    1. 1
      Season the chicken with salt and pepper.
    2. 2
      Melt the butter over medium heat in a saute pan just large enough to hold the chicken.
    3. 3
      Add the chicken, skin side down, and cook for about eight minutes over medium heat.
    4. 4

    8. 8
      Add the leeks and cook them for 10 minutes over medium heat.
    9. 9
      Stir the leeks every couple of minutes.
    10. 10
      They should be soft but not brown.
    11. 11

    12. 12

      Bring to a simmer and season to taste with salt and pepper.
    21. 21

    22. 22
      Suggestions and variations: Try adding a cup of sliced mushrooms along with the apples.
    23. 23
      The mushroom flavor goes well with the other ingredients, and the mushrooms make the soup more substantial.
    24. 24
      This soup is also delicious with curry, which can be added by gently cooking a tb of curry powder in a tb of butter and stirring it into the soup shortly before serving.
