  • 2 lbs  Maple Lodge Farm ® chicken wings (roughly 25 wings)

  • lemon zest and black pepper as garnish

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400℉.
  • If using frozen wings, make sure they are thawed and pat dry with a paper towel. 
  • In a large bowl, toss the wings with half the lemon juice, half the lemon zest, salt and pepper.
  • Prepare a wire rack placed on top of a baking tray and spray with avocado or coconut oil to prevent sticking. 
  • Arrange the chicken wings side by side on the wire rack, making sure not to overcrowd them.

  • Remove and toss with remaining lemon juice and lemon zest.
  • Garnish with lemon zest and fresh cracked black pepper.

Notes

Tips for making extra crispy wings:
1. Thaw the night before in the fridge so there’s no extra moisture from being frozen.
2. Pat dry so skin crisps up and oil and seasoning sticks
3. Bake on a wire rack set over top of the baking tray so the air flows around the wings and gets everything super crispy. 
4. Don’t overcrowd otherwise you won’t get an even crisp and some of the pieces will be soggy.
