Roasted Garlic Lemon Pepper Wings


4 LBS chicken wings

1 1/2 TBSP lemon pepper

1/3 cup jalapeno juice

 1TBSP olive oil

1/2 TSP grated lemon zest


Sauce Recipe

6 cloves garlic

2 TBSP lemon juice

1 TBSP jalapeno juice

1/2 TSP salt



First start roasting your garlic in the oven. This will be a key component for your sauce. In a small pan or even tin foil, place your garlic cloves in the pan with a little olive oil drizzle. Bake until soft on 350 degrees.  In a large mixing bowl add your cut chicken wings. Season with lemon pepper, jalapeno juice, olive oil, and lemon zest. Once seasoned throw them on the grill and let them cook until they get that nice smoky char and are cooked thoroughly. By now your roasted garlic should be ready. In a small bowl mix your lemon juice, jalapeno juice, salt, and roasted garlic. Mash the garlic into a paste making a nice thick sauce that we will use to toss over our charred chicken wings. Take the wings off the grill and put them back into a large bowl. Then pour all of the roasted garlic sauce over them. Give them a nice toss to coat the wings then proceed to put them back on the grill for 3-5 minutes. Voila!
