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

By Chad Upton | Editor

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.

How to Take the Bone Out of a Chicken Wing

By Chad Upton | Editor

When we want to know how to do things right, we look to the professionals.

For example, if you want to peel a banana easily and with minimal strings, you’d learn how a monkey does it.

The same goes for eating chicken wings. There are plenty of professional food eaters, who win contests by eating food as quickly as possible. Some of these techniques were developed by them.

Here’s one great way to get the bones out of a wing:

Here’s a way to eat it with one hand, keeping your other hand free for your 6 shooter, beer mug or tums. You can skip to the 20 second mark on this one:

For those reading this on a device that doesn’t support video, the first video demonstrates removing the bones from a flat chicken wing. Grab the smaller bone and twist it back and forth a couple times, then pull it out. Then do the same for the larger bone, you’re left with all meat and no bones. The second video shows a man placing an entire flat wing in his mouth, biting down and pulling the chicken off the bones and he pulls it out of his mouth.

Thanks to Janine for suggesting this one.
