  • 2 lb raw chicken wings
  • 4 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp lemon zest
  • 1 tsp fresh black pepper
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp avocado oil or substitute another neutral oil
  • ¼ cup fresh grated parmesan cheese


  • In a small bowl, mix 1 tbsp of lemon zest, 2 tbsp of lemon juice, 1/2 tsp of black pepper, 1/2 tsp of salt, and 1 tbsp of avocado oil in a small bowl.
  • Add the chicken wings to a bowl, add the sauce and toss together to full coat. Let the wings rest for 5-10 minutes (optional).
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Add the seasoned wings to the prepared sheet leaving space enough space between each wing.

  • Remove the baked wings from the oven and lightly brush the lemon pepper sauce over the wings. Season with parmesan cheese and serve immediately.
