This was one for the history books, Smokey, spicy, sweet and with a nice crunch. Chicken lollipops are always a nice treat!
-Prep your chicken drumsticks by cutting right under the bottom of the drumstick where the meat ends with a sharp knife, use a paper towel to pull the skin up and over the knuckle, season your chicken with salt, pepper, smoked paprika, garlic powder, and corn starch.
-Add cooking oil and coat the chicken well
-Preheat your grill at 350 degrees and place your chicken opposite of the heat, create 2 cooking zones on your grill. Cook your chicken until 165 internal temperature. When this happens, sear your chicken for about 15 seconds per side to give it a nice char, then toss in that delicious sauce.
-Any other notes you want to add: make your sauce while your chicken has been cooking, combine all ingredients and simmer on low for 10 min. I served the chicken along with size carrots and celery with ranch. These lollipops fly off the table, make plenty!
