Chicken with Creamy Braised Leeks

March/April 2011

Your rating: None Average: 4.4 (81 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.

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.

Disliked this

We just disliked this all together and I like leeks but it was bland and I have had better. Sorry .... I tried it with high hopes...but not for us.

Spiced it up

The first time I made it I thought it needed more zing so I added red and white pepper to the warmed cream. It was delicious.
