  • Lemon pepper chicken wings are also great to prepare when you are cooking on a budget but still like to entertain and are hosting a party where you need to feed many people, for instance.

I love cooking with the use of lemons or limes, depending on which is on sale at the supermarket. The tart flavoring on meat or fish is very enjoyable. I do not typically use bottled lemon juices but rather slice the fresh fruit.

  • On a good day, a lemon can be purchased at the market for 69 cents or less.
  • On a really good day, the raw meat that you will need for this chicken recipe can be purchased for less than $2 per pound.

1. Wash and slice two lemons (or limes) in rings. Set aside.

3. Open a 2 pound package of fresh or thawed chicken wingettes. Rinse the wingettes thoroughly in a large bowl of water with a tablespoon of vinegar. Pour water out of bowl.

4. To the chicken in bowl, add dashes (one teaspoon or less) of each of the following spices:

black pepper

cayenne pepper






5. Mix the spices well in the bowl, ensuring that the chicken is fully coated.

6. Line a square or rectangle baking pan with foil and coat the foil, spreading a tablespoon of olive oil on it.

7. Arrange the chicken wingettes in the pan in one layer for even cooking.

8. Place the pan in the preheated oven and allow to bake for 30 minutes.

9. Remove the pan from the oven. Flip the wingettes over. Arrange the lemon slices on top of the wingettes and place the pan back in the oven for ten additional minutes, reducing heat to 375F.
