  • Tips
  • * To prepare leeks: Remove green tops to within 2-inches of white part; peel outside layer of bulbs, then discard. Wash leeks several times in water to remove sand particles; drain.
  • **Internal temperature guidelines courtesy of USDA Food Safety Facts.
  • Substitute one whole, quartered chicken (3 to 3-1/2 lb.), for breast halves.

I am a big fan of leeks, but I also know they need to be cooked just right in order to taste good. This recipe left the leeks feeling tough and undercooked. I'm not sure if it was the length of time (not enough), or if the leeks simply need moisture to cook properly. Won't make this one again.
