Too much time to spend on each chicken wing flat! Though, it's far far better than wasting that glorious meat. I just eat around the flat and then bite and eat the cartilage. That separates the two bones, you pull them apart (in one straight line instead of two parallel lines and then eat the meat. I think it's better than pulling out the bones since there's a thick vein in the wing flat that I don't like to eat.
