We're bringing you our favorite chicken wing recipe just in time for National Chicken Wing Day July 29!

Crispy chicken wings flavored with lemon and rosemary — plus a little kick from crushed red pepper — makes for a perfect flavor combination.

These wings are a great snack for game day or can be served as a meal with a garden salad. (This recipe would also work well with a whole chicken!)

Lemon and Rosemary Chicken Wing ingredients:

  • 2 lbs. chicken wings, cut apart at joints, wing tips discarded
  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • 2 tbsp. oil
  • 10 sprigs rosemary

  1. In a large bowl, combine chicken wings, lemon juice, and oil. Toss until evenly coated. Refrigerate for at least one hour.
  2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  3. Arrange the chicken wings on a baking sheet or roasting pan. Top wings with lemon slices and rosemary, then season with crushed red pepper, salt, and pepper.
  4. Bake until chicken meat is no longer pink and the skin is crispy, approximately 25 to 30 minutes.
  5. Serve hot and enjoy ... and don't forget the napkins!
