SUMAC LEMON BAKED CHICKEN WINGS

Just because football season has ended doesn’t mean that we can’t still eat chicken wings. Am I right?

My family loves chicken wings, especially my kids. There is something fun about eating food with your hands when you are a kid. It goes against everything you are taught about table manners, and for that reason my kids love it.

Sumac Lemon Baked Chicken Wings are a huge hit in my house. I especially love these wings because they are baked, which means they are healthier than the fried version you might eat a restaurant. Now I often hear people sigh when they hear the words baked and chicken wings together. For some reason there is a belief that if chicken wings are baked they can’t also be crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. That couldn’t be farther from the truth with baked wings.

The skin is crispy and the chicken is tender and juicy. Sumac Lemon Baked Chicken Wings are marinated in a tart, lemony sauce using olive oil, minced garlic, lemon juice and sumac. If you aren’t familiar with sumac it is a spice that is often used in Mediterranean cooking. I have a big jar of it and use it on everything including salads {it is one of the main ingredients in Fattoush Salad dressing}, meat and hummus. Sumac is a beautiful deep red color and has a tart, lemony taste. Lemon is one of my favorite ingredients to use in cooking so sumac is the perfect pairing.

If you are wondering where to buy sumac you can usually find it in a Mediterranean or Middle Eastern store, some local grocery stores {especially a more specialized store like Whole Foods} or an online spice store. I am lucky to have a Middle Eastern store near my house where I buy it. I love going there to stock up on things like sumac, za’atar, chickpeas, pita bread and more.

Today’s Sumac Lemon Baked Chicken Wings are created in partnership with Just BARE Chicken using their Family Pack Wingettes and Drummettes .  Just BARE wingettes and drummettes are simply chicken wings cut apart at the joint. Meaty and well-trimmed, the products are delicious, and perfect for adding any personal favorite wing seasoning, making them a hand-held favorite for snacks, meals and parties.

I am excited and honored to be partnering with Just BARE Chicken again this year to share new, delicious chicken recipes with you guys. It is extremely important to me that I feed my family healthy food and that I know where it comes from. Just BARE Chicken offers me just that. Just BARE provides its customers with products raised without antibiotics, from chickens that are vegetable and grain fed, and with no added hormones or artificial ingredients.

The brand’s products are traceable to family farms, which means that I can go to this page  and see exactly where my chicken comes from. Not only is this important to me but is a great teachable moment for my children in learning where the food they are eating comes from. I love that Just BARE Chicken takes pride in humane and responsible animal practices.

Sumac Lemon Baked Chicken Wings are great for many occasions including a weeknight meal, game day, finger food at a party or a snack for the kids after school. Because of my love for Mediterranean food I like to pair my chicken wings with creamy hummus, a fresh salad like tabbouleh and pita bread. If hummus isn’t your thing, you could create a simple yogurt dipping sauce using plain yogurt, your favorite spice {try cumin or za’atar}, minced garlic and lemon.  These chicken wings are dairy and gluten-free for those with dietary restrictions.

When grilling season comes around these chicken wings would also work great on the grill. You could easily pair them with a variety of vegetables on the grill for the perfect summer meal. If you are like my husband and grill year-round, give them a try on the grill now! If you love wings you also have to try these Garlic Parmesan Wings or these Oven Baked Crispy Wings. Both are favorites of ours too!

Yield: 2 dozen Chicken Wingettes and Drummettes
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 50 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour

Ingredients

For the chicken wings:

  • 2 pounds Just BARE Chicken Wingettes and Drummettes
  • 1 Tablespoon sumac
  • 1 lemon, sliced, divided
  • Fresh parsley and green onion for garnish, chopped

For the marinade:

  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 lemons, juiced
  • 5 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 Tablespoons sumac

Instructions

  1. In a large Ziplock bag combine the olive oil, salt, ground black pepper, lemon juice, minced garlic and sumac. Add the Just BARE Chicken Wingettes and Drummettes to the bag, close the bag and use your hands to massage the marinade into the chicken. Refrigerate overnight for at least for 2 hours.
  2. When ready to bake your chicken wings preheat the oven to 375°F . Remove the chicken from the refrigerator. Using tongs place the chicken wings in a single layer on a baking sheet along with 1/2 of the sliced lemons. Sprinkle the remaining 1 Tablespoon of sumac over the chicken wings.
  3. Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until the internal temperature registers at least 165°F.
  4. Optional step: If you want your chicken wings extra crispy move the chicken wings to the top rack and broil for 2-3 minutes, or until the skin turns golden brown and begins to crisp.
  5. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley and green onion and the remaining lemon slices. Serve the chicken wings with creamy hummus or a yogurt dipping sauce along with a fresh salad, like tabbouleh.

Notes

I love my food sweet and a tart so I used the juice of two lemons. If you want less lemon flavor try using just the juice of 1 lemon.

To make a yogurt dipping sauce use plain yogurt, your favorite spice like cumin or za'atar, minced garlic and lemon juice. Mix well and serve with the chicken wings.

You could also sprinkle feta cheese on the wings or even sprinkle the tabbouleh salad over the wings for added flavor.

These make a great game day food, meal for dinner or a finger food for a party!

These wings are gluten and dairy free

If you watch your salt intake you can take the salt down to 1/2 teaspoon.
