Brillat-Savarin once said “ Poultry is for the cook what canvas is for the painter”. I truly believe that as I have made more recipes with chicken than any other meats. Last night was no exception.
Thanks to my favorite gentleman, Pete atPersonal Gourmet Foods , I always have a well stocked freezer and chicken is a staple, a most. Easy to be creative.
The recipe that follows was created as I was going along. I love lemon chicken and I love leeks in the winter, combining the two was a quick decision.
The relish that was created while cooking from the combination of the two was a great compliment to the chicken. Sweet and tangy.
While I had the oven on, I crushed a couple of garlic cloves, seasoned well the broccolis with olive oil, salt and pepper and place them in a cookie sheet. In the oven they went for 15 minutes while the chicken was finishing cooking.
I hope you will enjoy this meal as much as we did.
