Testing the waters with some frozen chicken portions (wings are actually the least useful option - except if you want to hold her food whilst she eats it) seems a good idea. Personally I would choose thighs or drumsticks and defrost them first. Frozen food is more likely to cause near-term tummy upset, and also less likely to be interesting to the dog.
If I can find thighs or drumsticks, do I let her eat the bones in them as well? I thought bones bigger than those in like a chicken wing are too big?
