Homemade Lemon Pepper Chicken Wings

You see them on commercials. You hear rappers talk about them. And you’ve probably had some in your life, but trust me when I say you have never had lemon pepper wings like this. Juicy, never dry and full of lemon spice down to the bone. It’s even better than WingStop and Buffalo Wild Wings!

Without further ado, here’s the recipe:

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 50 minutes

Ingredients

Lemon pepper spice:

1 -2 tablespoon lemon zest, about 3 lemons
2 -3 tablespoons black pepper
1 tablespoon sea salt

Wings:

3 pounds of chicken wings (about 16 wings)
2 tablespoons of homemade lemon pepper seasoning (see below for directions)
1 lemon

Directions:

Lemon Pepper:
Preheat oven to 250 degrees. In a large bowl, combine lemon zest and black pepper. In a metal sheet pan fitted with foil, spread mixture evenly in pan. Allow to bake low and slow until zest is completely dried. Usually about 26-30 minutes.
Transfer lemon-pepper mixture to a bowl. Using the back of a spoon (or spice grinder if you have one), crush mixture until desired texture is achieved. Mix in salt, 1 tsp at a time. Continue to add salt until you have the right balance to fit your taste.
