Chicken Lollipops w/ Rosemary & Lemongrass

I guess I'm on a roll using Rosemary in my dishes lately. I really like the aroma it brings when you add it to food! Another thing that I've been using a lot of is Lemongrass, and like Rosemary imparts an aroma and flavor to liven up any dish. Chicken lollipops are readily available here in most major supermarkets, so no problem in acquiring that. The marinade is similar to my previous post except that i used Kecap Manis, added lots of finely minced garlic, salt, paprika, worcestershire sauce, dried rosemary and pounded lemongrass (the white inner core).
I used the leafy part of the lemongrass and tied it around the bone of the chicken lollipops. I then coated this in egg and flour then proceeded to deep fry it. The result are fragrant and crunchy chicken lollipops!

Great looking dish. For those who can't acquire Chicken Lollipops from the grocery store, they are simple to make from chicken drumettes.. Check out: http://bbq.adamsfamilyia.com/bbq/post/2008/04/Chicken-Lollipops.aspx

Thanks Jason. I've never tried doing lollipops on my own. Maybe one day. I really like the bacon wrapped chicken lollipops you made!

these are all perfectly blended herbs for a chicken: rosemary and lemon grass!! Sarap!! I can probably replace the lemongrass with pandan leaves too..dont you think?

my rosemary plant is doing really well and I too have been trying to incorporate it in almost every dish I've been cooking lately.

These lollipops look really delicious!

dhanggit, thanks! enjoy!

hilda, you can use pandan, however that would turn out like chicken pandan. How about a combination? :)

jmom, i have month old rosemary plant. I hope it stays alive. :)
I recently tried adobo with rosemary. It was good!

I'd like to use fresh rosemary a lot, but my one and only rosemary bush is poorly growing. Masama na ang tingin ko sa mga dahon nya...

Same here. After that dish, natutuyo na sya. I'm still hoping i can do something to prevent it from withering.
