The Perfect Honey Lemon Sauce

The honey lemon sauce is the key item of the dish. The sweet and Savoury taste of lemon and honey differentiates the dish from an ordinary fried chicken.

To achieve the perfect taste of the sauce, always make it with fresh lemons. Only use bottled juice when you cannot get fresh lemons.

To maintain the dish’s identity, make sure you follow all the instructions. Because if you miss any step, your wings will taste like simple fried chicken.

Tips for Crispy Wings

Nobody likes the soggy chicken wings. Therefore, I have brought you some tips that will double the fun of your wings and make them crispy.

Deep fried chicken wings

Removing the moisture from the chicken’s skin is the key to crispy wings. To dry your chicken thoroughly, follow these instructions: 

  • Use a paper towel to bloat any unnecessary moisture in the chicken. 
  • Press wings firmly to remove the leftover water. 
  • Use baking powder if the chicken still has moisture in it. 

To maintain the crispiness of the chicken after frying, you should set it on a cooling rack over a baking sheet. Place them in a low oven to keep them warm.

Serving and Presentation Ideas

Lemon honey wings are a complete dish in itself. However, if you add more flavors, I recommend you pair it with a barbeque sauce or a garlic parmesan sauce.

Personally, I like Greek yoghurt ranch. It surely gives it a punch of extra flavor.

However, you can select any of them as per your taste.

Suppose you include it to your menu for a small gathering, housewarming or small get-together of friends. In that case, you should make mashed potatoes alongside it.

This is my personal experience that mashed potatoes with honey lemon chicken wings is the most liked combo for guests.

You can also serve it with veggies like corn, zucchini fritters or slices of carrots.


So, now, you have learnt how to achieve the perfect flavor of honey lemon chicken wings.

Try it, and don’t forget to share the recipe with your friends.

I hope you all love it as much as I like it. Happy cooking!
