The Secret Ingredient: Fruit Beer

Yes, you read that right. These chicken wings are cooked with fruit beer. But don’t worry, the beer won’t overpower the flavor of the wings. Instead, it adds a subtle sweetness that perfectly complements the tangy lemon-pepper seasoning.

Low and Slow Cooking

The key to making these wings truly spectacular is low and slow cooking. This means cooking them at a low temperature for a longer period of time. This allows the meat to become incredibly tender and flavorful, while also allowing time for the lemon-beer marinade to seep into the meat.

The Recipe

Ready to make these amazing chicken wings for your next party? Here’s what you’ll need:

– 2 pounds of chicken wings
– 1 cup of fruit beer (we recommend using a lemon-flavored fruit beer)
– 1/2 cup of lemon juice
– 1/4 cup of olive oil
– 2 tablespoons of lemon zest
– 1 tablespoon of black pepper

1. In a large bowl, mix together the fruit beer, lemon juice, olive oil, lemon zest, black pepper, garlic powder, and salt.

2. Add the chicken wings to the bowl, making sure that each wing is fully coated in the marinade.

3. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, but preferably overnight.

4. Preheat your oven to 250 degrees Fahrenheit.

5. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place the chicken wings on the sheet.

6. Bake the chicken wings in the oven for 2 hours, or until they’re cooked through and tender.

7. Increase the oven temperature to 450 degrees Fahrenheit and bake the chicken wings for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until they’re crispy and golden brown.

8. Serve the chicken wings hot and enjoy!
