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.


Serve with your favorite spread of finger foods!

  1. 5 stars
    This is my first time at "What's Gaby Cooking", so that means these wings were also a first for me. If I can be super blunt here, I was so dis-trusting of the accolades when I started to read. I was dubious about the recipe and dubious of Gaby. I thought I was being set up for some type of "Emperor with no clothes" scam...then I kept reading about the wings and feelings from the gut got me so curious about the bold claims. My initial "no way" thoughts morphed to "Maybe they are special/I hope they are special". At the very least, ultimately I did feel/trust Gaby's sincerity. Dinner last night was shockingly ummmazing, and absolutely/hands down the best wings I have ever tasted, let alone having ever made. And now I begin the adventure of discovering more recipes within this site. Thank you Gaby, so so much... I am a fan.

  2. If we have to buy the ones that are not separated and separate them ourselves how long do you suggest roasting them for? Thanks!

  3. These wings were Ahhhhhmazing!! Thank you so much for the recipe & inspiration for something outside of "buffalo" 😉

  4. I’m planning on making these ahead of time for our super bowl party today. Do you have a recommendation for transporting them so they don’t get soggy?? Can’t wait to try!

  5. Just bought the seasoning at William Sonoma!! Can’t wait to try them!! Every time I make your recipes I get rave reviews from my friends and I’m always sharing your recipes!

  6. Does it ruin things if you let this marinate overnight? Just trying to simplify bc I want to make a couple of your recipes. Thanks for these fun recipes!

  7. Just now came across this. I make a bad a##*" lemon pepper wing, bit THIS sounds so delicious, I'm just waiting for the market to open so I can get some fresh wings, that's probably going to be brunch for me today. Can't wait to make Gabys' recipe. Would love to find out how I can get the "Gabys' lemon pepper parmesan seasoning"

  8. Quick question. In the sauce ingredients you indicate 3T of olive oil, but in the directions it doesn’t say to add it with the better. Do you heat both? Thank you.

  9. I don’t have time to buy your lemon pepper Parmesan seasoning. I do have nutritional yeast, Parmesan and lemon pepper. Can I make something similar with what I have? Thx.

    1. yes - in my write up I say that you're welcome to use any of your fav lemon pepper blends! or totally make it yourself!
