Lemon Pepper Wings
Wings are a guilty pleasure. They are so delicious and the perfect game-watching snack. However, they can get pretty expensive if you are ordering for a crowd. While I was in the grocery store, I noticed that the chicken wingettes were fairly inexpensive $3-4 for 12 in my local store. I was shocked. I immediately grabbed four packages and decided this was going to be at our next Dallas Cowboy watching party. Of course, I had no idea what to do with them. My master marinade-making husband created this delicious lemon pepper seasoning. The acidity from the fresh lemons was perfect and we will not be ordering wings again, just creating more delicious sauces. Another bonus, they were ready in fifteen minutes, pick-up is never that quick. It really is a win-win situation.

Lemon Juice from 2 Lemons
1/2 teaspoon of Black Pepper, freshly ground
1 teaspoon of Lemon Pepper Seasoning
Vegetable Oil for frying
Salt and Pepper
First, prepare your wings, liberally coat them with salt and pepper.
Next, you can either shallow fry these or use a deep-fryer. Heat your oil to 375 degrees.
Drop the wings in and fry for 10 minutes.
While your wings are frying, make your sauce. In a small saucepan, combine the lemon juice and butter. Heat until melted together.
When the wings are done, immediately place them in the bowl with the lemon juice and butter, sprinkle the black pepper and lemon pepper seasoning on top and toss the wings.
Serve immediately with ranch or blue cheese dressing.
