Paleo Lemon Pepper Chicken Wings


  • 3 pounds chicken wings
  • 3 tablespoons avocado oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons ghee
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • juice of 1/2 lemon, about 2 tablespoons
  • 2 teaspoons lemon pepper seasoning I use Trader Joes brand


  • Preheat oven to 400° and line a sheet tray with foil. Place a wire cooling rack on top on the foil- this will help the wings get crispy on both sides. Set aside while you prepare the wings.
  • Put all the wings in a big bowl and pat dry with paper towel. Add the avocado oil and toss until evenly coated,
  • Place all the wings on the sheet tray, skin side up. Sprinkle salt evenly on top and bake for 45 minutes,
  • During the last 10 minutes of baking, making the lemon ghee mixture. In a sauce pan, combine ghee, lemon zest and juice and whisk until fully combined.
  • Remove the wings and dip them in the lemon mixture. I find tongs work best for this. Place them back on the sheet tray skin side up.
  • Brush remaining ghee on the wings and evenly sprinkle with lemon pepper seasoning.
  • Bake for 5 more minutes.
