Lemon Pepper Wings

Lemon Pepper Wings are easy to make and so much better for you because they are baked instead of fried! Coated in flour, spices and my secret ingredient, these baked chicken wings are crispy on the outside and tender and juicy on the inside. Serve with my lemon yogurt dip for a truly zest bite.

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 pounds chicken wings or drumettes thawed or fresh about 3 dozen pieces
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons lemon pepper seasoning
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Zesty Lemon Yogurt Dip

  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • Pinch of salt
  • ½ teaspoon granulated garlic
  • Hot sauce to taste

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Rinse chicken wings and trim any excess skin. Do not remove the skin or you will lose the crispiness. Pat chicken dry.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together flour and seasonings. Add chicken and coat with the flour mixture.
  4. Prepare a large cookie sheet by covering with foil and spraying with cooking spray. Top with a baking rack if you have one; otherwise just the foil is fine.
  5. Arrange chicken on the cookie/baking sheet, at least an inch apart.
  6. Bake for 30-35 minutes, turning once after about 20 minutes.
  7. Meanwhile combine yogurt dip ingredients in a small bowl. Cover and. Store in the fridge until ready to see. Garnish with lemon zest and black pepper.
  8. Serve with celery and carrot sticks and a side of Zesty Lemon Yogurt Dip or ranch dressing for dipping.

NOTES

  • If you want more saucy wings, you can mix 4 tablespoons of melted butter with a couple teaspoons of lemon pepper seasoning and toss the cooked wings in the mixture.
  • Make sure you are using baking POWDER and not soda as this makes a huge difference in taste and texture.
