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.

  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley

Instructions

  • Cut off green tops of leek and remove outer tough leaves.
  • Cut off root and cut leeks in half lengthwise.

  • Top the chicken with the sun dried tomato/leeks mixture and serve.

Notes

  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!

  2. I loved this recipe SO MUCH. I made it, and after the first bite of my dinner I emailed the link to the menu to my mother and insisted she make it, too. She’s since adapted it with shrimp as well. Honestly, everyone should try this one.

  3. This was good. My husband and I felt like it definitely needed some acid like lemon juice and maybe a touch more white wine. We definitely are going to give this another shot it really has potential! 

  4. This was wonderful and will have to be one to make often. Love recipes like this that come together so quickly. I cut the chicken breasts I had on hand in half, each one weighed a bit more but it didn’t effect the recipe. ( I pounded them a bit to get them thinner too.) The leeks and sun dried tomatoes have so much flavor for such few ingredients. A real winner.
    I have always loved leeks and have a lot of ready to use leek left over as I chopped three larger ones while I was at it. Need to check out more recipes that use them. I did the air fryer one from the air fryer book for an egg, leek, spinach bake. It was great too and quick and easy.

  5. That is an awesome recipe!! Served it with steamed broccoli. Thank you !

  6. Was actually fantastic. To quote my wife, “It was everything I knew I needed, and everything I had no idea I wanted.”
    Will def be keeping this one.

  7. Delicious! I will be maiking this again!

  8. Hi, this is one of  favorite recipes! Do you know the freestyle points for it by any chance? Thanks!

  9. Great dish! I scaled it up to four portions (I wanted to get rid of some leeks that were squatting in my fridge) and now I have frozen the three I haven't eaten. Thanks!

  10. I DIY my sun-dried tomatoes, so I get the flavor without the cost. Thanks for posting, I shared this on my May real food meal plan.

  11. I agree with everyone else — this dish is DELICIOUS! I'm writing to say that I served it over sautéed broccoli slaw — a little olive oil, a couple cloves of garlic, and some basil, oregano, thyme and Original Mrs. Dash… towards the end of the cooking time, I added a little of the water that I'd reconstituted my sundried tomatoes in, covered the pan, and let the broccoli steam just a bit. The flavors blended very well with those of the chicken, and I will make the whole meal again, for sure!! Thanks for a great blog and recipe haven!

  12. One of the best Chicken recipes I've made in a LONG TIME

  13. This looks yum. My hubby hates sun dried tomatoes, sadly, so I might leave them out or just leave them in big pieces so he can pick around them. Thanks for testing this gluten free. I actually like rice flour for coating chicken better than wheat flour. Seems to give it a better texture.

  14. I can not wait to try this…looks fabulous!!!!

  15. I just made this tonight and loved it. I served it over quinoa. Delicious!

  16. I'm totally going to make this for my friend this weekend! But… 8g of sugar?? How so?

  17. Thanks for the tasty recipe! We made it for company this evening and everyone loved it!

  18. Made for Shabbat dinner! Entire family loved! Definitely will be in our rotation. That's saying a lot since I usually don't like chicken breast. Thanks Gina for being go-to person for recipes! You never disappoint!!!!

  19. This is my fourth time making this recipe and I can't get enough. Amazing! Thank you for sharing.

  20. I have made this recipe 3 or 4 times now and we just love it!! Thanks for posting it!!

  21. Would a drained can of diced tomatoes work instead of sun dried tomatoes? Would love to make this tonight and its all I have on hand!

  22. Just made this. So good. I didn't have parsley, but I did add artichoke hearts. I used boneless, skinless chicken thighs and I sprinkled it with fat free feta. Yummy!!!

  23. this was AMAZING!!! I used water because I did not have the chicken broth and it was so good!

  24. Made this tonight….delish . I didn't have parsley but had some extra fresh spinach . I used it and it was really good !!!!!!

  25. Hi…I am new to your site and discovered the chicken with leeks and sun dried tomato recipe and just made it….it looks divine and smells even more divine…I have been on WW for five weeks now and am an avid cook…mainly gourmet…so it has been a real search for recipes stating nutritional values…wow…when I found you…what a treasure you are in my life:) I can't wait to experiment with all of your posts…..you have made life so easy for many WW folks and I think you are BRILLANT!

  26. Gina- I love this site. I made this recipe last night and it was yummy! I added some mushrooms and chopped artichoke hearts- I didn't use any flour served it over some brown rice!! Tonight we are making the stuffed cabbage casserole. Looking forward to trying more of your recipes and appreciate the nutritional information and WW point counts!!

  27. I made this last night and it was ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS! Although next time, I will probably add more leeks and pair it with steamed broccoli.

    This dish is definitely going into rotation.

  28. Did not like this one. The chicken was rubbery cooked like this. I even pounded them out to be thin. Also, salting the chicken before cooking it as well as salting the veggies in the pan made it really salty overall. I usually like recipes from this site, but not this time! Can't win them all, I guess!

  29. Do you make the tomato and leeks mixture in the same pan that you used to cook the chicken.

  30. Made this yesterday and it was delicious!! Having some leftovers with a salad for lunch today. YUM!

  31. Made this last night . One of the best chicken dishes I have ever had!! I made it with the exact ingredients in the recipe.Not only did my husband and daughter love it, I lost 3 lbs. this week counting WW points.

