Maple and Herb Lollipops 迷迭香枫蜜棒棒鸡

Wow! Another long absence. I have been really busy. The kids have more enrichment/tuition classes. Hence, I'm out of the house most of the day and I have to wait around waiting for their classes to finish.

Some of you might know, my son is in the afternoon class and so his tuition classes are in the morning when his sister is in school. And when he is in school in the afternoon, it will be his sister's turn to go for enrichment. Now you know why I'm out most of the day. By the time we reach home, it will be time for me to cook for dinner. Oh and not to forget the tons of housework waiting for me to clear too. By the time I finished everything, I'll be too tired to sit down in front of the computer to blog (sometimes too late!).

I'm still here though. But I might not be able to reply to your queries. If you really need me to clarify any of my recipes here, you can post them on the chatbox. I'll try to get back as soon as I can.

Okay, here's a recipe you can try during the weekends. I bet the kids will love. :)

  • 10 Chicken Drumlets
  • 2 tablespoon Maple Syrup
  • 1 tablespoon Oyster Sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Dark Soy Sauce for colour (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon Pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dried Rosemary or 1 1/2 teaspoon fresh Rosemary, stem removed and chopped

How to do it:
  1. Scrape meat from 'skinny end' of the drumlet and push the meat down to form a 'ball'.
  2. Mix all the other ingredients together and marinate the drumlets with it for at least an hour.
  3. Heat a saucepan with oil.
  4. Fry the drumlets till they turn golden brown.
  5. Drain and serve immediately.

  • I won't suggest you fry and serve it later as the drumlets will turn slightly hard when it's cold due to the maple syrup.
  • You can also use honey instead of maple syrup.


  1. Hi, it's a very great blog.
    I could tell how much efforts you've taken on it.
    Keep doing!
