  1. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees C.
  2. Add a teaspoon of salt and pepper, 2 teaspoons of Lemon & Black Pepper, 1 and 1/2 teaspoons of chicken spice and mix together.
  3. Add the chicken drumsticks into a pot of olive oil on medium heat and brown for 5-7 minutes.
  4. Add boiling water into the pot and allow the chicken to boil and cook for 15-20 minutes.
  5. Put the batter-coated potato wedges on an oiled oven pan and put that in the oven to bake for 5-10 minutes until crispy and golden brown. Throw the potato wedges in a bowl and season to your liking with lemon & black pepper, lemon juice and then quickly toss and set them aside.
  6. Transfer the cooked chicken onto a plate and set aside to cool. Start removing the meat and the skin from the bone and put the bones on a separate plate.
  7. Chop up the chicken into small bite-sized pieces. Peel and grate the medium sized potatoes and throw both the grated potatoes and chopped chicken in a bowl.
  8. Add 3 tablespoons of the flour, 2 tablespoons of the lemon & black pepper, 2 teaspoons of the onion powder, a dash of chilli flakes, a few squirts of Lemon Juice and mix all of that together.
  9. Start moulding the chicken lollipops on the drumstick bones. Add what’s left of the flour into a bowl and add the Southern Coating mix and mix all of that together. 
  10. Carefully dip the chicken popsicle into the egg wash, then into the coating mix, back into the egg wash and lastly into the crumb coating and deep fry in a pot of olive oil on high heat (continue this until all chicken lollipops are done).
  11. Serve with the green herb slaw.

For the dipping sauce

  1. Add 4 heaped tablespoons of double plain yoghurt into a bowl, a few drops of lemon juice and just a dash of the lemon & black pepper and mix well.
