Lemon Chicken

Lemon Chicken
Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Yeast-Free, Soy-Free, Corn-Free, Peanut-Free

A wonderful, summery flavour!


2 ½ pounds of wings (or chicken pieces)
½ cup fresh lemon juice (can use bottled)
5-6 large garlic cloves, chopped
1 tbsp crushed back peppercorns
2 tsps sea salt
¼ cup olive oil

Warning: Add the ingredients in the order given before mixing, or the lemony flavour will be lost.


Place chicken in a large glass or enamel bowl and pour over it the lemon juice, garlic, and crushed peppercorns. Sprinkle on sea salt, pour the olive oil all over the chicken last, and finally stir.

Marinate at room temperature for two hours, or in the refrigerator overnight (There is more lemony flavour the longer you let it soak!). Stir occasionally to re-coat the chicken.

BBQ the chicken wings until brown and cooked through, about 15-20 minutes. Turn after the first 10 minutes. For larger chicken pieces, increase the time accordingly.

Serves 2-4 people.
