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.


  1. the cook book looks amazing and the dish even better - great weekend to you!

  2. Mmmmm! This looks positively amazing.
