Pizza Hut Lemon Pepper Wings Ingredients
- 3 pounds of chicken wings, on the smaller side
- Enough vegetable oil to deep fry
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1/4 cup lemon juice, freshly squeezed
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1 1/2 tablespoons ground peppercorns
- Salt to taste
Pizza Hut Lemon Pepper Wings Recipe
- Prep the chicken by trimming off the tips, and then cutting at the joint to split each wing into two pieces.
- Salt and pepper the chicken wings to season.
- Fill the deep fryer with enough vegetable oil to fully cover the chicken wings.
- Heat the oil in the deep fryer until it reaches 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
- While the oil is heating, start the lemon pepper sauce by melting the butter in a small saucepan or microwave.
- Add the honey, lemon juice and ground peppercorns to the melted butter.
- Fry the wings in small batches. It may take ten minutes or so for the wings to fully cook and get crispy on the outside.
- When the wings are done in the fryer, set on paper towels to drain off the extra grease.
- Place the wings into a large bowl.
- Pour the sauce over the wings, and use a wooden spoon to stir until evenly coated.
Wingstop Lemon Pepper Wings
- For extra lemon flavor, grate the zest from your lemon and add it to the melted butter mixture.
- For herbed lemon pepper wings, add some dried thyme to the melted butter sauce.
- If you like your wings extra crispy, leave them in the deep fryer for an extra minute or two.
