Do You Know?
Chicken lollipop is an appetizer served before the main courses of a meal. It is made from the middle (and sometimes inner) segments of chicken wings. The middle segment has one of the two bones removed, and the flesh on the segments is pushed to one end of the bone. These are then coated in a spicy batter and deep-fried. It is also a popular item in Indian Chinese Cuisine.
