Here is another one of our Father's Day appetizers. We enjoy chicken wings, but prefer not to deep fry them. I found this recipe here several years ago and it's got great taste and is fairly simple to make. 4 pounds chicken wings, cut in half at joint
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice (from 2 lemons)
1 tablespoon ground pepper
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon onion powder
2 teaspoons coarse salt
2 teaspoons dried thyme or italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted
Blue cheese or ranch dressing, or barbecue sauce, for dipping
Preheat oven to 500 degrees. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with foil. In a large bowl, toss chicken wings with lemon juice. Add pepper, garlic and onion powders, and salt. Add thyme, crushing it between your fingers as you go. Add cayenne and melted butter. Stir mixture thoroughly, then arrange wings in one layer on baking sheet.
Cook 20 minutes, then rotate sheet and flip wings. Cook until wings are browned and cooked through, 10 minutes. Serve with desired dipping sauce.
