lemon Slices – These are added halfway through in the baking process. They’re optional but make a beautiful presentation.
- Lemon Dressing – This chicken wings are tossed in lemon juice, garlic powder, salt and pepper after they’re baked.
How To Make Lemon Garlic Chicken Wings
- Season – Add the raw chicken wings to a large bowl. Mix together avocado oil, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper. Pour this over top of the wings and toss together until evenly coated.
- Bake – Lay in a single file on the baking sheet and bake at 425°F for 45-50 minutes, flipping them half way through.
- Drizzle Dressing – Make the dressing using lemon juice, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Drizzle overtop of baked chicken and toss together. Serve and enjoy!
