Print Friendly and PDF

3 lb chicken wings
48 oz vegetable oil or enough to fill skillet 2-4 inches deep
1 tsp salt
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup butter melted
1 1/2 tsp lemon pepper seasoning
2 tbsp fresh parsley chopped
lemon wedges for garnish (optional)

Pat chicken wings dry with paper towels. Line a large plate or bowl with a few paper towels. Set both nearby.

In a large skillet, heat 2-3 inches of oil to 350 degrees F (using a candy thermometer helps!)

While oil heats, place flour and salt in a large Ziploc bag. Gently shake bag to mix ingredients.

Add prepared chicken wings to Ziploc bag. Seal bag, then shake to thoroughly coat chicken.

Working in batches of 5-7, drop coated chicken wings in heated oil. Fry for 10-12 minutes, turning halfway through. Wings are done when they are a deep golden brown. Once cooked, place chicken wings on prepared paper towel lined plate. Repeat this step until all wings are cooked.

In a small mixing bowl, mix together melted butter and lemon pepper seasoning. Use a basting brush to coat both sides of the fried chicken wings with buttery lemon pepper.

Serve lemon pepper chicken wings immediately with fresh parsley and lemon wedges as garnish (optional).
