The poultry man in the Waiblingen market cuts the tips from the chicken wings before packaging them to sell. I always think of little elbows when I see them 🙂
One of the cousins posted a recipe on facebook for chicken wings seasoned with lemon, pepper and garlic that sounded easy and delicious. I just increased the garlic and was good to go! I served the elbows with a salad, pickled cucumber and fennel.
Lemon Pepper Chicken Wings
2lbs chicken wings
4 garlic cloves, finally chopped
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp pepper
1/2 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup olive oil
Put the chicken in a zip lock bag, then whisk the remaining ingredients in a bowl until well blended. Pour the marinade in the zip lock bag with the chicken and squish around. Marinate for at least 2 hours.
Remove the chicken from the bag, reserving the marinade. Place the wings in a roasting pan, skin side down and roast in a 425 F oven for 20 minutes, turn, baste and return to the oven for a further 15 minutes.
