What is sumac?
Sumac is the ground berry of a wild flower with a tart, tangy smack that’s similar to lemon. It’s perhaps most familiar for its role in the rub called “za’atar”, although it also figures predominantly in dressings and marinades.

In a small bowl, combine the olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, and sumac.
Drop the chicken wings in a shallow dish and rub the marinade all over them. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.
Preheat your grill on medium-high.
Place the chicken wings in a single layer over direct heat and grill, basting them occasionally with the marinade, until the wings are completely cooked, 8 to 10 minutes per side.
Sprinkle with salt and serve hot.
Recipe Testers' Reviews
I have to start with a disclaimer that I picked this recipe before I realized that the recipe asks that they are grilled. I do not own a grill so I baked the wings in the oven instead. They were delicious! The tartness of the garlic, lemon juice and sumac worked really well. I baked them at 400°F for just under 40 minutes and made a homemade blue cheese dip to go with them.
This is a pretty simple yet delicious recipe. Sumac gives it acidity in flavor! I used drumettes instead of wings. My advice would be to serve them with sauce. I used Ranch and it was a wonderful combo!
