Non-Wing Chicken “Wings” are Called “Wyngz”

Boneless chicken “wings” are not made from wing meat at all. They’re generally large piece of chicken breasts or thighs that are cut or shaped to look like chicken wings.

Legally, they can only be called “wings” if they are actually made from wing meat. But, the United States Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service has an alternative name that can be used, “Wyngz.”

Using “Wyngz” has some specific rules:

  1. No other misspellings are allowed.
  2. The product label must be submitted for approval.
  3. White meat must be used.
  4. The Wyngz* term must be prominent.
  5. An asterisk must link to a statement that indicates the product is not made entirely from wing meat.
