  • Chicken Wing Flats
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • Zest and juice of one lemon
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper (adjust to taste)


  1. Prepare the Chicken:
  • Pat dry the chicken wing flats with paper towels to remove excess moisture.
  • In a bowl, combine flour, garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, salt, and pepper.
  • Coat each wing flat in the seasoned flour mixture, ensuring an even coating.
  1. Frying the Wings:
  • Heat vegetable oil in a deep fryer or a large, deep skillet to 375°F (190°C).
  • Carefully add the coated wing flats in batches, frying until golden brown and crispy, about 8-10 minutes.
  • Use a slotted spoon to remove the wings, placing them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil.
  1. Prepare the Honey Lemon Pepper Drizzle:
  • In a small saucepan, warm honey over low heat.
  • Add lemon zest, lemon juice, and black pepper, stirring until well combined.
  • Adjust the pepper to your preferred level of spiciness.
  1. Drizzle and Toss:
  • Place the fried wing flats in a large bowl.
  • Pour the honey lemon pepper drizzle over the wings, tossing them to ensure even coating.


  • For extra crispiness, double coat the wings by dipping them back into the flour mixture after the first coat.
  • Ensure the oil is hot enough to achieve a crispy texture without absorbing excess oil.


Q: Can I bake the wings instead of frying?
A: While frying achieves optimal crispiness, you can bake the wings in a preheated oven at 400°F (200°C) for approximately 45-50 minutes, turning them halfway through.

Q: Can I use chicken drumettes instead of wing flats?
A: Absolutely! Adjust cooking times accordingly, as drumettes may require a bit more time.

How to Store:

  • Store any leftover wings in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

How to Freeze:

  • Allow the wings to cool completely before placing them in a freezer-safe container or resealable bag. They can be frozen for up to 2 months. Reheat in the oven for best results.
