Chicago, Ill. (WTVR) –  McDonald’s will expand its test run of chicken wings from Atlanta to Chicago.

The wings are sold in servings of three, five or 10 pieces and prices start at $3, according to Lynne Collier, an analyst.

The Associated Press reports that about 500 restaurants in Chicago will start serving the wings, with ranch as the default dipping sauce. Fast-food chains typically introduce new items in a few major test markets, before committing to a national launch.
