1/2 pound of chicken, 4 to 6 pieces.
1 pound of chicken, 7-12 pieces.
Also, are chicken wings really wings?
The size of the wings hasn't changed much, but the breasts are so heavy the birds can't fly well. (Incidentally, this is also why chicken breast meat is white—in wild and game birds, the breast meat is dark, because those muscles actually get exercise.) So no, the chicken wings we eat come from adult chickens.
What is a traditional wing?
There are hot wings, and then there are Buffalo wings. Buffalo, New York, is the home of the hot wing, and unlike other wings, these prized poultry parts are never battered or breaded. Instead, Buffalo wings are fried naked and then tossed with a simple combination of hot sauce, butter, and vinegar.
