1. Chicken wings recipes; nutritional value

The chicken wing is one of the smallest parts of poultry; it is very bony and therefore has little meat. It is also a lump rich in fat and skin. However, these characteristics also make it a tasty piece with nice crispiness when you roast the chicken. A chicken wing contains about 5 g of protein for 4.5 g of fat. In all, that only makes 64 calories. But beware, this caloric intake can increase significantly if the chicken wing is coated in breadcrumbs and fried, as is the case in some fast food outlets.

Cooking temp for chicken wings

We all know that we can bake or grill the chicken wings; however, the standard way of cooking chicken wings is deep frying. The standard cooking temp for chicken wings in deep-fried oil is 375° F. At this temperature, the skin is overcooked, while the inside meat is normally done at 165° F. Thus, it is better to fry the chicken wings at a lower temperature at 350° F to allow the doneness of the meat without overcooking the skin.
