Ingredients You’ll Need

Chicken Wings:

You’ll need a pack of chicken winglets. I think they come in a pack of 12. Typically, most people are going to want to make more than 12 wings at a time. The seasonings for this recipe could honestly probably cover 2-3 dozen.

Salt:

Once you pat all the winglets dry, you’ll sprinkle salt all over them.

Lemon Pepper Seasonings:

For seasonings, you need the zest from a whole lemon, some black pepper, white pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, flour and baking powder. You’ll toss all the wings in the seasonings before baking.

How to Make Lemon Pepper Wings

Step two:

Zest one whole lemon and add your zest and all the remainder of seasonings to a large bowl. Toss each wing individually and add them back to a parchment paper lined baking sheet.

Step three:

Bake for 30 minutes on 400 and then increase the oven to 500 degrees for 10 minutes. The internal temperature of the wings should be at least 165 degrees. Serve and enjoy.
