Try our easy breaded and fried lemon pepper chicken wings recipe featuring homemade lemon pepper seasoning.
– Chicken wings – Seasoned flour – Egg wash - Lemon Pepper Seasoning - Brine (optional)
– Lemon zest – Coarse ground black pepper – Diamond Crystal Kosher Salt – Granulated garlic – Granulated onion – MSG Flavor Enhancer (e.g. Ac’cent)
Dip wings into the egg wash, ensuring that each piece is well coated. The egg wash helps the flour adhere to the chicken and creates a crispy coating.
Once coated with the egg wash, dredge it in the seasoned flour mixture, pressing the flour onto the chicken to create a textured coating.
Fry until it is golden brown and cooked through.
Toss the cooked wings in the dry rub until they are evenly coated. Alternatively, melt butter, add seasoning and lemon juice. Simmer, then coat wings in sauce.
