  • 3 fresh leeks, sliced lengthwise, cleaned very well
  • peanut oil, for frying
  • 1 cup hot sauce, plus more for dipping
  • 1 egg, well beaten
  • 6 chicken drumlettes
  • Paula Deen's House Seasoning
  • self-rising flour
  • 6 slices white bread, crust trimmed
  • mayonnaise


Prepare leeks by blanching in a pot of boiling water for 1 minute. Remove to an ice bath to chill. Set aside. When chilled, drain leeks.


Place oil in a deep-fryer or fill a large, heavy-bottomed pan no more than halfway full with oil. Preheat the oil to 350º


In a shallow bowl, stir together hot sauce and egg. Season chicken with House Seasoning and then dredge in egg mixture. Coat chicken in self-rising flour.


When oil is at 350º, carefully place chicken into hot oil and deep-fry for 7 to 8 minutes. Remove chicken with tongs and drain on paper towels. Spread each slice of bread with mayonnaise and place chicken drumette in center. Fold bread around chicken and tie with a leek strip. Have extra hot sauce for dipping.
