DIRECTIONS

  • In a large skillet bring the chicken broth and 2 Tbs butter to a gentle boil over medium heat.
  • Cook leeks in the broth mixture over medium heat about 8 minutes, until tender with the broth boiled down enough that leeks are not completely submerged.
  • Salt and pepper the chicken breasts and place on top of the simmering leeks, spooning some of leeks over the chicken.
  • Reduce the heat to low and cook, covered, 10-15 minutes until done.
  • Remove chicken and keep warm on a warmed platter.
  • Increase the heat under the leeks to high and stir in the lemon juice, the remaining 2 Tbs butter, and the chopped herb. When the butter melts, taste the sauce and adjust seasonings if needed.
  • Pour the leek sauce over the chicken and serve.
