I can never resist ordering chicken wings at restaurants – they’re incredibly crispy on the outside, yet juicy and tender on the inside. Add a savory lemon pepper butter and you have the absolute best lemon pepper wings imaginable!

How do you make lemon pepper wings?

This recipe starts with party style chicken wings, which are simply chicken wings that have been cut into two pieces. I feel that party wings are easier to eat and cook more evenly than whole chicken wings. The wings are coated in seasoned flour, then deep fried until crispy and golden brown. The finish touch is a coating of lemon pepper butter and a sprinkle of parsley. I like to garnish my wings with lemon wedges and sprigs of parsley, but those are optional additions.

Tips for lemon pepper wings

  • Use a thermometer to make sure your frying oil is at the correct temperature. You want your oil to be somewhere between 350 and 375 degrees F. If the oil is too hot, the wings will burn before the insides cook through. If the oil is too cold, your wings may absorb excess oil and be overly greasy.
  • I typically use canola oil to fry my wings, although any oil with a high smoke point will work, such as vegetable oil or peanut oil.
  • These wings are best served immediately when they’re piping hot and super crispy.
  • You can serve your wings as-is, or add a dip on the side such as ranch.

How do you make a lemon pepper sauce?

My lemon pepper sauce is a simple mixture of store bought lemon pepper seasoning and melted butter. The sauce is brushed all over the wings for maximum flavor.

Baked lemon pepper wings

If you prefer, you can bake these wings in the oven. To make baked wings, you’ll want to skip the flour coating and instead brush your wings with 3 tablespoons of oil and season with salt and pepper to taste. Bake your wings at 425 degrees F for 45-50 minutes, or until deep golden brown and crispy. Brush with the lemon pepper butter as directed in the recipe, sprinkle with parsley, then serve. You won’t get quite the same coating as you will in the frying method, but the baked version is still totally delicious!
