Every so often I like to make a trip to Wingstop for their lemon pepper chicken wings but no matter how many wings I order, there just never seems to be enough.  My family just devours them and leaves us all wishing for more.

That’s why we decided we should attempt to try making our own lemon pepper chicken wings.  I mean, how hard can it be? And what we discovered is, it’s really not very hard at all!

We started with a giant bag of frozen chicken wings from Costco and some lemon pepper.

At first, we baked the wings in the oven but quickly realized that was not the way to do it.  Then we tried frying which resulted in much better tasting chicken wings.

The trick we learned was to double fry the wings.  What this does is let the chicken cool for a minute to let the skin crisp up before putting it back in the oil for a second fry to create that crispy outside while maintaining a juicy tender chicken inside.  It’s not necessary but I highly suggest it!

These wings are perfect for a snack, appetizer, or a party.  They’re so good, people will think you ordered them from a restaurant.

You can serve them with a side of ranch and veggie sticks or with a side salad for a delicious dinner.

Which ever way you decide to enjoy these wings, you will never go back to buying lemon pepper wings from a restaurant again!

3) Add enough oil to cover about 1/2 inch of pan of choice (we use a cast iron with good results).  Heat oil up to 375F (if you don’t have a thermometer, just wait until the oil starts to lightly smoke).

4) Once the oil is ready, set heat to medium and carefully add 1/2 of the chicken batch inside (around 10 pieces).  Cook for 3 minutes and then rotate and cook the other side for another 3 minutes.  Note – if you can comfortably fit all the chicken in one go, do so by all means.

5) Transfer to a cooling rack for 1 minute.  If you don’t have a cooling rack, place on a plate with a paper towel to soak up oil.  After 1 minute, place the cooked wings back into the oil and cook for an additional 1 minute per side and transfer to cooling rack then into a large mixing bowl.  This process is called ‘refrying’ or ‘double-frying’, which is the trick to get something super crunchy.  Repeat the frying process with the 2nd batch if needed.
