Lemon Pepper Chicken Wings

Wings aren’t just for Wednesdays! I make chicken wings as an appetizer to a main dish meat, and as often as I can. For instance, I love these Honey Sriracha Chicken Wings, and Crispy Air Fryer Chicken Wings that use NO OIL!

These Lemon Pepper Chicken Wings are brushed with lemon pepper and butter and baked twice to get that crispy perfection.

Chicken wings are a constant craving for me, yet only as an adult. Kid-me would never try Buffalo Chicken Wings, for instance. Now, Lemon pepper is another flavour that I simply can’t resist. Seems like an odd combination, but it’s delicious.

Thing is, I have ordered them at a restaurant or bar before and they were terrible. Some had too much pepper and other way too sour. I hate having to wipe off a wing seasoning in order to be able to eat them.

This recipe my friends, is perfection. Yet more importantly, so very simple. There isn’t a ton of ingredients and steps, just 4 ingredients.

Some recipe will call for lemons and pepper and ways to make your own rub, but the best trick is just to use lemon pepper seasoning. It’s a no fail spice that I also use to make my Lemon Pepper Asparagus.

What is lemon pepper seasoning made of?

Here’s a fun fact, this seasoning actually contains lemon, pepper, garlic, onion, and salt. So there’s no need to use anything else when making this flavour of wings. Actually, it’s a seasoning that I always have on hand and quickly go and purchase when I use the last of it.
