One of the world’s favorite finger foods, chicken lollipops can be prepared in so many ways. They can be fried, grilled or baked. The marinade can be anything from kid-friendly Southern-style buttermilk-based mixes to the more exotic blend of aromatic spices.

This recipe uses a marinade with the very popular honey-mustard combination but spiked with the heat of sambal and given more kick with the addition of garlic and lemon juice. It is recommended that the chicken marinate at least overnight in the fridge to really give the meat time to soak up all the flavors.

Quick Notes

Prepared chicken lollipops are sold in some groceries. I got mine from S&R. The downside is that the sizes vary. You get both small and big chicken lollipops in the same pack.

If you want to prepare the chicken yourself, there are various video tutorials on the web. Just Google.
