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.

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

Step 2

Rinse the chicken wings in cold water and drain them on paper towels.

Step 3

Dip the chicken wings in butter or olive oil, shake off the excess and then coat them in lemon pepper seasoning.

Step 4

Arrange the wings in a single layer on a foil-lined baking sheet.

Step 5

Bake the wings for 30 minutes or until crispy. For extra-crispy wings, finish them for a few minutes under the broiler.

Step 6

Serve the wings with ranch dressing or other dipping sauce of your choice.
