BIB Fast Food: Chicken Lollipops

BIB Fast Food: Chicken Lollipops

 

Do you have a hard time getting your kids to eat chicken? Well let me tell you a little secret guys. It’s all in the name. If I call chicken, well, chicken, my kids won’t eat it either. But when I serve them up chicken legs and call them lollipops? They gobble them down to the bone! I’m not kidding. Go ahead and give it a try!

Now you might be wondering why I would bother baking the chicken in the skin if my kids won’t go near that stuff. It’s because it keeps the chicken *super* moist (and because the adults can always eat it for them! :). Use you favorite bottled barbecue sauce, or for a sugar free alternative, just sprinkle with your favorite spices and drizzle with olive oil. I like World Harbors Australian Style Bar-B Marinade (purchase here) or Hunts honey hickory (purchase here).

    1. Uncovered. Thanks for pointing out that I left out that crucial bit of information, I’ll revise the post accordingly!

  1. This used to work for my kids and still might for my younger ones, but my 8 year won’t touch it. Oh well, 2 out of 3 aint bad, thanks for reminding me to call it a lollipop.

  2. One of my kids is decided to go vegetarian a few months ago and seems to be sticking to it. The other will not have anything to do with chicken. I used to love drumsticks as a kid.

  3. I agree completely about names. Even grownups sometimes have to hear it right or they won’t eat something! And I also agree about the skin. My kids didn’t and now my grandchildren won’t eat the crispy skin (but I am grateful because I know how delicious it is and I get to eat it!), but it protects the meat and keeps it juicy. These look delicious.
