What is it with Chicken Wings??

Wildly popular I know and often sought after at WDW.

But they have so little meat that I need about 50 of them just to make a meal

Plus they are a lot of work to eat and very messy.

Boneless "wings"?? Pretty good. At least there is meat

So am I the only person not fascinated with Chicken Wings????

Here too.

I see all the time ads for 10 wings, 20 wings, a whole bucket of wings, a tractor trailer load of wings. Even FREE wings if you buy enough beer!!

But what is it you like about them??

yes me too. im from Canada and pizza & wings are definitely a staple here too. My DS12 and I love them!

Believe it or not the wings at scifi is pretty darn good. I was quite surprised. I love both regular and boneless wings too. But I prefer bone-in.

I cant tell you why i like them. They're just so good!

I know! They are so messy, I usually only eat them at home. and it seems like I end up with more on the plate AFTER I eat them than when I started. They are tasty, but I could eat strips or bigger pieces of chicken flavored the same way and be happy. I don't get why they cost so much. You're getting a super deal if it's 50 cents a pc. That being said, my friend in FL says the wings at Publix are delicious and I plan to try them on my next visit in January. No Publix in CA.

Its hard to say what about them. I know if i get an order i have to have them extra crispy. Sometimes i do get boneless bites which are good as well. I honestly believe its the sauce that matters. I do know several people who do eat 30 at a time, which i why i think "wing night" is so popular. I think it might be like anything else that you eat, you were brought up on it so its just what you know.

Extra crispy is a must! so yummy. That's why the wings at ohana made me gag. Super slimy. so gross.

Most of--if not all of--the boneless "wings" I see aren't "wing meat" at all. But white chicken meat.


With the exact same sauces as with actual wings, those are pretty good---

I don't get wings either.

I am amazed by the success of the Buffalo Wild Wings chain. I commented to DH that they are marketing geniuses, they figured out how to make millions selling the garbage parts of the chicken that nobody wants!

We get wings from a local restaurant and like that they can be many different flavors that "big" chicken isn't. When we take-out, we all order different. I tried boneless wings once and noticed they were not, in fact, wings at all. Never again.

Technically, there are much worse parts of a chicken that I don't want to know where they end up! Necks, gizzards, butts. At least the wings can be made flavorful !

Ummm, if nobody wants the wings then why are they so popular and expensive?

of course boneless wings are not from the actual wing. they're chicken breast, breaded and smothered in wing sauce. so yummy.

Do you know why they are called "boneless wings"? I know they are boneless, not why they are called wings. I don't care for white meat from a chicken, so I was disappointed.

I think it's just another way to say chicken finger or chicken nugget which is basically what a boneless wing is, breaded and fried chicken breast.
