    Definitely one of my go-to recipes. Super easy once you do it a couple times and it always comes out form tender and delicious! One of my all time favorites!

    Amazing! I had to compromise due to the lack of proper pots. I conducted the gravy in my cast iron and poured it in my baking pan. Turned out perfect!

    I’ve made turkey wings multiple times, but this is by far my favorite recipe! The flavors go very well together. I didn’t use the exact measurements because I knew I wouldn’t need as much, so tasting my food as I went was key. Ultimately, this recipe is solid! I added fresh red bell peppers with my onions & paired the wings with fried cabbage. Will definitely make again!

    Turned out great. The recipe was easy to follow and adaptable I did change up the seasoning but overall I will be using this method again

    Great recipe. Made these to take to my family's Thanksgiving dinner. A cousin announced we should skip the turkey and save it for sandwhiches later, but everyone should just eat the Turkey Wings instead! Also the gravy/sauce is excellent to mix into your stuffing/dressing. It makes it next level.

    Made these for dinner for my girlfriend and she liked them. There was a lot of gravy left. Made yellow rice and braised spinach to go with it. I would definite make it again.

    Turned out great!....was fearful of the lemon .. used lemon pepper probably different effect but still delicious.. lid off to achieve a more browned and thickened product. It worked well.
