Directions
Watch how to make this recipe.
  • Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper. Heat a large deep skillet or Dutch oven over medium-high heat with the EVOO. Brown the chicken in batches, and remove to a plate.

  • Add the ham to brown, then remove to a plate. Reduce the heat a bit, add the butter and when it foams, add the carrots, bay leaf and some salt and pepper. Cook partially covered for 5 minutes. Add the wine to deglaze the pan, then add in the garlic and leeks, cook for 2 minutes. Add the stock, then return the chicken and ham to the pot. Simmer partially covered to cook through and combine flavors, 30 minutes.

  • Cool completely and store in the refrigerator for a make-ahead meal.

  • To serve, reheat over medium heat, stir in the herbs and lemon juice. Pass bread at table.
