Great way to use leeks and fresh tomatoes! We'll make it again soon.

Agree with Sam - easy and delicious! I only had chicken thighs handy so sliced them width-wise and cooked them up and they were great as well. Didn't have any tobasco sauce so instead just added some chilli powder, white vinegar and garlic. Also added mushrooms to the recipe which worked well too.
