Add 1/4 cup kosher salt and mix. I like to add a little pink pepper for the color. You can also reduce the number of ingredients by 2 times. Keep this seasoning in an airtight container or in a special jar for spices.

Baking Tips For LEMON PEPPER WINGS
1- When cooking, use a pyrometer to check the temperature of the oil. It should be in the range of 330-350 degrees F.
If the temperature is higher, the chicken wings on the outside will start to burn. While the inside will still be raw. If the temperature is lower, the product will cook longer and absorb excess oil. As a result, you will get very fatty foods.
2- If you do not have a pyrometer, dip a wooden spatula into the hot oil. The spatula will bubble if the temperature is right. That means that the oil is boiling and you can start.
3- Do not use plastic appliances when deep-fried!
