How to Make Lemon Pepper Wings

  • Prepare the Chicken Wings – Preheat the oven to 425°F. Pat the chicken wings dry with a paper towel, place them into a large bowl, and drizzle them with oil.
  • Assemble the Chicken Wings – Place on a baking sheet with a bit of space in between each one. Don’t overcrowd the chicken wings, or else they won’t have enough space to get crispy!
  • Bake the Chicken Wings – bake for 40 minutes or until they turn golden brown and crispy.
  • Make the Lemon Pepper Butter Sauce – Melt the butter in a medium size bowl and stir in lemon pepper seasoning. Pour the sauce over the wings and toss until well-coated then serve.
