Lollipop Chicken

Juicy chicken lollipops just for you

Tender delicious chicken lollipops for you and your kids

Whether you are eating with kids or with friends these crunchy and juicy chicken lollipops never fail to impress. This is a Chinese and Indian fusion starter which is  very popular in Chinese restaurants in India. It was called as ‘Tree chicken’ at one restaurant and ‘Pakoda chicken’ in another. Of course like with most other dishes there are many versions of this delicious appetizer. But this recipe turns out very good. The combination of spices makes sure it is lip smacking.

Appetizing appetizer for you and your 'someone special'

The most important part of this dish is the ‘cut’. These lollipops are made from chicken wings. The flesh is pushed to one side away from the bone but still attached to it.

  5. Now, these look like a lot of fun to make and the ingredients sound delicious too! Once in awhile it’s okay to deep-fry and this would be one good example 🙂

      Thank you Judi 🙂 They were so yumm,that I forgot they were deep fried for once. I have been baking most of the dishes which would normally require deep frying,but this one was an exception. But one starter I would love to try again 🙂

      Thank you Linda 🙂 A super yummy starter. Can be prepared in advance and just fried when the guests arrive. Takes very less time because they are already boiled. I like such dishes on the menu when there is a party at home.
