How to Prepare Chicken Lollipop
Preparation is the key to this dish. The cooking process is easy. Even newbies can cook tender crispy fried chicken wings using this method as long as the wings are properly prepped.
The chicken wings need to be sliced into two pieces, We will be needing the wingette and drumette parts. Save the wingtip for future use. It can be used as ingredient for chicken stock.
The next step is to push all the meat to one end of the bone. Do this by loosening the meat from one end of the bone and forcibly pushing it down to the other end. Sometimes it is as easy as pushing it downwards with a little force, but sometimes a knife is needed to loosen the meat and muscles from the bone. I suggest that you watch the video below to see how I did mine.
The details of the cooking process are listed in the recipe below.
