I am of the flavor to prefer Bone-in to Boneless when it comes to taste. To me, the seasoning melds much better with the chicken than it does with the batter on boneless. Though I don't discriminate. I loves me some boneless. Especially at events when I need to stay respectable. I mean look at Greggy eat them wings on the E3 show. that is %100 what happens when eating bone-in. let's all just enjoy the chicken we ordered and play windjammers. bring your own controller.
@fox01313: Actually, I think that Wild Wings does a shitty job with bone-in. They're very scrawny wings and I've had them freezer burned more than once. Boneless is the better option there.
But assuming you're eating at a *decent* bar, team bone for me. I like to see the remains of those I have conquered discarded before me.
I got boneless wings from a local joint that makes great bar/restaurant food to take home the other day. First time in a while. I wanted convenience, and I regretted it. I wish I got wings instead.
I've had really great wings. I've never had really great boneless wings.
(I totally was going to respond to someone from a year ago until I realized it wasn't a new wings/wyngz thread. "I CONCUR GUY FROM 17 MONTHS AGO, LOLOLOLOLOLOL.")
Everybody knows that restaurant wings (which are typically boneless) are total fucking bullshit. So are the type you might buy in the freezer section. Fuck! That! The only way to have wings is to make your own. Buy fucking chicken wings, cut that shit at the joint, make some dope ass sauce, fry those fuckers, douse em', eat em', and wash it all down with a few beers. Any other wings are for fucking commies.
So, if I take a chicken mcnugget and dump sauce on it, does it magically become a "boneless chicken wing"?
No. It's a chicken mcnugget with sauce on it. Just like your boneless "wings".
You know who eats boneless chicken wings? People who use ketchup and people who eat their steaks well done with A1 on top.
There is no wrong answer here.
I was wrong.
Wings are things with the bones in them. And they're awesome. No bones? Then it ain't wings. But since it's chicken it is also awesome. Which is what I meant at the time. Both are awesome but only one of them are actually wings.
The fact that people are ok with the term "boneless wings" just makes me sad. Sure, you might think they're better, but come on... It's just fried chicken, fried chicken strips. And no, they're not chicken nuggets.
But then again, this comes from the same country that calls burgers sandwiches and pizzas pies.
