Looking to change up your standard buffalo wings? How about making some lemon garlic chicken wings instead. It’s a great break from the heat and good for the entire family to enjoy, especially the kids! The zestiness of the lemon gives the wings a refreshing summer taste while the garlic and parsley add a punch of flavor to a plain wing.  And best of all, because the wings are first made on the grill, you get a delicious crispy grilled texture.

Lemon Garlic Chicken Wing ingredients

Grill the chicken wings first.

In a large bowl, coat raw chicken wing pieces in olive oil and season them with lemon pepper seasoning. Toss them around to make sure each piece is nicely seasoned.

Heat up the Big Green Egg grill to 350 degrees and place the wings on indirect heat.  Make sure to flip sides every 5 minutes for about 35-40 minutes or until wings reach an internal temperature of 180 degrees.

How to make the Lemon Garlic Sauce

While the wings are on the grill, it’s time to make the sauce.  In a sauce pan add a stick of butter⁣, minced garlic, freshly squeezed lemon juice, lemon zest, honey, lemon pepper seasoning and chopped parsley⁣. Let the ingredients simmer over low heat for 10 minutes allowing the butter to melt and mix nicely together for that perfect wing coating.  The aroma from this sauce fills the kitchen with that tangy and savory scent. Trust me, you’ll be salivating before this recipe is ready!

Time to sauce up the chicken wings and eat!
