This recipe is a study in how to build flavor easily and quickly. Start by cooking diced bacon in a little olive oil to render the fat and give the bacon some color, then add diced chicken and saute until cooked through. While sometimes the aromatics are cooked first, here the leek and carrot is added at this point and cooked until tender. Cutting the chicken into smaller pieces means there's more surface area to take on more flavors, and they will also cook more quickly for a fast weeknight meal.


  • 2 chicken breasts (cubed)
  • 1 leeks (thinly sliced)
  • 1 medium carrot (grated)
