  • 2 pound chicken wings
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper freshly ground
  • 2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon parsley fresh, chopped for garnish


  • Preheat oven to 425 F degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Place all wings in a medium sized bowl. Drizzle the wings with the olive oil and toss well, making sure each wing is coated with a bit of olive oil.
  • Sprinkle the chicken wings with the pepper and salt, and toss well.
  • Arrange the wings in a single layer on the prepared baking pan. Bake for about 40 to 45 minutes or until they're golden crisp.
  • Sprinkle with more salt and pepper if preferred and garnish with some chopped parsley.
  • Serve while warm.


My wings already came pre-cut into wingettes and drumettes, but if they are not, remove the wing tip then cut them vertically through the joint. Discard the wing tip. 
If your wings aren't golden and crispy after 45 minutes, turn the broiler on and broil them for about 3 more minutes, watching them carefully as they could burn quickly.
Please keep in mind that nutritional information is a rough estimate and can vary greatly based on products used.
