Cutting and Baking Chicken Wings

— Written By

Hello, hello everyone! It’s Patti, the Family and Consumer Sciences Agent. We love a good chicken wing night in my house. I like to buy the pack at the store that is bone in chicken wings and cut them myself. This doesn’t save me a ton of money, but it does save me about a dollar per pound.

DISCLAIMER: I am not an expert at cutting chicken wings, I mess up often! They are still the best wings I have ever eaten though. I also eye ball all of my ingredients. Also, I am not a fan of hot wings, the Franks Sauce just really adds a little more flavor to the wings, you can always add more or none at all.
