Lemon Pepper Wings


  • 2.5 lbs Chicken Wings
  • 2 tbsp Avocado or Olive Oil
  • 6 cloves garlic grated or minced
  • Zest of 1 lemon or 5 drops doTERRA Lemon Essential Oil
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce (do not use if Whole30)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp ghee (Whole30) or butter
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp onion powder


Pat dry the chicken wings with paper towel. Season with salt and pepper.

Combine wings and the remaining ingredients in a bowl except the ghee. Toss until well combined. Let marinate at room temperature for at least 30 minutes, or cover and marinate in the fridge all day. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Place a wire rack over the foil lined baking sheet. Spray wire rack with cooking spray or grease with some olive oil. Place the marinated chicken wings on top of the wire rack in a single layer, reserving the remaining marinade in the bowl for later.

Place wings in oven and bake for 35 minutes, or until skin is a bit crisp and browned

Meanwhile, when your wings are about 10 minutes from being ready, heat the remaining marinade in a small skillet or saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat down to low and add 1 tbsp of ghee, whisking occasionally and making sure it does not burn, until the wings are done.

When wings are done, remove with a spatula and place into a bowl. Pour the marinade mixture over the top and toss to combine.

Serve as is or with my secret sauce.
