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!

Here’s the secret to the best chicken wings recipe. She proved me wrong.

The best chicken wings recipe - All that's Jas

Ingredients:
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

 

Directions:

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!

To stretch the wings and make a meal serve them with crispy roasted sweet potatoes, or yummy cauli mac and cheese.

    A perfect example of why you can never throw away a recipe without trying it first! It’s not too surprising that this worked out though – lemon pepper anything is amazing πŸ™‚

    Wow Jas! These Chicken Wings look so good! I must admit I have had my fair share of amazing wings – mostly more Asian inspired ones – soy sauce braised chicken wings, five spice chicken wings, honey black pepper wings but never have I tried lemon pepper. I think I need to try this! Thanks for sharing it!

    The best chicken wings I’ve even had are at the Shinglemill Pub and Bistro in Powell River, BC. In the summer you can sit out on their deck and watch the boats enter and leave the lake at the boat launch right next door. In the winter you can do the same thing, but from the warm inside. I like the Thai sauce best. – Margy

    I’m confused! One of the pics shows the lemon juice being squeezed over the wings but there is no mention of that step in the recipe. Does the lemon juice go over the wings or mixed with the marinade? Thanks!

      Hi Jennifer, I’m sorry that picture confused you. The recipe says to mix the wings with all of the ingredients. It doesn’t matter which ingredient you put in first. I toss everything together in the same pan I’m baking the wings, so no need to dirty another dish. Just make sure it fits in your refrigerator, lol. If you prefer, you can mix ingredients in a bowl and then add wings to it. It really makes no difference. πŸ˜‰ Hope that helps. Feel free to let me know if you have more questions. Thanks for stopping by!

      Hi, Joanne! I’m afraid I can’t answer that question as I’ve never used an air fryer before. Have you checked the manual? It should tell you what you can and cannot use. If you find out, let me know please! Thanks for visiting!

    When our kids were little, Mahogany Chicken Wings was the recipe I brought to every potluck — now chicken wings are a RIDICULOUS price that I cannot afford often, but the recipe works for other cuts as well. If you’re interested in my recipe, visit my place & ask for it in the comments so I’ll know that you got the chance to stop by.
    I came to visit you from Happiness is Homemade bloghop.

    Yum! Yum!! I’m glad you did not throw her recipe and you attempted it! Turmeric is a killer ingredient (my fav spice!) and I am convinced that changed the entire taste. And now I know turmeric is called annato too? I love my mom’s chicken wings recipe and I’m still making them once in a while. Turmeric, cumin, lemon grass, fresh chillies are the key ingredients in there. The only thing is that those wings tasted better when fried vs baked.

      I haven’t cooked with lemon grass yet. Does it taste lemony? I mean I usually add lemon pepper and lemon juice to my chicken. I like my food well seasoned but don’t like it so spicy that I can’t taste the food. So, easy on the chilies. Another spice I love on my chicken is curry! Love, love, love it! Everything tastes better fried but it’s not healthy. When you get to be my age, you’ll be more conscious of how short life is, ha!
