Lemon and Pepper Chicken wing


  • 3 lbs chicken wings party style wings cut into sections
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • oil for frying
  • 1/4 cup butter melted
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon pepper seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
  • lemon wedges and parsley sprigs for serving optional

  • 1/2 cup dried lemon peel
  • 2 1/2 tbsp black pepper
  • 1 tbsp onion powder
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 2 tsp garlic powder



  • Pat chicken wings dry with paper towels. Line a large plate or bowl with a few paper towels. Set both nearby. In a large skillet, heat 2-3 inches of oil to 170 degrees C (using a candy thermometer helps!)
  • While oil heats, place flour and salt in a large Ziploc bag. Gently shake bag to mix ingredients.
  • Add prepared chicken wings to Ziploc bag. Seal bag, then shake to thoroughly coat chicken.
  • Working in batches of 5-7, drop coated chicken wings in heated oil. Fry for 10-12 minutes, turning halfway through. Wings are done when they are a deep golden brown. Once cooked, place chicken wings on prepared paper towel lined plate. Repeat this step until all wings are cooked.
  • In a small mixing bowl, mix together melted butter and lemon pepper seasoning. Use a basting brush to coat both sides of the fried chicken wings with buttery lemon pepper. Serve lemon pepper chicken wings immediately with fresh parsley and lemon wedges as garnish (optional).
