Raspberry Chipotle Chicken Lollipops

  • Difficulty Easy
  • Time 45 minutes

Can we just talk for a minute about how excited we are about “Grilling Season” fast approaching?  In the Pacific Northwest we tend to roll our grills into the storage shed for the winter months because it’s so dang cold.  But, Mother Nature has been playing nice.  The tulips are starting to bust through the soil and it’s time to dust off the ‘que and get it fired up again.  First on the list….Raspberry Chipotle Chicken Lollipops. 

Raspberry Chipotle Chicken Lollipops | Spiceology

To make “lollipops” you simply French chicken drumsticks.  Sounds scary and super culinary, but it’s quite simple.  Here’s how:

Use a sharp knife and cut off the knuckle end of the drumstick (where the wing was connected).  Grip the bone tightly and push the meat and skin down toward the meaty end of the drumstick to create a knob.  BOOM….you’re done.  Repeat with the remaining drumsticks.

Easy….right?  This sweet and spicy recipe for Raspberry Chipotle Chicken Lollipops uses 3 ingredients: Raspberry Chipotle, honey & chicken to create a delicious, eye-catching, BBQ’d chicken that your friends will think you spent eons creating.
