I don't think I ever get tired of trying new chicken wing dishes. I made a collection of 18 low carb recipes – check them out!!!! This recipe is absolutely perfect for an appetizer or party, but you may want to increase the quantity depending on the number of guests. I've used 8 wings here (16 sections) which is about 1.75lb. Quite frankly, they taste so good I can eat them all by myself for lunch and at 0.4g net carbs for the whole recipe I make no excuses! So this recipe is highly recommended, although you may not like how many wings other people will want to eat… 🙂

How to Make Lemon Pepper Wings

Prepare the wings by cutting off the tips and splitting the other two sections in half with a sharp pair of poultry shears or a knife. Place them on a baking tray lined with foil or a silicone mat and spray with olive oil spray.

Bake the wings in a preheated oven for 30-40 minutes until cooked through. Meanwhile, prepare the sauce by melting butter in a small bowl in the microwave. Grate over some lemon zest using a zester (like this Microplane one).Lemon Pepper Chicken Wings - zero carb appetizer or party food

Stir in onion powder, salt and lots of black pepper. When the chicken wings are cooked and golden brown, brush the sauce over the top of each one. (And don't worry about that silicone mat – I rinse it and put it in the dishwasher and it comes out perfectly clean!)

Serve the lemon pepper wings with extra black pepper – if you think they need it!Lemon Pepper Chicken Wings - zero carb appetizer or party food
