  • 2 heads garlic
  • 1 2/3 cups extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • juice from 2 lemons (approximately 1/4 cup)
  • 3-4 pounds chicken wings (approximately 35-40 wings)
  • kosher salt


  • Separate the garlic cloves without removing their skins. Place them in a pot, cover with cold water and bring to a boil. Boil the cloves for 10 minutes, then drain and allow to cool.
  • Squeeze the cloves out of the skin into a food processor and pulse them several times. Then turn the machine on and pour in the olive oil, honey and lemon juice.
  • Place the wings in a large, sealable plastic bag and pour in the mixture. Seal and refrigerate overnight.
  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Place the wings (skin side up) and liquid in a large roasting pan or baking sheet with raised sides. Roast for 45-60 minutes, basting every 15 minutes, until the meat is cooked and the skin is brown and crunchy.
  • Remove the wings from the pan with tongs and place on a serving tray. Salt them generously before serving.
