Author Notes

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. —Jas

What You'll Need
  • 1 dozen chicken wings
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried 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 one small lemon
  1. Cut apart chicken wings at the joint. Toss and marinate the wings with all other ingredients for at least 1 hour in the refrigerator.
  2. 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.
