Wings aren’t just game day fare. And baked wings offer all the flavor of the deep-fried variety without the added fat. When shopping, make poultry products the last items you select at the store. Once home, the products must be refrigerated or frozen promptly, according to the National Chicken Council.
Lemon-Pesto Chicken Wings
Yield: 6-8 servings
4 pounds chicken wings, tips removed
3/4 cup store-bought basil pesto
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1 lemon, zested and juiced
1. Heat oven to 400F.
2. Place wings in a single layer on a baking sheet. Place in oven and bake for 25-30 minutes or until wings are well browned and crispy.
3. While wings are roasting, combine pesto, red pepper flakes, lemon juice, and lemon zest in a bowl large enough to hold all wings.
4. When wings are finished, remove from oven and place in pesto mixture. Toss to coat well.
