Chicken Lollipop

Lollipops and our thoughts take us back to the golden childhood days when all friends enjoy sucking the lollipops (candies) to glory waiting for the others to finish first. There is not a single kid who hates lollipops. The same is the love for Chicken lollipops. It’s a great delicious appetizer wanting to be pounced on.

Chicken lollipops are an Indo Chinese dish and very popular delicious appetizers for the kids. Kids love to have chicken lollipops. It’s actually all time favorite of everyone.  Chicken lollipop is made from the middle (sometimes inner) segments of Chicken wings. The middle segment has one of the two bones removed and the flesh on the segment is pushed to one end of the bone and deep fried with spices.

Chicken lollipop can be prepared in any style. Either you can deep fry the lollipops or else deep fry and than toss them in Manchurian or Sichuan sauce. Cooking the chicken lollipops is quite easy.

Watch the video to prepare the chicken wings for the lollipops. Each chicken wing can be made into 2 lollipops, one portion closer to the shoulder (meatier portion) and another portion away from the shoulder (remove the second small bone). This is the less meaty portion and can be stuffed so the presentation looks nice Prepare stuffing-Season chicken mince with paneer mixed in, salt, chilli powder, herbs, green chilli and stuff the smaller lollipops with this mixture. Now we can season the prepared lollipops with few dashes, soy sauce, chilli/garlic paste, ginger/garlic paste and marinate for some time. Prepare batter-Mix in chilli powder, chilli/garlic sauce, salt, cornflour to the beaten egg

Heat oil to medium heat (the lollipops need to cook completely inside hence, oil should not be too hot or else outside will get brown too quickly leaving the insides uncooked) Roll the lollipops in the batter and bread crumbs, drop gently into the oil and fry to a golden brown and not dark brown. The Lollipops can also be made without batter/ breadcrumbs. Just fry them till golden brown. These lollipops can be served with a quick sauce made as below. Saute in some oil, cumin and crushed ginger/garlic until fragrant. Add curry leaves, soy sauce, chopped green chillies, coriander leaves and Aji no moto. Toss in the fried lollipops and serve immediately.

In most of the restaurants you find that the lollipops are red in color. Color is optional and it’s always better to avoid the color and eat it with the natural golden color. Do prepare it during parties and the kids will surely enjoy the lollipops.
