Braised Chicken with Honey & Leeks

Whoever said cooking at home can’t be delicious and simple? This wonderful recipe combines the rich flavours of leeks and honey to create an easy to make dish the whole family will enjoy.


4 teaspoons olive oil, divided

2 skinless chicken breasts

3/4 teaspoon kosher salt, divided

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

3 cups thinly sliced leeks (about 2 large)

3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

2 teaspoons honey

2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley or chives (optional)


Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add 2 teaspoons oil to pan; swirl to coat.

Sprinkle chicken evenly with 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper. Place chicken in pan; cook 4 minutes on each side or until browned. Remove chicken from pan; keep warm.

Add remaining 2 teaspoons oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add leeks and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt; cook 15 minutes or until leeks begin to brown, scraping pan to loosen browned bits.

Remove pan from heat; stir in lemon juice and honey. Return chicken to pan. Mound leeks on top of chicken thighs.

Cover and cook for another 15 minutes or until a thermometer registers 165°. Top with fresh parsley or chives, if desired.
