  • Completely dry the chicken wings with paper towels before seasoning.
  • When baking or air frying, avoid crowding the pan. Cook the lemon pepper chicken wings in batches if necessary.
  • If your lemon pepper seasoning contains salt, use garlic powder instead of garlic salt to avoid oversalting the chicken.
  • Season the wings before cooking for all methods except deep frying. In that case, season after they are cooked and before serving.
  • Always check for doneness with a meat thermometer. The temperature should be 165 F/ 75 C when inserted into the thickest part of chicken breasts.
