  • 1 tbsp olive oil

Melt the butter*, then add the leeks and mushrooms. Season with ½ tsp salt and ¼ tsp pepper, and cook for 10 minutes, until softened.
Add the garlic, and stir for 30 seconds.
Add the cream and parmesan, and stir.
Add the chicken back to the pan, along with any juices from the plate.
Add the thyme sprigs to the cream, then bake the chicken in the oven for 20 minutes, or until the chicken is completely cooked and measures 180F. Enjoy!
