  • 2 lbs. chicken wings portions wingettes and/or drummettes
  • 3 cloves garlic crushed
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • ½ tsp. salt to taste*
  • 2 ½ tsp. lemon pepper seasoning divided
  • 2 Tbsp. cornstarch tapioca or arrowroot starch
  • 1 ½ Tbsp. butter melted, or ghee*


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl whisk together crushed garlic, lemon juice, olive oil, and salt (if lemon pepper seasoning is salt-free.) Add chicken wings and toss to combine.
  3. In a small bowl whisk together 1 ½ teaspoons lemon pepper seasoning and tapioca flour. Sprinkle mixture over wings and toss to combine.
  4. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and place wings in a single layer. (You can also place them on a wire rack to get them extra crispy!)

  5. Bake wings in preheated oven for 40-45 minutes, flipping halfway through.

  6. While chicken wings are baking, whisk together melted butter and remaining 1 teaspoon of lemon pepper seasoning. Once wings are done, brush lemon pepper-butter mixture over wings. Broil wings on high for 4-6 minutes or until skin is crispy and slightly browned.
  7. Serve lemon pepper wings immediately with a sprinkle of freshly ground black pepper and lemon zest and enjoy!
