A friend happened to make this one night. As soon as I tasted it I swear I was addicted. I can't go too long without making this, especially in the fall/ winter. I serve it with a wild rice blend. Everyone I have made it for has loved it. The only exception is my young daughter. This may be for more mature tastebuds with the onions etc. One of my absolute favorites.

Baking pieces of chicken is one of the easiest ways to put a meal on the table for your family. This mustard-glazed chicken is roasted on a bed of sliced onions, leeks and garlic that you can serve alongside it.

Very good! I love the different flavors together. I think this would taste great over some rice pilaf. I found that (I used thighs & drums) the cooking time was less.
I guess I'm in the minority, but I did not like this--and I love leeks, onions, and mustard. My husband was also underwhelmed. I did use more leeks than were called for (I had no other use for them & didn't want to waste them), but I don't think that's the reason. I agree with another poster that the flavors didn't meld--the onion & leek mixture seemed mismatched with the mustard sauce. It was very easy, but a big disappointment.
We used boneless chicken breasts instead of bone-in and it was delicious! Not dried out at all! The only thing we'd do differently is to double the vegetables next time.
Very tasty. I added about 4 oz of sliced portabella mushrooms (tossed with a little oil, salt & thyme) on top of the leeks & put the chicken on top of that. Yummy
