Not sure how many chicken wings to make or buy as appetizers for your next get together? This calculator helps you determine both number of wings to buy (if you're ordering out) or how many pounds of wings to buy (if you're making them yourself). It also breaks it down to whole wings or wing pieces (buffalo wings).
Just to be clear...we're talking appetizers; not a meal. Appetizer definition => "A small dish of food or a drink taken before a meal or the main course of a meal to stimulate one's appetite."
You will need approximately 3 ounces of chicken meat per person as a side or appetizer and 6 ounces of chicken meat when served as the main appetizer. If the average fried chicken wing weighs 3 ounces and yields one ounce of meat (if served as the main appetizer) you would need 18 ounces of chicken wings (or 6 whole wings) in order to yield 6 ounces of chicken meat per person. Sound confusing? Just let the Chicken Wing Calculator figure it out for you.
And don't forget our "Beer" or "Keg" calculators if you will also be serving beer.
