How many chicken thighs are you suppose to use?!

I just love hot wings or any other kind of wings for that matter...but I never understood why people use the term boneless wings when it's actually a chicken tender or nugget. Using the thigh is a great idea to keep it from getting dry but I'm wondering, do the crumbs stick to the chicken without having some type of batter on them?
