Lemon Chicken Wings

I love my Sundays! I get to spend time with my husband and with my Jesus! After church I went to the grocery store to pick up a few items to get us through this week. I have decided that I need to learn to cut coupons! There was another girl about my age there and she had her coupons as she was going around the store. Things are so much more expensive here, I think it will help.

I LOVE wings. Wing Stop is one of my favorite "fast food" restaurants. I love all the flavors: Lemon Pepper, Garlic Parmesan, Original Hot...and their fries, yummy! I came across a recipe for Roasted Lemon Wings the other day and thought I could recreate the Lemon Pepper Wings from Wing Stop. They were yummy, but not as good as the real thing. The skin wasn't as crunchy, which is because they weren't fried, but for a healthier option they worked well! I also made my homemade baked fries, you can find these from my December 3rd blog article.

Roasted Lemon Chicken Wings
2 pds chicken wings
1 Tb vegetable oil
salt and pepper
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning (I only had oregano and thyme so I mixed those)
3 Tb lemon juice
3 Tb chicken broth
2 garlic cloves minced

Mix seasonings in a bowl.

Toss wings in the oil in a large bowl, then sprinkle in seasonings. (Sorry I didn't get a picture of this, I used my hands to mix so they were covered with oil)
Spray a large rimmed baking sheet with PAM and arrange wings in a single layer.

Put baking sheet in a cold oven and turn oven to 450.
Cook for 30 mins.
Remove and turn wings over, cook for another 10 mins.

While cooking mix lemon juice, chicken broth and garlic.

Remove wings and pour sauce over them.

Put back in the oven for 10 more mins.
Serve wings with juice pour over them.
