Ingredients

  • 4  Pounds  chicken drumsticks (fresh or thawed from frozen), Frenched
  • 6  Tablespoons  Raspberry Chipotle Rub, divided
  • 4  Tablespoons  honey

Directions

To make the "lollipops," use a sharp knife and cut off the knuckle end of the drumstick (where the wing was connected). Grip the bone tightly and push the meat and skin down toward the meaty end of the drumstick to create a knob.

Preheat grill to medium-high.

In a large bowl, sprinkle 2 tablespoons Raspberry Chipotle Rub over the Frenched chicken drumsticks and toss to coat.

Place on the hot grill. Turning every few minutes to prevent burning.

In a small bowl add the remaining 4 tablespoons Raspberry Chipotle Rub and 4 tablespoons honey. Stir to combine. Baste over the chicken lollipops for the last 5 minutes of cooking, turning occasionally to prevent burning.

Serve immediately.

Raspberry Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
