Spicy Chicken Lollipops

Posted in: Baking, Appetizers, Chicken,

Description

Chicken drumsticks are a great and inexpensive part of the chicken to prepare for either a dinner party or lunch. A sweet and hot glaze, with a fancy yet easy French technique, will surely make this a hit with family and friends.

Mary Poehnelt, the Butcher from Belchertown, was recently named the runner up on FOX’s hit reality show “Hell’s Kitchen.” After defeating stiff competition and creating remarkably innovative dishes, Mary fuses her French culinary education with her love for Korean cooking, into this unique treat.

First, cut the drumstick at the knuckle, by firmly pressing down the knife at the knuckle and pressing down. Then scrape the flesh and the skin, away from the top of the knuckle. This is called “Frenching”. Prepare the glaze. Sear the drumsticks, then bake and “voila!” The next great dinner dish is here. Enjoy!
