There are many recipes out there about tandoori chicken lollipop but most of them are not giving you a satisfactory answer. Some are using chicken legs or chicken mince to make a chicken lollipop.

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.

3. Last comes the wings tips -- those tiny, pointy pieces shaped like a feather at the end.

Tandoori chicken lollipop is very popular now a days due to the healthy and hygenic way of preparation using a charcoal Tandoor.

The regular chicken lollipop is a batter coated deep fried one. And tandoori chicken lollipop is a curd based marination cooked and roast in an Ovalclay charcoal tandoor.
