This was a personal creation, made by mixing a bunch of flavors together that I thought would work well. It is rich and tasty and even my fussy 3 year old seemed to enjoy it.

This was pretty good! I thought leeks looked interested and had never tried to use them before so this was my first attempt. I used whole milk instead of cream and left out the corn starch. The chicken came out really moist which is usually not what happens when I cook chicken so I was pleasantly surprised! Thanks for sharing this recipe :)

LOVED this!!! My 3 and 4 year old and 37 year old LOVED this--thank you. I made it as written, needed no starch to thicken, served with basmati rice,a salad and waa-laa. Just a yummy, flavorful dish--will serve it for company next time with some white wine.

I was looking for a recipe to imitate a chicken and leek crepe ... this did the trick ... I made this dish and filled 12 crepes (any crepe recipe will do). I then topped it with a white wine and mushroom cream sauce (found at this website - really good), shredded some mozzarella cheese, baked the dish @350 for 20 min - and you have gourmet style chicken and leek crepes. This would not be for someone watching their waist line however it was a '10'!
