Chicken Lollipop | Restaurant Style Chicken Lollipop Recipe

What can beat a perfect starter other than Chicken Lollipop? this is my all time favorite and its been in my list of to-do recipes for so long. Some call them chicken lollipop others chicken drumstick. We had guests over the weekend and I just knew I  had to do this recipe for starters. You must be knowing by now what happens when I start frying the chicken, well had my wonderful husband waiting to try the first one and then the second and then he did not get any :P until the guests had their share. Although there are versions of stuffed chicken lollipops and even those with bread crumbs but you just want something to suit your taste buds. I must admit that one of friend Sherin Deepu had posted her chicken lollipop and it did push me to try the dish but do check her version here.

Chicken Lollipop are done from chicken wings, but without the skin and in my opinion its best to get the butchers to do the chopping work, unless and until you would want to do it yourself at home. You can check this video to see how the meat is cut. Well I went the easy way and gave the job to the butchers to cut the lollipops for me. 

These chicken lollipops are tender and juicy and do not require a dipping sauce whatsoever. They taste good  all by themselves and I did make a big batch of 15 lollipops and needless to say it all got over. Well I did not  have much time to take fancy pictures but I sure cannot keep this recipe with me so want to share it with you all :-)I did fry them an hour before and lined them in a foiled tray to be grilled for 10 mins before serving, it still tasted great and they simply loved it. 


Chicken wings cut into lollipops - 15 no
Curd - 1 cup (I used onken)
Red chilli powder - 1/4 tsp
Corriander powder - 1 tsp
Soy sauce - 3-4 tbsp
Salt- as per taste
Egg - 1
Oil- to deep fry (refined sunflower)
6-7 dried red chilli whole
2-3 tbsp ginger garlic paste
juice of 1 lemon
Maida/ all purpose flour - 1 tbsp
Cornflour - 1 tbsp


Blend all the ingredients except the chicken & flour in a mixie/ food processor until smooth. Transfer it into a bowl, mix the flour to it and dab it over all the chicken pieces and refrigerate over-night, covering with a cling film. The next day heat oil in a pan (medium-low) and fry the chicken pieces shallow until well cooked on each side for 4-5 minutes. Make sure that the oil is medium-low heat and not too hot otherwise the chicken would not cook on the inside. Fry one piece and taste to check if its cooked well and the spices are balanced. If not add more spices and mix well and fry.

Decorate them with foil ends and serve hot

Cooks Wisdom

- Do not over heat the oil and make sure it is in medium-low heat so that the chicken is cooked from the inside
- Drizzle with lemon juice and serve 
- The color was from the red chilli and i did not use any artificial colors to the marinate
- Tastes great when marinated over-night or atleast for 8 hours
- You could also use Kashmiri red chili for an even better color

Try them and you are sure to love them :-)
