How To Cut Chicken Wings
I often buy flats of chicken wings from my grocery store because they are much more affordable – and often more fresh!
Cutting your own chicken wings saves a ton of money, so I try to always trim my own chicken wings whenever I can. For this recipe, you can use the whole wing intact – but I find the texture is the best when I cut them.
Cutting chicken wings down to pieces makes them easier to eat, and also helps get a super crispy texture!
To cut chicken wings into thirds – flat, drumette, and tip of the wing – follow the instructions below:
-Using a sharp large chefs knife, feel for the joints between the 3 main parts to a chicken wing – the wing tip, the flats, and the drumette.
-Bend the joints backwards, using your hands, to get them to loosen.
-Use your knife to feel where the bones come together, and pressing down hard, cut through the joint. (You don’t want to try to cut the bone – but find the space in between the bones.)
-While you can cook wing tips, they often dont have much (if any) meat to them. Discard any that don’t look to offer you much meat.
