Tips for making honey lemon pepper chicken wings

What I truly love most about this recipe is that it’s just tossing everything together in a bowl and tossing it in the oven. No complicated steps, no flour, no patting the chicken dry or brining it for several hours… just simple steps and simple ingredients.

That said if you truly wanted to enjoy a brined chicken wing recipe, my beer brined wings are really good too. I’d say that these lemon pepper wings and the beer brine are our top 2 favorites around here.

If you do want the skin a little crisper, just turn on the broil after they’ve cooked and let them sit there for about 1 minute or 2. Keep a close eye though because burnt isn’t always a good flavor.

How to make honey lemon pepper wings

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F and line a baking sheet with foil. Set the pan aside.

Toss in the chicken wings and mix to coat well.

Lay the coated chicken wings on the prepared baking sheet in a nice and even layer (or as best as you can).
