Greek Chicken Wings with Lemon & Feta are the perfect combination for a light weeknight meal.  These crispy chicken wings have a wonderful lemony flavor and are inspired by Greek/Mediterranean cuisine.  They do need to be marinated so plan for timing, but you won’t regret your decision.  It’s a delicious recipe that can be enjoyed as an entrée, appetizer, or side dish.

The recipe can be found here.

Start by marinating the wings.  Whisk together the lemon zest, lemon juice, crushed garlic, olive oil, salt, pepper, and oregano in a large bowl.  Add the wings to a large Ziplock bag and pour the sauce over the top.  Seal the bag and toss to coat.  Place in the fridge for at least 2 hours or up to 12 hours if you want to prepare these waaaaaay ahead of time 😊

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.  Remove the wings from the marinate (use tongs) and place on the baking sheets in an even layer, leaving space between each wing.


Bake for 30 minutes then rotate the baking sheets and bake for an additional 30 minutes or until an internal temperature of 165 degrees F is reached.  The wings will be golden brown and crispy.

While the wings are baking, make the sauce.  Whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, minced garlic, cayenne pepper, pepper, and salt in a large bowl.  Once the wings have finished baking, add the parsley to the sauce and stir to combine.

Remove the wings to a serving platter.  Drizzle the sauce over the top and garnish with crumbled feta cheese.  Serve warm and enjoy!

Don’t skip the feta!  It adds a slightly salty and creamy taste to the wings and pairs well with the lemon sauce.  If you aren’t a fan of feta cheese, try using goat cheese instead.  You can also grill the wings vs. baking if you prefer.  The slightly charred exterior of the wings would be crunchy and amazing.

I hope you try this effortless and easy to prepare recipe!

Happy Cooking!
