Chicken Lollipops with Jerked Dipping Sauce

For the month of July, I have been bringing you a variety of dishes featuring Sweet Sunshine Sauces. I’ve brought you three main dishes and now today I’m bringing you a simple appetizer for your summer grilling season.

To begin, the foundation of your dipping sauce is Sweet Sunshine’s Jamaican Jerk sauce. Place a third cup of this in a small bowl.

To the sauce, add 1/4 cup of honey and a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil.

Into the bowl, grate a clove of garlic, and zest a whole lime.

Juice the lime into the bowl as well.

Whisk these all together. Set this aside for the time being.

Heat your grill to 400 degrees.

Now for the chicken. Grab a 1 1/2 pound package of chicken tenders. Roll a tender around into a spiral, and stick a soaked bamboo skewer through it to hold it in place. If your tenders are too thick to roll, split them in half with a knife, making two from the tender. Repeat this with all of the tenders. Lightly brush all of the lollipops with oil and then sprinkle with salt & pepper. Place these on the grill and cook for 5 minutes on each side or until they are cooked through. In the last minute of grilling, brush a little bit of the sauce over the chicken.

In this series, I have shared “Atomic” Pork Sliders with Mango Sauce which uses the Atomic sauce, Beef Skewers with Grilled Vegetables which uses the Sweet sauce and Grilled Chicken with Pineapple Salsa which uses the Roasted Shallot & Garlic sauce. It has been a pleasure working with their sauces, and we continue to enjoy them on a regular basis.
