Recipe courtesy of Women of Today (www.womenoftoday.com)



  • 3 lbs. of Organic Antibiotic-Free Chicken Wingettes (Wings/Drumettes)

  • 1.5 large lemons juiced plus 1 tsp of lemon juice

  • 3 garlic cloves finely chopped

  • 1 and a half tsp flake salt

  • 1 tsp paprika

  • 1 tsp olive oil

  • Honey for drizzling in broiling step


* I keep it this recipe simple you can add more spices and extra seasoning depending on how your kids taste buds are.


*Oven will be set to 375 degrees, but chicken needs to marinate for at least 2 hours before cooking*

Step 1: In a large bowl, squeeze the juice of 1 and half large lemons over the chicken.

Step 2: In a small bowl, mix together the garlic, salt, paprika, olive oil, and reserved 1 tsp of lemon juice to form the rub. Massage the rub in the chicken and marinate in the refrigerator for 2 hours minimum or overnight.

Step 3: Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and position the rack in the center of the oven.

Step 4: Place the marinated wings and drumette skin side down on the foil-lined large baking sheet in a single layer. Bake for 45 minutes.

Step 5: Remove baking sheet from oven and turn the pieces over, for the wings, skin side up and bake for 10 minutes.

Step 6: Remove wings from oven and raise oven rack to top third of the oven. Increase the oven temperature to Broil.

Step 7: While wings are out of the oven, drizzle honey over wings. Return chicken wings to oven and broil 2-3 minutes. (Warning – Watch them closely, they can burn easily depending on your oven strength.)

Step 8: Second time, remove the wings from the oven and drizzle a little more honey. Return to oven for another 2-3 minutes until nicely browned. (Warning – Watch them closely, they can burn easily depending on your oven strength.)
