Sharing is caring!

Weeknights are for easy yet delicious meals. With the price of chicken wings significantly higher during this pandemic, I decided to share a lemon pepper recipe that does not involve chicken wings , yet is still full of flavor.

This recipe combines chicken thighs (you can use legs if you don’t have thighs) , lemon pepper seasoning and is baked to perfection.

As always if you make this , please let me know how it comes out for you !
