The answer to how many ounces are in a chicken wing depends on the size of the wing (and therefore how much meat it has) and whether you’re talking about a portion or an individual wing.
A typical portion of chicken wings weighs between 1.5 and 2 oz (43 g). So if you want to know how many ounces are in a chicken wing, just multiply the number of wings by 1.5 to 2 oz (43 g). For example, 16 wings would weigh 24 oz (680 g).
However, that’s only if they’re whole wings — which they often aren’t. A lot of restaurants sell their wings cut into strips and/or drumettes and flats. If you order these parts separately, then obviously the amount of meat will change because you’re getting less bone with each part than you would with a whole wing (which has both bones).
So let’s say we have 10 wings from above that have been cut into strips and drumettes only; this means there are no flats left. The average weight of each strip is 0.7 oz (20 g), so there are 7 strips per pound of raw meat (0.6 kg). The average weight of each drumette is also 0.7 oz (20 g).
