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.
My two favorites are garlic buffalo wings, and of course parmesan garlic wings. This lemon pepper wings recipe will soon become part of your rotation 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. 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.
- In the preheated oven, bake the wings on the wire rack over the cookie sheet for 10 to 15 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through.
- When chicken wings have finished baking, place them in a bowl with the butter and lemon pepper seasoning and stir until coated.
the best lemon pepper on the market is Lawry’s! I use it on practically all meats before cooking. It’s especially good sprinkled on top of sliced avocado’s too. Yum!!!
Thanks for that info Diane!
This recipe is remarkably terrible. No where near enough lemon pepper and terrible cooking method. This is what happens when someone thinks they can just come up with anything despite any culinary knowledge whatsoever.
This recipe is delicious, my 21yr old son that cooks only about twice per year has made it 2 times. Each time the wings have come out GREAT!
You sound upset D, maybe u just can’t cook nor follow directions. Don’t blame her, idiot.
I couldn’t of said it better!

I am interested in a copycat recipe for Wingstop’s blue cheese dip, is there one here?
One package plain yogurt. Equal amount mayonnaise (I just use the yogurt cup to measure). One package crumbled Bleu cheese. Tsp garlic powder. Two to four dashes of Tabasco sauce.
My stepdad (from Buffalo) used to make this when I was a kid. When Wingstop came to Houston, it was the closest thing to the original Anchor Bar wings and Bleu cheese around. You won’t be disappointed. I’m a purist when it comes to my wings & sauces.
We’ll give you a side of the sauce and seasoning if you ask nice. Anyways the sauce is soybean oil based, it’s called wing gold. Vegetable oil is a nice substitute. Mix it with lemon pepper and fry. Out recipes are simple as ever. Chicken, sauce, seasoning. 2 cups of seasoning per gallon of wig gold.
As for fries it’s first ingredient is sugar. It’s sweet seasoned salt. We just cut potatoes and blanch for a min and a half, cool, and for for 350 for 3 mins. This is way too much.
Would you happen to have the recipe for spicy lemon pepper wings from Pluckers?
You’d just add a buffalo sauce to it.. Though the lemon peppers do differ some.
No. You added some spicy spices like paprika or cayenne pepper. Not buffalo sauce. Buffalo isn’t spicy it’s just hot and lemon peppers don’t differ. It’s dehyrated lemon and pepper every time
Do you melt the butter
Per the recipe……….
Place wings on a rack on a cookie sheet and bake for 10 to 15 minutes. When chicken is golden brown combine with melted butter and lemon pepper.
Do you know if this recipe can be done with deep frying the wings?
I make the wing they were good but needed more lemon pepper and butter
NIKO O TAIT
next time zest a lemon in the butter for better results
Terreance Q Petty
what do you mean zest? While the butter is melting or after melting?
You need zest from a lemon. The skin of a lemon
Wow! Awesome cant wait to try it tonight!
Hello, can you tell me what kind of lemon pepper to use? They have several different brands at the grocery store.
Thank you for the recipe it was so good. By anychance u have the copy cat recipe for ranch sauce from wingstop? Thanks in advance
I will have to work on it.
If you dont have it already
Ranch flavor powder
you’ll have to figure out the proportions on your own they change all the time
I worked there….it’s just buttermilk and Hidden Valley Ranch dry seasoning packets.
Do you know what type of lemon pepper seasoning they use?
What brand of lemon pepper do they use? thanks.

How do they mix it
Do u have the recipe for Wingstop Hawaii wings?
CATHY L HORNING
Try this sauce
Equal parts Soy sauce, dark brown sugar and pineapple juice.
So- cook your wings like first step and instead of lemonpepper and butter use this sauce and bake until they are not wet, but crisp
Do we have to use the rack or can I just place them on a cookie sheet?
I tried it today. Turned out great. Thank you.
How much butter? It just says “1/3.”
It is 1/3 cup of butter.
what brand of lemon pepper seasoning
I believe this was Adam’s
OMG!! Stephanie.. you just read my mind without me knowing it, I just watched your garlic parmesean wings, and said to myself, I wonder when she will make the lemon pepper ones! This will be a hit for superbowl this year, especially with the boneless buffalo bites.
Lemon pepper anything sounds fantastic to me Stephanie and I’m sure with wings they are perfection!
Thank you very much! I hope you give the recipe a try.
We have tried to cut back on fried foods. We steam the wings for 13 min then bake for 35 min @ 375 degrees. If you want a little more crisp wing, place under broiler for 5 min. The lemon pepper wings are really good. So moist that they just seem to dissolve in your mouth.
After you had steamed ur wings did you still follow with the flour etc recipe? And were the wings cripsy?…..Anita!
I skip the flour. If you want a crispier wing, cut bake time to 30 min and broil for 10 min. Turning wings at the 5 min mark. The key step is to steam some of the fat out of the wings to insure they will be nice and moist. I did 6lbs of wings 3 weeks ago. Half lemon pepper and half traditional Buffalo garlic parmesan. I realize that this is a 3 step cooking process but it is worth it. Just a few extra mins.
One last thing. If you want to use flour, don’t, use corn starch instead. That change will crisp up the wings also. If you stay with this method go back to 35 min @ 375 degrees and 5 min under the broiler.
Whatever you do, you should cook it with organic food, here is their benefits http://tinyurl.com/mtzguu9
What are your favorite type of wings?
Buffalo Wild Wings: Mango Habanaro. … Jerk Chicken…. WingStop: Louisiana Rub
Thank you for your suggestions! I will keep them in mind!
Instead of frying can I just fully bake them? If so, for how long?
If you were going to bake them only, I would try for about 20 minutes, and check for doneness. Wings can vary a great deal in size.
Do you have the ranch dressing recipe from wing stop… I can’t have these wings without it!
did you ever get the ranch recipe? I could drink that dressing!!
Stephanie, can you please provide the recepie for wingstop`s french fries? I tried a few of the ones I found online, they were close but no exact replica….thank u
Lemon Pepper Wings from Buffalo Wild Wings ….Yummy!
