  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp dijon mustard
  • 3 Tbsp hot sauce (I recommend Frank's Red Hot)
  • 1 tsp minced garlic (from 1 garlic clove)
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • ½ tsp lemon zest
  • 1 Tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 16 chicken wings, halved at joint to separate wingette and drumette with tips removed
  • 1 ½ cups whole wheat breadcrumbs
  • 1 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • ¼ cup finely chopped parsley

Yogurt Dipping Sauce

  • 1 cup fat-free yogurt
  • ½ tsp finely chopped parsley
  • ¼ tsp lemon zest
  • ½ tsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • tsp Worcestershire sauce


  • In a small bowl, combine olive oil, dijon, hot sauce, garlic, salt, pepper, lemon juice, and lemon zest and whisk until combined.
  • Put the wings in a large Ziplock bag and pour the marinade over them. Let marinate in the fridge for at least 30 minutes and up to 4 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees and lightly spray a baking pan with cooking oil.
  • In a large bowl, combine bread crumbs, parmesan, and parsley.
  • Once wings are done marinating, toss them in the bowl with the breadcrumb mixture to coat well and place on prepared pan. Bake for 30-35 minutes, rotating pan halfway through, until wings are golden and juices are running clear.
  • Serve wings with yogurt sauce and enjoy!
