Roasted Lemon Herb Wings

I have something to air, before I share my recipe. So bear with me for a just a little while.

I have something to said to those who don't like what they see here; again. If you think my blog suck for whatever reasons, you don't have visit again. Just click on the 'X' on the top right corner of your computer screen. It will save you from your agony. Please don't waste time sending me a 'comment', especially if you are going to sign off nameless. Once again, I stress that I blog for my own pleasure, not for you or anyone. I am happy with the amount of love this blog received. I'll do fine without yours. Go love someone else's perfect blog instead. Thank you very much.

I'm done. ;)  Thank you for bearing with me. :)  I got 'spat at' twice since last week. Nothing new to me and certainly not the worst compared to the hate mail I received sometime back. I got a feeling it's not going to be the last one.  Some people just have too much time on hand and are so kind to have to offer their two cents worth. ;P

Hopefully, that didn't affect what I'm going to share, which is last of my 3 experiments on wings, for the moment. The last 2 were a hit with my family. :) I'll be making those again very soon. :)

For this, it's a a result of tweaking this and this together. I always love chicken with a tangy taste. It opens up the appetite. Hmmm ... maybe it's not such a good ideas. :P

  • 8 Mid-joint wings or Drumlets
  • Juice of 3/4 Lemon, save the 1/4 wedge of lemon
  • 4 clove Garlic, pressed and chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce
  • 2 tablespoon Chopped Rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 2 teaspoon Ground Black Pepper

How to do it:
  1. Marinate wings with lemon juice, garlic and Worcestershire sauce overnight.
  2. Remove wings from marinade and pat dry.
  3. Brush wing with olive oil.
  4. Combine rosemary, salt and black pepper together.
  5. Sprinkle the herb combination on the wings.
  6. Roast on greased foil at 200C for 30 minutes.
  7. Serve immediately with the remaining lemon wedge.


  1. Ignore them Elaine..these people are weird,jealous perhaps...Just so you know, I am still reading each and every single post. Not leaving a comment does not mean you do not have readers and even if you have zero readers, it is not a concern because you have had mentioned you blog simple for your leisure...Thank you....I have tried many recipes from your blog and some of them remain favourites in our dinner table every other week.

  8. Dear wokkingmum,
    I enjoy your recipes because they're simple, and require minimal preparation. Perfect for a student who misses home cooked food overseas.

    Being signed on to yr mailing list have caused major drooling for me everytime you update, and I look forward to your posts.

    Take care and please continue doing what you do best! =)


  9. i happen to like your blog very much. your recipes are accessible enough to help me along. thanks for putting them up! :)

  10. I love your recipes and look forward to new posts eagerly! Please continue to do it and ignore all those nasty people with nothing better to do. Your recipes are fabulous and cooks with little experience (like me) can follow them and create lovely food for their familes (and themselves).

  11. Elaine,

    When people are jealous of you that means you're doing great cos only that, will make them jealous. These people just feel insecure when you're "HOT" on the wok. Agree?

    I've been trying out your recipe for baking Oreo muffins, chocolate cookies and that chocolate cake that you baked for your hubbie. It's great! Thanks a million!

    I'm thinking of baking some Halloween Cookies for the coming Halloween Party. Any idea where can I find those Halloween Cookies Cutters etc... and which recipe is best for making these cookies? May I know the recipe for those coloured icing and how to go about doing it? Thanks in advance :)

    Have a blessed week!

  12. Well, I have been reading your blog for quite some time and always popping by to check for interesting updates. When i see your opening address, i just have the strong urge to drop you a comment.

    Your blog is here to stay as long you want as it's your right to post whatever you want in here. You are nice enough to open up to the world to see. If those people don't have the intellectual capability to appreciate and post you 'rude remarks', they can jolly well don't visit it. It's their choice.

    Don't you be bothered with them because I hope this comment is being read by them.

  13. Sorry to read that you've been getting hate mail. I enjoy reading your blog. like you, I am also a home-cook and have my own blog, more to share with my family overseas and as a record for my girls. Ignore these people! Not worth wasting any energy on him/her. Keep up the good work.
