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'!
Wow, I thought this was outstanding. I was excited to find a leek recipe that was not a soup or chowder. I used a large saute pan rather than a sauce pan, as I find that chicken tends to steam in enclosed pans rather than brown. I did halve the recipe and came out with 5 good sized portions. I also used Hormel Real Bacon Bits rather than open a pack of bacon just for 4 slices. I did not have any white wine so I substituted rice wine, and used whole milk in place of the cream since I didnt have that either. I opted not to use any cornstarch as I thought it was perfect without. Thanks for a recipe we will have many more times!
