Since I had some chicken thighs, leeks and mushrooms in the refrigerator, I decided to get creative and make something for lunch using the available ingredients. While I was eating lunch, my piano tuner came in and had to try a taste because it smelled so good. He gave it a rave review and I thought that it was really good as well. I am on WW and doing the core program. This recipe fits into the perimeters for the core plan.

This is a good chicken recipe. Leeks, mushrooms and chicken are a wonderful combination. I added a bit more broth as it was simmering (some of it simmered off). It seemed a bit "tomatoey" so I added a little soy sauce and about 1 tbsp of brown sugar. Delicious! Thanx for sharing; I'll make this again.

Mmm!!! this was a nice change, I've never put mushrooms and leeks together before but I thought they went very well, it made into a very nice sauce. I did add a bit more stock as it seemed a bit dry ( not enough gravy we like lots) and I thickened it with just a touch of cornstarch, I also added a 1/4 of a teaspoon of splenda to take the edge off the sharpness of the tomato. I like chicken thighs as I think they have much more flavour as well as being cheaper. Thank you for posting. I will be making this again.
