Baked Chicken and Bacon wrapped Leeks
So last week I wanted to make something that I have never made before, in doing so I went to my handy-dandy cookbook that I got at Anothropologie called The Illustrated Quick Cook.
So I flipped to a recipe which sounded amazing it was the Chicken with Chicory (aka Endive) and Bacon, instead of Chicory, which my gourmet Market did not carry I substituted Leeks for the Chicory.
First I Sauteed the Leeks in Olive Oil until browned..
Then wrapped them in raw bacon.
I then browned the chicken the same way and threw it all in one casserole dish and baked it at 400 for 25 min's.
Meal was accompanied by a French Red Wine... and yes I totally use my bills as a coaster. :)
The meal turned out awesome! We discovered that E is not a fan of Leeks, but does love the tenderness of the chicken and well BACON. You can rarely go wrong with bacon.
