Who doesn’t love the Wingstop’s lemon pepper wings? Lemon pepper chicken wings are flavorful, but not spicy like buffalo wings, so everyone can enjoy these easy to make wings.
Wings are a wonderful addition to a party, game day, or even for dinner. I know that I personally love wings in all varieties, my two favorites are garlic buffalo wings, and of course Parmesan garlic wings. This lemon pepper wings recipe will soon become part of your rotion of fun to make snacks.
I use a technique that is slightly different than the restaurant, but I feel this method is better for the home cook. Some people may think it is difficult to fry chicken or perhaps you want chicken wings that are slightly healthier. I like to two a two process method where we start the wings in oil, then transfer them to the oven. This has a couple of advantages, you can keep your wings warm until they are ready to be served, and you will know your chicken if fully cooked.
I also bread the wings with a light dusting of seasoned flour so the sauce will cling to the wings. No one wants a wing without sauce because that would just be fried chicken. I think wings need a savory sauce. You will need to purchase lemon pepper at your grocery store for this recipe. It is found on the spice aisle. You can use this later when you cook fish, or even simply grill a chicken breast. I find this a good spice to have in my spice
I hope you enjoy these lemon pepper wings for your next game night, Super Bowl, or they are even great for dinner.
