Grilled Chicken wings with Lemon and Garlic

3tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Juice of 1 lemon
Salt and black pepper
2-4 garlic cloves, crushed
16 chicken wings
2 tbsp chopped flat leaf parsley

Mix the oil, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and garlic, and place the chicken wings in this marinade. Leave for 1 hour, covered with cling film, in the refrigerator.
Place the wings on a piece of foil on a baking tray, and pour the marinade over, and cook under a pre-heated grill for 7 min, turning them over once, or barbeque them over glowing embers for the same time. Serve with chopped parsley

Super easy, and chicken wings are the cheapest, so right away this one has a lot going for it.

Here’s a tip though, don’t use a baking tray, because the juice will run right off of it and produce an alarming amount of smoke. Also, it took about 20 minutes in my grill, not 7. Still really quick though, and very tasty. Sort of subtle really. If I were to do them again, I would leave them in the marinade longer, and make them on a barbeque… or maybe make them exactly the same way because they were quite tasty.

They were from a book called Arabesque.
