Pow Pow Chicken Lollipops
Chicken / BBQ
Our Pow Pow Chicken lollipop is spicy-spin on the super popular Indo-Chinese appetizer where a chicken leg or drumette is cut down into the shape of a lollipop and marinated and then smoked until crisp. This flavorful recipe can be used for a meal or they can be used as unique game day appetizer.
Using a sharp knife cut around the bone about an inch or so down from the knuckle. remove the skin and meat from the knuckle and push the leg meat down a bit. It should begin looking like a lollipop.
Use Pow pow as a binder on the meat. Season chicken with Q-Nami Rub.
Set Grill/Smoker to 275 and place legs meat side down (they may fall over) There are other accessories depending on your grill that will hang the legs. Use what you got. Cook until internal temperature reaches 175.
In a small sauce pot heat 1 cup Pow Pow, butter, brown sugar, and 1 tbsp Q-Nami
Once legs have hit 175 (using a heat glove) dunk meat side down into the mixture and place back on the grill/smoker. Give them 5 minutes and dunk again. (Do this as much as you like) We dunked 3 times and left on the grill until the legs reached 185-190 internal temperature.
Let rest. Sprinkle with diced green onions and/or sesame seeds. Enjoy
