Lemon pepper chicken wings

Print this recipe
Breaded chicken wings are super simple to make at home. All you need to do is create a seasoned flour, dredge your chicken wings, and fry 'em up until they're golden brown. You don't even need a deep fryer - you can fry these in a large stockpot filled with oil. The recipe below takes breaded chicken to the next level by adding lemon and pepper into the mix. Lemon and pepper are classic flavors to add to chicken, bringing out a deep acidity and a light spiciness in the chicken's dark meat.
I love using Old Bay in this recipe because it means that I don't have to add any extra salt. They also add a classic Southern flavor to the wings, which complements the lemon-pepper very well. When these chicken wings fry up, they transform into crispy bites. They're the perfect recipe to serve at a party!

2 pounds chicken wings
1 lemon, juiced
2 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
1 1/2 cups AP flour
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Vegetable oil (for deep frying)
In a large bowl, combine the chicken wings with the lemon juice and the Old Bay seasoning. Using your hands, toss until the wings are well coated.
In a separate bowl, combine the AP flour with the garlic powder, onion powder, and black pepper.
Add the chicken wings to the flour, turning them until they are well coated in the flour.
In a large stockpot, add enough vegetable oil to cover the chicken wings. Heat the oil until it reaches a temperature of 350 degrees F.
Once the oil is hot, add the chicken wings and fry until they're golden brown, about 10 minutes.
Place the chicken on a paper-towel-lined baking sheet until all the wings are cooked.
Serve immediately.
