  • 2 lbs chicken wings cut into wingettes and drummettes
  • 3 Tbsp butter unsalted, melted
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 2 Tbsp lemon zest freshly grated
  • 2 tsp black pepper freshly ground; you also use a pepper medley (pink, green, white, black)


  • Preheat oven to 400F.
  • Take the wings out of the fridge and let sit at room temperature for 30 minutes, while the oven is preheating.
  • Dry the wings with paper towels and place in a large bowl. Drizzle with the melted butter. Sprinkle the salt, pepper and the grated lemon zest, and mix well, ensuring even coating.
  • Transfer the wings to a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
  • Bake the wings on the second highest rack at 400F, for about 30 minutes, then drop the temperature to 350F and continue baking for another 10-15 minutes, or until the wings have sufficiently browned.
  • Remove from the oven and serve immediately.
