I have made this twice now and love it. The sauce is light and refreshing and the whole thing is so easy to make that I will be making it many times over. Leeks are really similar to onions so if you don't mind onions, you won't mind leeks. It adds a delicate flavor to the sauce. The first time I made it, I took the advice of the magazine and used boneless skinless chicken thighs, but it took too much effort and time to trim off all the fat, so the second time I went back to my old standby of boneless skinless chicken breasts and it was just as good but took less prep time.

Any recipe that begins "first you take a leek" can't be bad.

It looks good. I just can't mix fruit with meat.
