The Chicken Lollipop

Chicken Lollipop |

Hello and welcome to Quantum Isoraka’s culinary blog! Today, I’m going to talk to you about the Chicken Lollipop dish that I discovered. Quantum Isoraka is a restaurant that combines tradition and modernity. Whether you’re a fan of kebab, couscous, shawarma, tajine, or if you prefer Indian cuisine with its curries, naans, and samosas, you’ll find something to delight you at Quantum Isoraka. But the dish that impressed me the most is the chicken lollipop, an Indian specialty that lives up to its name!

So, what is chicken lollipop? It’s an original and playful way to prepare chicken wings. The wings are cut into three pieces, the tips are removed, and the flesh is detached from the bone to form a sort of lollipop shape. The chicken pieces are then marinated in a mixture of spices, soy sauce, vinegar, and garlic. They are coated in a batter made from flour, cornstarch, egg, and water. Finally, they are deep-fried in hot oil until crispy and golden.

The result is delicious! The meat is tender and juicy, the coating is crispy and spicy, and the contrast between the chicken and the bone is amusing. Chicken lollipops can be enjoyed by picking them up with your fingers and dipping them in a sauce of your choice: tomato sauce, yogurt sauce, mint sauce… It’s an ideal dish for appetizers or a friendly meal.

The chicken lollipop has a story behind it. It originated in southern India, where it is called ‘chicken 65.’ According to legend, the name comes from the number of spices used to prepare it: 65! Another version tells that the dish was invented in 1965 by an Indian chef who wanted to please his Chinese customers. Regardless of its origin, chicken lollipop is now a popular dish throughout India and the world.
