WOW WOW WOW as Poppy would say. These Lemon Pepper Parmesan Wings are next level amazing. Truly the most perfect wings to date. Lemon Pepper seasoning, and extra sauce that gets topped once the wings are crispy, and then some extra lemon and salt to bring it all together... HOLD THE PHONE THESE WILL WIN ANY GAME DAY PARTY.

I'm not even exaggerating when I tell you that when we shot these at the studio last week, all 5 of us sat around the table and ate them one by one, in silence, licking our fingers, until they were gone.

Your welcome to use your favorite blend - but this Lemon Pepper Seasoning is my favorite!! Other than that, you don't need anything fancy to make these. Just make sure you buy the wings that are already separated. As in the drumette and the wingette are separated from each other. That way you'll get the crispiest wings and don't have to worry about roasting them a little longer.

These bake at 425 degrees until done and then get coated with a butter mixture that will have you licking your fingers for hours. I promise, you'll be obsessed. Add them to your Game Menu round up and thank me later!

For the Wings:

For the Sauce:

  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 6 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 lemon zested and juiced plus more for serving
  • ¾ cup freshly grated parmesan cheese plus more for garnish
  • Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper to taste


  • Preheat the oven to 425 F. Pat dry wings and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Drizzle with olive oil and season with the Dalkin&Co Lemon Pepper Seasoning on both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper. Toss to combine.
  • Bake for 45-50 minutes, flipping halfway through and adding extra seasoning if needed.
  • Just before the wings are done, make the sauce by melting the butter in a small saucepan on low heat. Add the olive oil, garlic, lemon zest and juice and parmesan cheese. Once fragrant, remove from heat and toss onto cooked wings.
  • Drizzle the sauce once the wings are out of the oven. Toss the wings so they’re all coated. Sprinkle some more Dalkin&Co Lemon Pepper Seasoning on top along with more parmesan cheese, fresh lemon juice and salt to taste.

  1. These look so delicous. ...I will make them for superbowl! Any suggestions for what else to serve with them? It will be 4 of us. Thank you!!

  2. Hi Gaby! My husband is wanting to use our smoker for the wings; should I still apply the seasoning before smoking, or wait until they are cooked?

    1. I have the same question. Would love to know any modifications for smoking rather than roasting.
      Thanks in advance!

  3. You are absolutely right that these are the best wings. I never make wings at home and tried these since your recipes are always a win. These were no exception - I halved the recipe but wished I didn’t!!

  4. Hey Gaby! Excited to try this recipe. I’m planning to use chicken drumsticks instead of wings. Would you suggest I increase the cook time? By about how much?

    1. best bet would be to use a meat thermometer to ensure they are cooked! Temp will stay the same but time will increase for sure

    Literally the best wings. So easy you may feel like you’re missing a step. You’re not. Made these for the Super Bowl last year and now they are on my rotation when I have friends over. Soooooooo good!!

  6. Hi Gaby! I made these for Super Bowl, and they were delicious. If I want to double the recipe, would you recommend cooking to sheets in the oven at the same time, or would you recommend me bake two separate batches?

    Gaby, I have made these wings about a half of a dozen times…. I can not and will not eat another wing. Neither will my family. We LOVE these. I have found the perfect ratio for baking them too. The last 10-12 minutes I also convection bake them. Crispy on the outside, juicy on the inside. Your seasoning blend is stocked in my house I have 2-4 containers at all times. Thank you SO much for this recipe. It’s a favorite for sure!

  8. HI there - is that 2-3 dozen whole wings or 2-3 dozen drum and flat pieces? Or do you have an estimate of the weight of wings to purchase? Thanks!

    My husband is die hard buffalo wing guy. He’s never liked any other. EXCEPT THESE!!! He said that these are his absolute favorite. I made them several times for different people and everyone loves them. Never any leftovers. I had to buy 2 more tins of seasoning!

  10. 5 stars
    I’m from Buffalo, and have had wings at countless restaurants, as well as homemade. My sister in law made these, and I have to say, hands down, they are the BEST wings that I have EVER had!!
    Awesome job with the recipe

    Made these for a super bowl party and they super crispy without feeling heavy, flavorful and were a big hit. They went so quickly my partner only got to eat one and asked me to make them again, so we had them for dinner with salad later the same week. It was a perfect meal.
