My family and I love chicken wings, especially during football season. I just got tired of spending so much money on wings for our party that I decided to whip up my own version of Wing Stop's® lemon pepper chicken wings. The ending result was an empty platter and pleased bellies.

I followed all the instructions but i lightly floured chicken and fried it then tossed it. My household loves lemon so i squeezed a little bit of real lemon in the oil mix and tossed the wings. They were a hit! Read More

I made these last night and they came out EXTREMELY salty. I definitely recommend using 1 part lemon pepper seasoning to 2 parts of oil/butter to toss your wings in. I don't know if the kind of seasoning I have has a s ton of extra salt but OMG had to wipe all my wings down with paper towels to get the excess off Read More

Once I learned how to make these, Wing Stop and any other chain restaurant's lemon pepper wings just weren't right! One thing I would suggest is for every teaspoon of lemon pepper seasoning, use 2 teaspoons of olive oil. The seasoning I have can be way too salty if it isn't measured this way. Read More

This recipe is a big hit. My husband loved it. I had to had a tad more olive oil to mix the lemon pepper better. Read More

These are incredible. Slight alteration - I season chicken and let it sit for an hour or so in fridge, then I shake the chicken in flour and use avocado oil to fry (healthy fat and great for frying since it's perfect for really high temperatures). After chicken is fried I brush with olive oil, lemon pepper seasoning and lemon juice mixture. Better than Wing Stops and way more healthy!!! Read More

I opted to bake versus fry the wings as a healthier option (375 degrees for 55 minutes). They were delicious, but I would probably prefer a bit more lemon pepper flavor the next time. I expected the wings to be less crispy than fried, but actually, the consistency was perfect. Good recipe that we'll try again. Read More

This was a "10". I lightly floured them and I also put a little zest in the seasoning. My family was eating them as fast as I could produce them. They never made it to the platter! Great and so easy too! Read More
