The Instacart guide to chicken back
About chicken back
Chicken backs are what's left of the chicken after you or the butcher cuts away the breast, wings, and legs. The backs are mostly bone and skin and sometimes include a piece of meat called the oyster. The oyster is two round pieces of dark meat located near the thigh. The amount of meat you get with a chicken back depends on how it's cut, but it's often similar to that of a wing. Even though chicken backs usually have just a small amount of meat, they're popular meal items in the southern United States.
Chicken backs are often used to make bone broth or stock because they have lots of flavorful marrow. Many restaurants also feature battered and fried chicken backs on their menus, calling them chicken ribs.
The nutrition information for chicken back varies depending on whether it includes the skin. A 1-ounce serving of chicken back with the skin on has:
- 96 calories
- 7 grams of fat

If you remove the skin, the calorie content drops to 57, and the fat reduces to only 3 grams. Removing the skin also removes all the cholesterol and reduces the sodium to 23 grams.
