Can you make a chicken lollipop using chicken legs or drumsticks?  I don't agree with them at all. That is not the real chicken lollipop.

To make chicken lollipop, you need the wings part of a chicken which is called Wingettes.  Not the legs or drumsticks.

There are only two wings in a whole chicken. And the wing of chicken can be divided into three parts.

1. The upper part is called Drumettes which is  attached to the main part of the chicken.

2. The middle part is called Wingettes which has two thin bones that runs parallel to each other and covered with skin.
