Easy Lemon-Pepper Chicken Wings


We love lemon-pepper wings, especially during football season. I got tired of spending so much money on them that I decided to whip up my own version of Wingstop's lemon-pepper chicken wings. The end result was an empty platter and pleased bellies.

12 chicken wings


  • 2 cups oil, or as needed

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 tablespoon lemon-pepper seasoning

  • 12 chicken wings


  1. Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  2. Stir olive oil and lemon-pepper seasoning together in a bowl; set aside.

  3. Fry wings in hot oil until no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, about 8 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

  4. Toss hot wings with lemon-pepper mixture to coat.

Editor's Note:

We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. Amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and specific type of oil used.
