Kentucky Bucket Wings

I love chicken wings, and whenever I go on a low carb kick, they seem to be my go-to food of choice. Well, at least at the top of the list. The other day I had a hankering for some KFC, but minus the MSG, so I looked up some copycat recipes online, tinkered a little bit, and came up with this lovely buttermilk chicken wing recipe. The white pepper seems to be the secret for these to be super tasty, so, add to your heart's content!
