Ingredients

  • 12 large chicken wings
  • 2 lemons
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tbsp cracked black peppercorns (see notes)
  • 1 tsp salt

Instructions

  • Pre-heat the oven to 220ºC/200ºC fan forced/Gas mark 7.
  • Arrange the wings in a single layer in a roasting tray lined with cooking paper.
  • Cut the lemons in half and squeeze them evenly over the wings, then cut each half in half again and nestle them in-between the wings.
  • Pour over the olive oil then sprinkle over the oregano, cracked black pepper and salt.
  • Place the wings in the oven and roast for an hour until golden.
  • Serve immediately with the gummy sticky lemon pieces.

Notes

There is quite a lot of black pepper on these wings, I love it like this, it adds a wonderful aromatic background heat to the chicken, but I always leave a few wings pepperless, or at least lightly peppered to give to the boys.
If you are sensitive to pepper or like a mild dinner than just grind over a small amount of pepper, the result won't be quite as aromatic but I can tell you they will still be demolished.
