The Best Chicken Wings Recipe
I’ll be honest:
When, over a year ago, a young coworker emailed me an unsolicited recipe for what she called “amazing lemon pepper wings” I thought Girl, I’ve been making amazing chicken wings before you were born. There’s nothing new you could teach me about tasty, crispy wings. I’m a food blogger, after all. So, I cordially thanked her and tucked the recipe away.
I forgot all about it until the other day.
I was cleaning my inbox, due to procrastinating on another project. Do you do that too? Do you find “more important” things to do, so you don’t have to work on a dreaded task? All the time!
Guess what I found?
Yep, on the bottom of my inbox I found her amazing wings recipe. I could’ve easily deleted it, but I decided to try it, just so I don’t feel guilty for not giving it a chance. Her recipe called for 2 packets of Sazon seasoning, but I couldn’t find it and I like to know what I’m putting on my food. I used all organic spices. I adapted this homemade Sazon mix.
Finger Lickin’ Good Chicken Wings
Whenever I make wings at home, I make enough to have plenty of leftovers the next day. Welllll let me tell ya, after I made these wings one night, my husband and I went hungry the next day. These wings are finger lickin’ good, and there was a lot of finger lickin’ ’cause we ran out of wings, ha!

Makes 24 wingettes
1 dozen chicken wings
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoons oregano
1/4 teaspoon turmeric
1/2 tablespoon salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 tablespoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (more if you like it SPICY)
2 tablespoons lemon pepper seasoning
4 tablespoons oil
Juice of 1 small lemon
Here’s the great part:
Cut apart chicken wings at the joint. Toss and marinate the wings with all other ingredients for at least 1 hour in the refrigerator.
Preheat oven on 550 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 minutes prior to placing wings in the oven on a greased baking sheet. Bake for 35-40 minutes turning once after 20 minutes to crisp on each side. Finish with a sprinkle of lemon pepper seasoning if you desire.
If you’re serving this for a game night, which I would highly recommend, make sure you have enough wings. They go fast!
