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 chicken wings recipe.
You are going to find that this chicken wing recipe is a wonderful addition to a party, game day, or even for dinner. I know that I personally love wings in all varieties.
I use a technique that is slightly different than the restaurant, but I feel this method is better for the home cook. You are going to end up with a very crispy chicken wing.
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 method has a couple of advantages. You can keep your wings warm until they are ready to be served and you will know your chicken is 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 on hand.
I hope you enjoy these lemon pepper wings for your next game night, Super Bowl, or they are even great for dinner.

Wingstop Lemon Pepper Wings
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 1/2 pounds chicken wings
- Vegetable oil for frying
- 1/3 cup butter melted
- 1 teaspoon lemon pepper
- Preheat the oven to 350°F.
- Combine the flour, salt, and pepper in a medium-sized bowl and mix well.
- Cut the wings at each joint, and discard the wing tip or save it for stock. Dredge the drumettes and wingettes in the seasoned flour and shake off the excess.
- Add vegetable oil to a medium-sized saucepan until it reaches a depth of 4 inches, or use a deep fryer. Preheat the oil to 350°F.
- Deep-fry the wings in batches for 5 to 7 minutes, stirring once to make sure they cook evenly. Depending on the size of your pot, you may be able to fry about 5 or 6 wings at a time. When the wings are just beginning to brown, remove them from the oil and drain them on a wire rack resting on a cookie sheet.
- When chicken wings have finished baking, place them in a bowl with the butter and lemon pepper seasoning and stir until coated.
