Tandoori Chicken Lollipop

TANDOORI CHICKEN LOLLIPOP is guilt free, light to have and yet tasty too. As the name says it all , the chicken lollipops are marinated in tandori masala with other spices and grilled in oven or cooked in frying pan with just a few drops of oil and then baste with butter and is grilled on gas to give that grilling effect . I just simply loved this idea when I had it , few months back in one of the restaurants where they served us chicken platter . I instantly loved the idea and thought to in corporate it when I make Tandoori Chicken lollipop.

  3. In a fry pan add 2 tbsp oil , add the chicken lollipops and cook on high flame until the masala has dried up. Off the gas.
  4. Side by side heat a coal ,and place it in a small bowl and keep in between the lollipops , add ghee butter/oil and cover with a lid immediately to give a smoky flavor.  
  5. Now baste each lollipops with butter and grill on gas directly on small barbecue grill net  , carefully keep moving at intervals and keep basting with butter to get that grilled effect . 
  6. Cover the base portion of each lollipops with a small piece of foil to look attractive and can be hold while eating. ( optional step ) 
  7. Serve hot with homemade Red Chilly Chutney


  •  If you frying the lollipops in fry pan , then at the time of grilling on gas keep basting with butter so that it doesn’t dry up . 
  • If you grilling the chicken in oven , then it may take 30-35 minutes or more than that as it depends on your oven too .
