Grilled Rosemary Chicken Wings

Rosemary Chicken Wings

ZERO food styling here guys. I snapped this photo of these delectable chicken wings as they were popping hot grease all over me while they were cooking on the grill. The photo does not do these bad boys justice!

Will you just look at that crispy skin? I have no words.

We have a restaurant here in Tampa called Anthony’s Cole Fire Pizza and they serve the most amazing wings bursting with rosemary and garlic. I searched all over the web for their recipe, but came up with nothing. So I had to wing it..get it? “Wing it”. Oh what ever, my husband laughs at with me.

So you know by the title, these are not you average “Buffalo Style” chicken wings. They are better. Seriously, my mouth waters when I think of them. I could probably eat 20 of them.

FYI..these do require a 24 hour marinade..DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP.

Rosemary Chicken Wings
Recipe type: Appetizer
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 4
Chicken wings with rosemary, garlic and lemon!
  • 4 pounds chicken drumettes or wings or both
  • ½ cup lemon juice (the juice of 3 large lemons)
  • ¾ cup regular olive oil
  • 4 cloves of garlic, peeled and smashed
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 4 springs fresh rosemary, stripped and roughly chopped
  • ¾ tablespoon coarse Kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  1. Place the chicken drumettes in a gallon freezer zip lock bag.
  2. In a large measuring cup, mix together the lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, oregano, rosemary, salt and pepper.
  3. Pour the olive oil mixture over the chicken wings.
  4. Push as much air out of the zip lock bag and seal.
  5. Place the bag flat in a 13 x 9 pan (as a precaution incase it leaks)
  6. Place in the refrigerator and marinate for 24 hours turning the bag every so often.
  7. The next day, remove the chicken from the refrigerator and allow to sit out for 30 minutes.
  8. Meanwhile, place a grill pan on the grill and preheat your grill to as hot as it gets. Mine got to about 450-500.
  9. Drain the excess marinade from the chicken.
  10. Place the chicken on the grill and cook for about 8 minutes per side or until the skin is crispy.

    You are so funny, I’m the same way about food styling…most of the time I just have no time to bother. We are hungry! 🙂

    These look great! I love grilling wings. Rosemary and garlic…yum! Before you even mentioned, these wings reminded me of Anthony’s!! My husband has cravings for that place and their wings. I’ve tried to recreate them at home too. So delicious!!

    No food styling? The grill shot was making my mouth water. These look fantastic. I have never grilled wings but, now I can’t wait to try. Do I really have to wait 24 hours? Yum!

    I have fresh rosemary growing on my deck right now. I’m definitely making these for my next pool party/cookout!

  10. 14

    I could eat buckets of wings at any given time! These have to be made!!

    Can I tell you how much my boys LOVE chicken wings? It’s almost silly! I can’t wait to give these a try and let them go to town! It’s my first time here…thanks so much for the inspiration! I’ll be back soon for sure.

    Lots of yummy love,

    Yum! I’m not a huge buffalo wing kind of girl; these are more my style. Plus, I think my hunny would love them! P.S. I giggled at the “wing” joke. 😉

  15. 19

    Rosemary and chicken were made for each other, looks divine!

    I love chicken wings on the grill, and I think your picture of them looks great. I have never had wings with rosemary, but I can’t wait to try it. Thanks for a great post!

    Perfect for grilling season! I never grill wings, and I totally should!

  19. 23

    could you be a doll and send me a dozen of those and some potato salad? please? thank you! 😉

  20. 24

    styling shmyling. this is something that’s gonna be gorgeous to me regardless of how it’s displayed. 🙂

    I love grilled and/or fire roasted wings, it gives them such a better flavor profile and yes, delicious golden skin. Nice job on “wingin’ it”.

  22. 26

    I LOVE Anthony’s wings. I honestly think the pizza is just okay. Thanks for this recipe!

  23. 27

    Leslie, these were AMAZING! My hubby said they were the best wings EVER! Thanks for the recipe, I think they are better than the wings at Anthony’s!

  24. 28

    Yum! Made these tonight. They say in the marinade for 48hrs due to unforseen stuff that prevented us from grilling last night… but I think I’ll do a 48hr marinade from now on, they were amazing! Hubby claims to not like ‘Christmas trees’ in his food (rosemary) but he was hooked at first bite!

    Saw these over on Family Kitchen posted by my SIL Aggie. I’ve been to Anthony’s Coal Oven Pizza when traveling and I love their rosemary wings. These look super good.

    In the ingredient’s list 1/2 lemon juice, is that suppose to be 1/2 cup of lemon juice. Also, I do not have a grill could I bake these in the oven, if so how long and at what temperature? Thanks.

      Thanks for pointing out my error. I updated it, yes, it is 1/2 cup lemon juice.
      I have never baked them. If you do they won’t be as crispy, but they will still be delicious!!!
      YOu can just bake them at 400 for about 45 minutes .

  27. 32

    i made these last night….so good

  28. 33

    I made these in the oven and they were delicious. The last few minutes I put the oven on broil and they came out crispy. Love this recipe!!!
