This was easy to make. My mom and dad enjoyed it. I seasoned the chicken with salt and pepper before cooking. I doubled the leeks and the sauce so we'd have some extra to go over noodles and also used fresh tarragon. (about 1/3 cup because of the doubled sauce) I must confess that I added a 1/4 cup of heavy cream near the end of cooking to make it rich tasting. So much for the 'good for dieters', huh? It was delicious.
