Chicken with Creamy Braised Leeks

March/April 2011

Your rating: None Average: 4.3 (94 votes)

A touch of heavy cream, a few garlic cloves and thyme sprigs round out the flavor of tender braised leeks with chicken in this recipe. The rich, silky sauce is wonderful over whole-wheat egg noodles or mashed potatoes. Leeks grown in the garden and those that you find at the store can be vastly different in size. Garden leeks tend to be smaller, so if you’re using leeks from the garden, make sure you pick enough to fill up the pan.

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.

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.

Easy, Basic Ingredients, Tastes Great, Reheats well

This is one of our favorite cold weather comfort food recipes. I serve it with mashed potatoes and it's fantastic. I usually swap some of the broth for white wine.
