For the Marinade
  • 1 Tbs Salt
  • ½ Tbs Sugar
  • ½ Tbs Lemon Pepper
  • 1 Tbs Garlic powder
  • 2 Lemons, zest only, finely grated
  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • 24 Chicken wings
  • 4-5 Large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 300g All-purpose flour
  • Oil for frying
To marinade the wings
  1. Combine all of the marinade ingredients in a jug and mix until totally combined and the salt and sugar have dissolved.
  2. Cut the tips off of the chicken wings and discard. Cut through the center joint of each wing.
  3. Place the wings in a large tray and pout the marinade ingredients over the wings. Using your hands, massage the marinade into the wings thoroughly.
  4. Allow the wings to marinate in your refrigerator for at least 8 hours - 18 to 24 hours is preferable.
To coat the wings
  1. Working with a few wings at a time, dredge the wings in the flour, then dip them in the egg.
  2. Dredge the wings in the flour a second time, place them on a large flat platter and allow the coating to set for 20 minutes.
To deep-fry
  1. Half fill your pan with oil. Heat the oil to 180c / 350f and deepfry the wings for 5 minutes per side. Remove the wings from the pan and drain on kitchen paper. Keep these warm while you continue with the remaining batches of wings.
