  • Author: Kelsey


  • 2 lbs chicken wings 
  • 2 tsp baking powder**
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp lemon zest
  • Sauce:
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp salt 
  • 1/4 cup ghee, melted
  • Serve with: Celery, carrots, bell peppers & ranch dressing


  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with foil and place a wire cooling rack on top.
  • Pat your chicken wings dry (the dryer they are, the crispy they will get!).  Then place them in a large bowl.
  • In a small bowl combine baking powder, ½ tsp salt, 2 tsp garlic powder and 1 Tbsp lemon zest and stir to combine.
  • Pour the spice mixture over the wings and toss to coat evenly.  
  • Place the wings, spread out evenly, on the cooling rack and bake for 30 minutes, flip them all, then bake for another 20-30 minutes or until browned and crispy.
  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl combine 1 tsp garlic powder, lemon juice, ¼ tsp salt, and ¼ cup melted ghee and stir to combine.
  • Place cooked wings in a large bowl and add ghee mixture on top. Toss to coat the wings.
  • Serve with veggies!


  • **To make these paleo, make your own baking powder by combining 2 tablespoons cream of tartar, 1 tablespoon baking soda, and 1 tablespoon tapioca starch
  • You can use butter instead of ghee.
