*Copycat* Lemon Pepper Wings

I am excited to share this surprisingly EASY Copycat Wing recipe with you – just perfect for football season!

Three ingredients plus 2 pounds of wings & 35-45 minutes in your oven is all it takes to make a batch of lemon pepper wings that rivals Wing Stop. Trust me – I know exactly just how delicious those wings are. This recipe nailed it!

You will be surprised when I tell you that NO deep fryer is involved ((“well hello, healthy”)).

That’s right, these wings are oven-fried and still so crispy and delicious, with just the right amount of lemony zip.

The key to a crispy oven-fried wing is the simple addition of cornstarch.  Just a few tablespoons added to your favorite seasoning blend and these wings will rival their deep-fried cousins. All that is left is to toss the wings to coat, place them on a baking rack, brush each wing lightly with oil and bake at 425°.

Another simple, tasty meal perfect for a busy night or a game day snack!
