They Moved the Wings?

I saw a commercial a little while ago for Kentucky Fried Chicken's boneless chicken wings. So far so OK. Until, that is, it said they used all white-meat chicken breast to make their boneless chicken wings.

Did I lose my place?

    I was stuck in the elevator at the Best Western, Black Rock in Fiarfield, Connecticut with a family that had, by actual count, TWO buckets of KFC ... It was nauseating.

    Irony: The hotel is less than a mile from the Fairfield Pepe's (which is where, by the way I ate tonight, and I concurr with others, there is nothing better than a Pepe's pizza -- even if it comes from an outpost.

    Sure. I have Kentucky Fried Chicken every time we take an exchange student with us to the Columbus Zoo. As I recall, the last time we did that was 1973.

    Hello All,
    I'm still missing Long John Silver's Peg Legs.
    I won't touch pressed meat chicken fingers, or "wings"
    or nuggets, etc..
    Michael, 1973 was the last time at KFC? Why then?
    Also, there is a nasty rumour that KFC owns Waffle House.
    It's only a rumour.
    Take Care and be happy,
    Fieldthistle

    Boneless chicken "wings" are the name used for chicken pieces or chunks covered in wing sauce. Lots of bars around here have them, along with regular wings.

    Hate KFC's "boneless chicken wings", but love their honey barbeque wings. My grandaughter calls them "messy chicken" and addicted to them (beats the monontnty of chicken tenders). I love buffalo style wings as long as they are crispy and I can order "all flats". I don't like the little drumetts.

    Michael, do you reward your dog with fake wings from KFC when he rolls on the floor laughing (in doggie-speak) his little doggie butt off?
    I am having a problem keeping up with who is laughing at what when the chicken wings move in sauce?

    TJ, according to the commercial they make the boneless wings using nothing but white meat chicken breasts.

    Mr. Mayor, I do not reward my dog for laughing at me. I find appalling the idea that there is something called a wing sauce. It's bad enough that live human beings would be willing to eat the wings of chickens in the first place, but to then use a sauce as a means of hiding what they're eating strikes me as an indefensible practice.

    Let's see, the reason I had anything from Kentucky Fried Chicken in 1973 was because our exchange student from Chile wanted to try these things she'd heard about. As to the rumor that KFC owns Waffle House, well, it's a nasty rumor with absolutely no basis in fact.

    Haven't had them, but....I'll bet what KFC is calling "breast meat" is really just the little bits of meat and gristle hanging off the ribs and other bones of chicken carcasses after they've cut off the real chicken breast fillets, then mechanically separated. If you want an example of this, check out any fast food chicken nugget you didn't get at a Chick Fil-A.

    Obviously, wing sauce is the term for the type of sauce that is on buffalo wings or boneless wings. Buffalo wing sauce is a more descriptive term. Whether the wing is actually a wing or breast meat chicken doesn't matter - 99% of the time, it really is a wing, hence the term wing sauce. There are numerous kinds of sauce that can fit this description. Frank's Hot Sauce would be a good example - it is one of the more popular sauces used to make buffalo wings.
