Baked Chicken Lollipop – the most amazing drumette appetizer that is shaped like a lollipop. Marinated with hoisin ginger and baked to juicy deliciousness!
Today, I would like to share a perfect appetizer that will appeal to all your guests, then you have definitely got to try this Chicken Lollipop recipe. Bite-size finger foods are always a hit at any social events, especially if it’s on a stick and so easy to prepare (no skewers needed). Yet the result is so scrumptious, flavorful and has a cool name like Chicken Lollipop.
These amazing chicken lollipops are just so juicy, succulent, and such a treat to the entire family, including picky eaters. One tip which I am going to share: wrap your bone part with aluminum foil so the overall presentation looks great, plus it’s cleaner to just hold it on the hand. And we all don’t have to be reminded that we are holding onto the bone of the drumette.
Chicken Lollipop Recipe
Makes: 10 | Prep Time: 15 Minutes | Cook Time: 35 Minutes
10 chicken drumettes, skin attached), cleaned and pat-dry
2-inch ginger, peeled and minced
1 clove garlic, peeled and minced
3 tablespoons Hoisin sauce
1/2 tablespoon mild chili sauce, optional
1/2 tablespoon soy sauce
1/2 tablespoon honey or sugar
1/2 tablespoon water
Using a pair of scissors or knife, cut the skin and tendons around the base of each drumette. Peel, scrape and push the meat down to the thick end, from top to bottom making into a ball of lollipop shape. Cut off the knuckle end with scissors or knife. Repeat with remaining chicken drumettes.
In a bowl, prepare the Marinade ingredients. Add in the chicken drumettes, coat well and marinate for at least 1 hour, or best overnight.
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Arrange the chicken drumettes on the wire rack set over a baking pan. Bake until the chicken is nicely browned and slightly charred, and completely cooked through, for about 35 minutes.
Serve with the dipping sauce of your choice. They are delicious as is without any dipping sauce.
