  • Summary

    Leeks grow in abundance in Normandy, in northern France, where the alliums are celebrated for their ability to transform even the simplest dish into something spectacular. Take chicken Normande, a multi-layered main course of braised chicken, hard apple cider (another local specialty), and of course, leeks. Serve this with crusty bread. This recipe appears in our cookbook "Martha Stewart's Vegetables" (Clarkson Potter).

    Ingredients

    • 1 whole chicken (about 4 pounds), cut into 10 pieces (each breast half cut in half crosswise)
    • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
    • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
    • 2 teaspoons olive oil
    • 4 small leeks (white and pale-green parts only), cut crosswise into 3-inch pieces, rinsed well (about 1 pound)
    • 1 cup good-quality hard apple cider
    • 1 tablespoon coarsely chopped fresh thyme leaves
    • 1/2 cup store-bought or homemade Creme Fraiche
    • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
