Chicken wings are delicious, and it doesn’t matter the flavor! But out of all those flavors, a good fall-off-the-bone lemon pepper wings recipe hold a special place in my heart. Especially when there is some lemon pepper sauce, making it lemon pepper wet wings. Those are the lemon pepper chicken wings I dream of.
It is just something about that wetness that makes me want to eat it all up. Before we go any further, I need you to get your mind out of the gutter because this is not that type of blog. However, some good lemon pepper chicken wings inside their guts will make you feel sensational.
Now you can easily get some lemon pepper wings by going to a restaurant that sells wings. That’s cool and all, but here is my question. Why spend all that money on wings when you can use a lemon pepper wings recipe to make them yourself? Let me break the math down for you.
Saving Money With This Lemon Pepper Wings Recipe
A serving of wings is approximately 4 oz. If you were wondering, “how many wings are 4 oz?” The answer to that would be about 4 wings. This may vary depending on the size of the wings.
A wing joint will sell 10 wings for $9.99, but you can get 10 pounds of wings for $20 to $25 at the grocery store. 10 pounds of wings are 160 ounces, meaning that even if all the wings are large, you would still have close to 100 wings. For that many wings at a restaurant, you are spending over $100 easily unless they have some type of deal going on.
This lemon pepper wings recipe tastes better than theirs anyway. I’ll let you be the judge of that when you give this recipe a try.
My Lemon Pepper Wings Ideology
I always have been a fan of wings. Plain wings are cool, and wings with dry seasoning are even better. But wings with sauce on it are something special.
It is crazy that most wing joints that I have been to usually serve lemon pepper chicken wings with dry seasoning, and that’s fine. Some good lemon pepper wings are going to get the job done either way. But once you have a taste of that wet, it is hard to go back to dryness.
Wings are so good, it got me like, “Who invented lemon pepper wings?” Then I answer my own question by saying Jesus must have made the first recipe because lemon pepper wet wings taste like a piece of heaven.
If you were wondering, “what is lemon pepper seasoning is made of?” I would guess the tears of an angel.
We have been talking about lemon pepper wet wings, but what does lemon pepper wet mean? Some would say that lemon pepper wet mean the wings, toss in two batches of lemon pepper seasoning instead of one. I say lemon pepper wet is when the wings are in a lemon pepper sauce.
The Ultimate Lemon Pepper Sauce
I enjoy eating wings fried and baked. I’m not too picky with the way it is made. For lemon pepper chicken wings I prefer baked and here is why.
While cooking lemon pepper wings in the oven with something to cover them, the wings will create its own broth which will infuse with the lemon pepper seasoning. This will make the lemon pepper wings wet.
That is why the lemon pepper wings recipe is perfect for all my lemon pepper sauce lovers out there.
Are Lemon Pepper Chicken Wings Healthy?
Except for baked plain wings, baked lemon pepper wings are as healthy as it is going to get. Wings, in general, are not the healthiest option due to all the fat and skin wings contain.
If you are trying to be healthy while still satisfying your wing fix, then I recommend baking your wings.
That is one of the reasons I created this lemon pepper wings recipe. Wings can also be a part of your cheat meal, fried or baked.
Now if you were wondering “is lemon pepper seasoning keto-friendly?” The answer to that is yes!
