  • 2 chicken wing


  • Cut The Wing Tip Off
    This is really simple. Hold the wing tip away from the wingette of the chicken wing. follow the shape down into the joint.
    You will be able to feel in there a knuckle of sorts. This is where the bones pivot so that the wing can move at this joint.
    Lay the wing flat on the cutting board and slice into this joint with a sharp chef knife.
  • Separate Drumette From The Wingette/Flat
     I like to cut into the skin that is in between the two parts, this gives a bit of skin to both the wingette and the drum.
    Go ahead and lay flat on the cutting board and with your chef knife slice through that joint.
