Chicken Lollipop with Green Chilli Mayo

Chicken Lollipop is a popular Indo Chinese appetizer/ hors d’œuvre. Something about these Lollipop Shaped fried chicken wings has everyone reaching to grab one!  Could it be the crunchy texture and spiced, aromatic flavor that comes with each bite?!?

A very ‘simple to do ‘recipe. I use chicken drumettes, although you can make lollipops with both drumettes as well as the mid joint of the wing. The drumette is ‘frenched’ – a term used when the meat is cut loose from the bone end and pushed down creating a lollipop appearance.  We love it with a simple Green Chilli Mayo.

Chicken Lollipop with Green Chilli Mayo


  • 10 chicken drumettes / wing sticks
  • oil for deep frying
  • fresh coriander for garnish, lime wedges

For the Marinade:

  •  3 cloves garlic (the larger ones)
  • Same amount of ginger as garlic, peeled
  • 1 long green chili (the milder variety)
  • 2 Tbsp fresh coriander leaves
  • 2 Tbsp fresh celery leaves
  • 1 egg
  • ¹/8 tsp turmeric
  • ¹/8 tsp garam masala
  • ¼ tsp black pepper powder
  • 1 tsp kashmir chilli powder
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • ¹/3 tsp salt – or to taste
  • 1 ½ Tbsp plain flour
  • 1 ½ Tbsp cornstarch / cornflour

For Green Chili Mayo:

  • 3 Tbsp Mayonnaise
  • 3 Tbsp green chili sauce (I use Ching’s Secret)
  • 2 Tbsp chopped coriander


  • First we will french our chicken drumettes. (The drumette is the first section of the entire chicken wing between the shoulder and the elbow). Scroll down to see how the chicken drumettes are ‘frenched’.
  • Remove skin from the drumettes /wing sticks.
  • Make a circular cut around the bottom bone, cutting through the flesh, down to the bone and removing any ‘connective tissue’.
  • Scrape up the meat along the bone (without bruising the bone) with the side of your ‘boning’ knife.
  • Also remove / cut off any extra flesh and cartilage left on the bottom tip of the bone.
  • Pull up the flesh over the top tip of the bone, much like pulling off socks to form the rounded ‘lollipop’ shaped top.
