A spokesperson for McDonald's (MCD +0.6%) confirms the restaurant chain will test selling chicken wings at select outlets. Though the move into wings could help widen the menu gap with Burger King and Wendy's again, a national rollout would be risky with wholesale chicken wing prices high and Buffalo Wild Wings (BWLD -1.6%) a dominant force.

    And some said venturing into speciality coffees would be risky too.

    That's a lot of chicken wings. Too bad each bird only has two.

    I'm in Qatar and they had chicken wings here for awhile a few months ago. They were pretty good but have since took them off the menu so I guess they didn't sell very well.

    Hopefully this proves successful. They've had a good track record introducing new products in the past.
