So you want something warm, easy and healthy for dinner that doesn’t take too long? This is a quick and savory dish from the cookbook The Dinner Doctor by Anne Byrn, who brought us the popular Cake Doctor cookbooks.
The original name of this recipe is Half-Hour Chicken and Leek Stew. I lopped off the beginning because it took a bit longer. But it was worth it.
I came across this goody in my stack of untried soup recipes. It’s from the Food Network Kitchen’s The Chopped Cookbook: Use What You’ve Got to Cook Something Great. The recipe, a take on the classic Shepherd’s Pie*, says it takes 50 minutes to make, and that is about right. But contestants never get that much time on the Chopped TV show. Maybe the cookbook allows extra time for home cooks who are just as manic because we are making additional dishes.
