How to Lollipop the chicken drumstick (watch video)

  1. Where most of the meat ends, separate the tendons. In a circular motion, cut around the bone without cutting through it.
  2. With a paring knife, push the meat toward the knuckle end of the bone. Then cut the tendons and skin off with the paring knife or kitchen shears.
  3. Hold the knuckle and pull the meat down toward the base of the drumstick. There is a small bone that you can feel with your fingers. Wiggle it around until it pops out.

Dry rub, Grilling and Basting the Chicken Lollipops

  1. Mix dry rub ingredients and rub into the skin of each drumstick.
  2. Meanwhile, mix the ingredients of the mopping sauce. Heat grill to medium heat, and spray with nonstick cooking spray.
  3. Grill chicken drumsticks until internal temperature reaches 170°F, about 30 minutes, turning as needed to crisp the skin. Start to mop with the glaze after 20 minutes.

    I made the recipe and it tastes delicious. However I didn’t “lollipop” the chicken as I find it difficult so I just cut off a little at the ends so that they can stand up to cook. Also baked instead of grilled.
