  3. Add lemon zest and pomegranate molasses and stir gently on low heat. Adjust salt if needed. Keep it aside

For the chicken

  1. Wash and pat dry all the chicken wings and place in a bowl. Cooling it in the refrigerator for a few minutes will help dry it out.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together rosemary, lemon zest, garlic, paprika , salt and pepper. Rub this spice mix on each chicken wing generously and let it sit in the same bowl for an hour to marinate.
  3. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C. Line a baking sheet with foil and place a wire rack over it. Grease the wire rack lightly with vegetable oil.
  4. Place each chicken wing on the wire rack and bake in the oven for 45 minutes. Flip the wings halfway through cooking to let it cook evenly.
  5. Toss the hot, baked chicken wings in this sauce and sprinkle green onions just before serving.
