Baked Chicken Lollipop - these drumette appetizers are perfect finger food and are shaped like a lollipop. Marinated with hoisin ginger and baked to juicy deliciousness.
Servings: 10
Prep Time 1 hour 20 minutes
Cook Time 35 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 55 minutes

Equipments:

  • Oven

Ingredients:

  • 10 pieces chicken drumsticks (skin attached, cleaned and pat-dry)

Marinade:

  • 2 tsp ginger (peeled and minced)
  • 1 clove garlic (minced)
  • 3 tbsp Hoisin sauce
  • ½ tbsp chili sauce (mild)
  • ½ tbsp soy sauce
  • ½ tbsp sugar (or honey)
  • ½ tbsp water

Chili Lime Dipping Sauce

  • 2 tbsp Jalapeno pepper (finely chopped)
  • 1 tbsp chili sauce
  • ½ cup lime juice
  • cup chicken stock
  • 2 tbsp cilantro (or coriander leaves)
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • ¼ tsp salt

Instructions:

  • Use a kitchen knife or scissor to cut the skin and tendons around the base of each drummete.
  • Peel, scrape and push the meat down to the thick end, from top to bottom. It made the drumette looks just like a lollipop.
  • Repeat with remaining chicken drumsticks.
  • 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.

Notes

1.) You can wrap the  lollipop “stick” end in tin foil to prevent the bone from turning dark during the cooking process. But importantly, for serving and it created the perfect handle for the kids with far less dripping and sticky fingers.
