Chicken with Leeks and Shiitake Mushrooms

Author: Canadian Living

The subtle, earthy flavours of leeks and shiitake mushrooms naturally complement chicken. Serve this easy entertaining dish with mashed potatoes or rice. If you're not cooking with wine, replace it with chicken stock, adding 2 tsp (10 mL) white wine vinegar.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 3 lbs chicken pieces skinned
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 leeks (white and light green parts only) chopped
  • 2 cups slliced shiitake mushroom caps
  • 2 cups slliced button mushrooms
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine

Method

In large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; brown chicken, 10 minutes. Transfer to plate; pour off fat in pan.

Add butter to pan; reduce heat to medium. Add leeks, mushrooms, garlic, thyme, salt and pepper; cook, stirring occasionally, until leeks are softened, about 6 minutes. Sprinkle with flour; cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Stir in stock and wine; boil for 2 minutes.

Return chicken to pan; reduce heat, cover and simmer, occasionally spooning sauce over chicken, until juices run clear when chicken is pierced, 20 to 25 minutes.
