  • 1 bulb garlic
  • 2 teaspoons olive or vegetable oil
  • 1 container (10 oz) fresh Alfredo sauce
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated lemon peel

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher (coarse) salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly cracked pepper
  • 3 lb (1.5 kg) chicken wingettes and drummettes


  • 1
    Heat oven to 425°F. Line cookie sheet with sides with heavy-duty foil; spray with cooking spray.
  • 2
    To roast the garlic: Carefully peel paper-like skin from around bulb of garlic, leaving just enough to hold garlic cloves together. Cut 1/4 to 1/2 inch from top of bulb to expose cloves. Place cut side up on 12-inch square of foil. Drizzle bulb with 2 teaspoons oil. Wrap securely in foil. Place in pie plate or shallow baking pan.

    In 1-gallon resealable food-storage plastic bag, mix 1 tablespoon oil, the salt, pepper and chicken. Seal bag; shake to coat.
  • 4
    Place pie plate with foil-wrapped garlic in oven on lower rack. Place chicken on cookie sheet. Bake uncovered 30 minutes; turn chicken. Bake garlic about 15 minutes longer or until garlic is tender when pierced with toothpick or fork. Cool slightly. Bake chicken 5 to 15 minutes longer or until golden brown and juice of chicken is clear when thickest part is cut to bone (at least 165°F).
  • 5
    Gently squeeze soft garlic out of cloves, and press half of the garlic through a garlic press into 1-quart saucepan. Save remaining garlic for another use. Beat in Alfredo sauce and lemon peel with whisk; gently heat over medium-low heat 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from heat; set aside. Toss chicken with half of the sauce. Serve warm with remaining sauce for dipping.

Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    Purchase already cut chicken wings in the meat or frozen foods section. They're sometimes called chicken drummies or wingettes and drumettes. You can use just drummettes if you prefer.
  • Tip 2
    Roasted garlic is absolutely delicious. Roasting results in a mellow, mild flavour.
