I love the mild onion flavor of leeks, I use them in soups, pasta dishes and chicken dishes. Paired with the robust flavor of the sweet sun-dried tomatoes, this dish is sure to please the palate!

Try to find sun-dried tomatoes that are not packed in oil. I look for the ones that are soft and ready to eat, but depending on the brand, some may need to soak in warm water if they are very hard. A little goes a long way!

I used rice flour for a gluten free dish and to test if it changed the taste from wheat flour and I thought it worked out well. If you are on a gluten-free diet, use rice flour; if not all purpose flour or whole wheat is fine.

  1. A decade and a half ago I had sun dried tomatoes and hated them. Had them a few years later in another dish. Hated it. Stumbled across this recipe this week while searching chicken and thought, wow. This sounds so good. And Gina knows her stuff. Made this tonight and happy to say it was awesome! Maybe because the tomatoes were dry in a bag and not in oil, but they added so much to this dish. Made as printed and my hubby and I loved it, and we will def make again!
