3 oz is a common serving size for chicken wings. A typical wing weighs between 2 and 4 ounces, so the answer to this question depends on the size of the wings you’re eating.
If you’re not sure how many wings are in 3 ounces, there are several ways to find out. You can use a food scale, or measure by hand. If you use a food scale, weigh the wings on it first, then divide that number by 10 (or 100) to get the weight per ounce. If you use your hands, grab a few pieces of chicken and compare them with one another. This allows you to see how much bigger or smaller they are than one another, which will help determine how many ounces there are in 3 ounces of chicken wings.
Here’s another way to think about it: if your hand spans an inch from thumb tip to pinky tip (for most people), then 1 cup equals 4 ounces of chicken meat or poultry when cooked without skin.*
