Chicken wings pack at least 43 calories into every wing, depending upon how they are cooked. Baked wings contain 43 calories each, while fried chicken wings contain 61 calories each.

Fried chicken wings contain more calories because the wings are often covered in flour before they are deep fried in oil. The oil contains saturated fat that is not healthy. Those who are looking for a healthy way to cook wings should bake them in the oven. To bake chicken wings, a cookie sheet is sprayed with nonstick spray, the wings are laid out on the cookie sheet and then they are baked in a 350-degree oven until they are cooked through.
