How to Easily Bake Lemon Pepper Wings

Culinary references commonly cite the Anchor Bar in Buffalo, N.Y., as the birthplace of chicken wings as a bar snack. Original-style Buffalo wings are deep-fried and coated in a mixture of hot pepper sauce and butter, but over the years, inventive chefs and fast-food chicken wing franchises have deployed dozens of flavor variations. Cooks at one chicken wing retailer deep-fry its popular lemon-pepper chicken wings before tossing them in a flavored sauce. You can enjoy a similar lemon pepper treat at home by using your oven -- no deep fryer required.
