  • 2 lbs chicken wings
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tbsp lemon pepper seasoning
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley (optional)


  1. Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and place a wire rack on top.
  2. Prepare Wings: In a large bowl, toss the chicken wings with olive oil, salt, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and smoked paprika until evenly coated.
  3. Bake Wings: Arrange the wings in a single layer on the wire rack. Bake for 40-45 minutes, flipping halfway through, until the wings are golden brown and crispy.
  4. Make Sauce: While the wings are baking, prepare the sauce. In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine honey, lemon juice, and butter. Stir until the butter is melted and the sauce is well combined. Remove from heat and set aside.
  5. Coat Wings: Once the wings are done baking, transfer them to a large bowl. Pour the lemon pepper seasoning over the wings and toss to coat evenly. Drizzle the honey lemon sauce over the wings and toss again until well coated.
  6. Serve: Transfer the wings to a serving platter, sprinkle with fresh parsley if desired, and serve immediately. Enjoy your crispy lemon pepper honey wings!

These wings are sure to be a hit with their perfect balance of crispiness, tanginess, and sweetness.
