Amazing I am no cook but this is now my signature dish. I Used 7 boned-in chicken thighs and cooked about 5-8 minutes longer. I also used more heavy whipped cream so we would have more for left overs. I am in love with this recipe!!!! Served with Butter noodles and a salad. Also garnished with parsley. Pros: Easy and Tasty
Easy AND Delicious I made this recipe the other night and both my husband and I LOVED it. I followed it exactly and didn't have the issues that some other members mentioned. The chicken was still juicy the leeks were the perfect texture and we had just enough gravy for the two of us to eat and save for leftovers. This also reheated incredibly well but we used the oven to reheat and not the microwave. The only 'downside' is that it takes about an hour to make so for us this is a better weekend dinner and use leftovers for lunch/dinner during the week. Pros: Easy Basic Ingredients Tastes Great Reheats well Cons: Long cooking time
Good stuff I used chicken thighs with skin and did not make a sauce out of the pan dripping from chicken. There was way too much grease and fat for that. I just dropped the chicken in the leeks and broth for about 20 minutes and also added a little bit of white wine and butter I had some half and half and added a dash. It was great over mashed potatoes. I only used 3 cloves of garlic becuase we only had 4 leeks and 4 chicken thighs. I may use more garlic next time and maybe some more pepper but otherwise it was really good. Pros: Easy Cons: Just slightly bland.
Amazing! My standards were kind of low as I've tried several recipes from this site and was totally disappointed. However this dish was awesome!! It was simple to make required few ingredients and really tasted like something you would get at an upscale restaurant. I boiled up a side of bow-tie pasta and poured a little of the cream sauce over it to make the dish more filling - definitely - complimented the chicken and leeks without distracting from the creamy garlic goodness. Yum yum! I will make this again and will share this recipe with friends and family!
very tasty when added chicken I thought there was still too much Broth so I scooped out about a cup. Then instead of adding the cream I left the deglazed cream sauce on the stove and served a tbs on the chicken as to not dilute the flavor too much. Delicious Pros: Easy hands-off meal
Easy tasty affordable meal This meal was super easy to make and I love that it uses so few and easily accessible affordable ingredients. The meal tasted more expensive and difficult to make than it was. I substituted fresh rosemary sprigs for the fresh thyme and it was super good. The cream sauce was a little thin for whole wheat egg noodles (it would have been better with mashed potatoes the first night) but it reheated thicker the next day. Pros: simple ingredients; easy prep work Cons: takes an hour to cook
Great I made mine with rice...it was so good. I had never ate leeks before and found that I love it....will def. make again...my husband loved it too... Pros: easy to make items on hand low cost Cons: sauce a little thin
Super tasty - Leeks are underrated! I'm a self-proclaimed leek lover but I was skeptical at first about how tender the leeks would come out in this recipe - they weren't completely submerged in the chicken broth - but wow! were they tasty (they do take the 40 minutes to braise which is the only downside but not a big deal). As a mom with a busy toddler I also love that there's very little prep to this recipe. The only change I made was instead of buying the thicker chicken breasts I bought thin-sliced chicken cutlets which speeds up the time they cook in the oven and I end up with more chicken pieces/servings. Absolutely delicious! Pros: Easy to make economical Cons: Takes awhile to cook
