Chicken Lollipop Sauces?

Hey - I'm making panko-crusted chicken 'lollipops' for a party and would like to serve a couple of different dipping sauces with them. Anyone have any brilliant ideas? Thanks in advance.

  1. Probably obvious, but a thai peanut sauce... or maybe a wasabi and ginger spiked sauce...

    1. One of the best and simplest dipping sauces I ever stole was orange marmelade spiked with prepared horseradish, as spicy as you like. Stir with a spoon for more chutney-like, or process in the food processor if you want it smoother.

      1. I think those would be great with a chicken tikka creme, chipotle sauce or even something as simple as sweet chili sauce.

          Trader Joe's Very very Terriayki, mayo and wasabi, mustard with brown sugar and hot pepper flakes!
          How do you make chicken lollipops, please?!

          1. re: Kathi

            Hey Kathi -- just cut around the tip of a chicken wing, or the drummette, and loosen the meat around the joint. Hold the bottom and push the meat down gently to let the bone come through, forming a 'handle'. Remove any extra flesh from the bone and clean with a towel. Then just do the flour, egg wash and coat them in panko. I've also seen them done with the chicken tender coated in panko and fried then placed on a short skewer to create a sort of lollipop. Delicious and a clever presentation for parties and whatnot.

        2. Sweet and sour sauce does well in my house.
