Chicken Lollipop Recipe - A hot and spicy appetizer made with drummettes or whole chicken wings.To make chicken lollipop, either drummettes or whole chicken wings can be used. Both need to be frenched to get the shape of a lollipop. I have used drummettes. If you live in a place where drummettes are not available, you can use whole chicken wings. If you are a beginner and has not handled meat before i suggest you try with drummettes. These are the first portion of the whole chicken wings and are fairly easy to french.
