Found this recipe on the internet when looking for something to use some schnitzel and a leek that I had in the fridge. Nice and easy plus very tasty. Made a perfect Friday night whip-up. I didn't have fresh herbs so sub'ed with dried herbs and omitted the parsley, but have copied the recipe as it was originally submitted. Will definitely be making again.

  • 1 leek, thinly sliced
  • 14 cup cream, thickened
  • 14 cup chicken stock, Campbell's if possible (liquid)

Tasty! I don't know what makes a cut of meat be a schnitzel. I cut part of a boneless pork roast into 1/2 inch thick slices and went from there. I maybe should have pounded the meat to get it thinner. Because I didn't the cooking time was a lot longer. All in all, a very good dish. Leeks always make a dish seem a bit more elegant... made for PAC fall 2012
