Buffalo Chicken Lollipops

Shop Tony's Flavors In This Recipe


  • 12 Chicken Drumsticks, Skinned

  • 3/4 Cups Buffalo Sauce

  • 1/2 Stick Butter

  • Tony’s Original Creole Seasoning, to Taste

  • Paprika, to Taste

  • Olive Oil

  • Clear


  1. To lollipop the drumsticks, score the skin and meat around the bottom of the drumstick in a circular motion. Hold the meaty part of the drumstick while you pull the skin to the bottom of the drumstick, so the bone is exposed. Cut off any excess from the bone and push the chicken down.
  2. Coat chicken in paprika and Tony’s Original Creole Seasoning and place in the refrigerator for up to 8 hours to marinate.
  3. Preheat oven to 400°F. Lightly coat a skillet in olive oil and place over medium-high heat. Working in batches to not overcrowd the pan, sear chicken lollipops on all sides. Turn them occasionally, cooking them for about 10 minutes until all sides are seared. Once they are seared, line them on a wire rack and place on a baking sheet.
  4. Bake the lollipops for 20-30 minutes or until fully cooked.
  5. As the legs bake, combine the buffalo sauce and butter in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave for 1 minute or until butter is melted. Stir to combine.
  6. Toss drumsticks in the buffalo sauce and place on a serving platter.
