What’s the Weight of a Chicken Wing?

A chicken wing weighs about 3 ounces (89 grammes) when it’s uncooked. A chicken wing contains around 1 ounce, or 30 grammes, of lean flesh. The wing’s skin weighs 26 grammes, or just under an ounce.

One raw wing makes about 13% of the total meat yield of a bird. The tip, midsection, and drumette are the three separate parts of a wing, which is made of white meat. The region between the shoulder and elbow is known as the drumette.

One big boneless chicken wing contains about 124 calories when consumed, of which 75 are from fat. The average amount of fat per wing is 8.3 grammes, or 0.3 ounce.
