Pomegranate Chicken Lollipops


Prep time: 15 mins

Cook time: 30 mins

Makes: 10




500g Meat Box Chicken Drummettes

¼ cup pomegranate molasses

½ tsp cumin

½ tsp coriander

Juice of one lemon

1 clove of garlic, crushed

1 Tbsp honey


  1. Preheat oven to 180C
  2. Using a small sharp paring knife grab the thin end of the drummette firmly, then carefully cut through the skin surrounding the bone, using a sawing motion and turning it around. Once the skin is cut all around, use your knife to scrape down the meat from the bone. You may need to cut through a couple of sinews. Push the meat down to the other end. Using your fingers, pull the meat over the fat end of the bone so that it’s inside out. Voila a chicken lollipop!
  3. To make the marinade combine the pomegranate molasses, cumin, coriander, lemon juice, garlic and honey.
  4. Pour over the chicken lollipops and marinate in the fridge for an hour.
  5. Cook in preheated oven for approx. 25-30mins.
