Lemon Pepper Wings

Lemon Pepper Wings

The lemon pepper wing trend has been here for a while and I finally got a chance to try them. The tangy lemon combined with a slightly sweet and pepper after-taste is a combination to die for. I will certainly be making these again and I hope you enjoy!

Ingredients
  

Wings

  • lbs chicken wings (drums and flats)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tbsp onion powder
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • ½ cup flour

Sauce

  • ½ stick butter (4 tbsp)
  • tbsp lemon pepper seasoning
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • ½ small lemon
  • 2 tbsp favorite hot sauce (optional but recommend)

Instructions
 

  • Pat dry your chicken wings with a paper towel.
  • Mix the seasonings in with the chicken.
  • Coat chicken in flour.
  • Fry at 350F for 5-8 minutes or until golden brown. Alternatively, you can air fry for 13 minutes at 375F.

Sauce

  • Melt butter in a pan then add the lemon pepper seasoning, honey, lemon juice from 1/2 a lemon, the zest from that lemon, then season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Allow this to simmer on a pan for 3 minutes.
  • Toss the sauce in the chicken and I would recommend adding 3 tbsp of your favorite hot sauce at the very end. I didn't end up doing this in the video but tried it after and it was bomb.
