How Many Calories & WW Points in Chicken Wings?
Buffalo chicken wings are my husbands all-time favorite food. He thought an order of 10 wings was a low-carb healthy lunch. Boy was he shocked to learn the amount of fat and calories they contained.
Restaurant buffalos wings often have the skin still on, are deep fried and then coated with a fat-laden Buffalo sauce. The USDA National Nutrient Database puts fried chicken wings without sauce at roughly 103 calories each. Hooter’s wings are estimated to have more than 170 calories each.
According to the WW App, one chicken bone-in, skin on chicken wing has 6 SmartPoints!
