Leek Tart and Poached Chicken
October 30, 2015
Leeks self-seeded in our vegetable garden this year. I didn’t plant any as I have not been able to master a beautiful long white stem. I know the theory of how to get it, I have tried to implement all of the recommended steps but with not much success.
Leeks have a long growing season so I didn’t bother planting any this year. By their own accord I ended up with a beautiful little clump of them in one corner of the garden. I harvested some of them last week and this was one of the resulting meals.
This tart is quick and easy to make. It may also be eaten warm or cold so is a great one to pack for work or school lunches or a picnic. I added the poached chicken on the side but if you wanted to it could be added to the tart. I didn’t like to dry out the chicken when it is so lovely and juicy from being poached.
This is my recipe for Leek Tart with Poached Chicken and chives:
This is a simple meal that the family will enjoy. As the tart may be served warm or cold it could be prepared in advance.
If you have had any luck getting your leeks to grow with long white stems please let me know your tips.
