It’s Lemon Pepper Chicken Wings today – whoopee!
If you don’t already know by now, I love, love, love chicken wings. You can give them to me almost any way and I will appreciate them. Chicken wings are my go to bar snack whilst sipping a cocktail; my at home on a Saturday afternoon snack when watching a movie or two; and my late night snack, on those nights when I plan on indulging in a late morning/early afternoon sleep in.
I like this Lemon Pepper Chicken Wings recipe. This is a no fuss recipe, no frying or coating in flour required. It’s just the wings and a marvelous coating of flavors.
Aside from the wings, the most important ingredients are of course lemon juice, black pepper and white pepper. I often have rainbow peppers in my pantry and they would be great for this recipe too, but make sure to add a touch of white of pepper if you want a little peppery heat to your wings. Onion granules, salt and a touch of curry powder are added to create a base of flavor and wholegrain mustard heightens the acidic element and complements the lemon.
I imagine everyone furrowing their brows at the thought of curry powder in Lemon Pepper Chicken Wings, but trust me, a touch of curry powder with chicken is always great when cooking with lemon, herbs and other spices. Canola oil is a very important ingredient also and is added to the mix to help get that crispy exterior at first bite.
These Lemon Pepper Chicken Wings are truly divine. This recipe feeds two, but you can double up on quantities for four. However, you should do a taste test to make sure you have the right balance of flavors.
