Yield
4 servings (serving size: 2 thighs, about 2 leek pieces, and 1/2 cup sauce)

Cut diagonally into 2-inch pieces, the leeks soften and develop a delicate flavor but remain intact for a nice presentation. The Greek flavors in this dish call for a salad of crisp lettuce, cucumber, tomato, and feta topped with a lemon-mint dressing. Rice or oven-baked potatoes would complete the meal.

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Sprinkle chicken with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Add the chicken to pan; sauté 4 minutes on each side. Remove from pan. Add leeks to pan; sauté 4 minutes or until browned, turning once. Remove from pan.

Step 2

Add coriander and cinnamon; cook 30 seconds. Add wine and next 5 ingredients (wine through rind), and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 3 minutes. Add leeks. Cover and cook for 5 minutes. Add chicken. Cover and cook 8 minutes.

Step 3

Add tomato; bring to a boil. Uncover and cook 10 minutes, stirring often. Remove cinnamon, bay leaves, and rind.

Step 4

Stir in 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and chopped oregano. Sprinkle each serving with parsley.