  32. Served over wild/brown rice this was a huge hit tonight. Next time, we'll quadruple the leeks!

  33. I've made this about 5 times now. My husband & I love it! I never know what to do with leeks, so this recipe was so helpful. It's delicious, easy and the leftovers are great for lunch. I substituted watercress for the parsley tonight since I was out. It was delicious!

  34. I made this for dinner the other night and it was delicious, thanks for another great recipe. I love knowing that whatever I make from you is healthy and good for us. Check out my post about it:

  35. I made this recipe last week and it was delicious. I'm so glad there were leftovers so I could enjoy it several more times. I put it over penne pasta.

  36. Made this for dinner -served with rice – it was great! Husband and I both enjoyed it. Thanks so much.

  37. Made this tonight and it was DELICIOUS!!!! My only complaint…..I wanted to eat seconds and thirds!

  38. I had never tried leeks before..but this looked awesome so I gave it a try. It was DELICIOUS!!!!!!!!! So good! Thank you thank you!! Even my picky kids ate it! (One even asked for 2nds) 🙂

  39. If this tastes as good as it looks, it must be amazing. I may try with some veal cutlets I picked up on sale at the market.

  40. Thank you so much for including gluten free recipes! I am really excited to try this with rice flour.

  41. Made this for dinner tonight for myself and my "I hate low fat" boyfriend and he LOVED it! This was a knock out of the park! Thanks Gina!!!!

  42. This was amazing! My husband said it's the best meal I've ever made him. I will definitely be making this again. Thanks Gina!

  43. So I made this one last week, I had 1/2 a bottle of sun dried tomatoes left after making some other recipe that used them. This was sooooo good. I served up a side of Orzo sprinkled with feta to compliment it. Sooo good, will make it again!

  44. This is really amazing! I couldn't find any sun dried tomatoes not packed in oil.. so I just tried to rinse them off a little…? *My husband liked it as well- he even said "restaurant quality" — but thought some rice or pasta would be really good with it! 🙂

  45. Thank you Cassie (and "Anonymous" below that!). I'll have to try the produce section again, maybe I just missed it the sundried tomatoes not packed in oil. Unfortunately, there is no Trader Joe's where I live – though we're supposed to get one soon!

  46. Made this last night for dinner, so delicious! Had it over some yellow rice, and it was a perfect meal!

  47. I made this the other night and it was delicious! Loved the sweetness of the sun dried tomatoes with the leeks.

  48. I purchase sun-dried tomatoes not packed in oil from Trader Joe's. I use them all the time.

  49. This is the first recipe I've made of yours (after finding your site only a few days ago!) and OMG! I think you've changed my life. I can't BELIEVE this is low fat. It was soooo delicious! Thank you Gina!!!

  50. … I found sun-dried tomatoes not in oil in the produce section of my local grocery store. They're near where the jars of minced garlic are. Hope that helps!

    I'm making this dish tonight – can't wait to eat it!

  51. LOVED this! I served it with wild rice and some steamed green beans, and the leeks were so good with the rice. My skinny boyfriend finished off the 3rd serving I was hoping to have for lunch the next day, and requested that I add this to my regular "arsenal" (which is a pretty big deal coming from him). It's different, and it'll add some nice variety to the chicken dished I usually make.

  52. Where do you find sundried tomatoes not in oil? I use them in a lot of my pasta dishes, but have never found ones that aren't packed in oil. Would love to find the ready-to-eat ones you mentioned!

  53. "Better than any restaurant dish" per DH. I added 2 tsp extra oil and stretched it to 4 servings. No white wine so I made do with just the chicken broth. I served it with brown rice and steamed brussels sprouts that I tossed with balsamic, Dijon mustard, salt and pepper. Great!

  54. Made this tonight. Incredible flavor. Served with Jasmine rice w/toasted pine nuts and brocolli with WW mock hollandaise. Next time I would use more broth and wine to increase the sauce to drizzle over the rice! May serve this to next month's supper club…it's that good.

  55. Just had to comment… I made this dish for super tonight and LOVED LOVED LOVED it! Super Yum! Thanks so much!

  56. I just made this tonight, adding some cannellini beans as well. Delicious!

  57. i couldnt find the tomatoes NOT in oil : however i bought the ones in oil and instead of using extra olive oil i just used the oil from the tomatoes- GREAT flavor!!!! not sure how many extra points it may have added but still tasted delish!!!

  58. I made this the day you posted it and it was amazing. One of your best that I've tried, so far. My husband and I loved it. Thanks for all your hard work and great dishes.

  59. I've never posted before — but this recipe was terrific. My husband is sooo fussy about chicken other than just plain grilled — and he raved about it. Thank you!

  60. This looks great! If you didn't use any flour, can you tell us what the new nutritional info would be, trying to make as low carb as possible!

  61. I did not have thin chicken breasts so I just cut into Thin Slices and made strips. This was absolutely delicious. I used organic free range chicken. So worth the $$$. Such clean pieces. Did not have white wine but I did have some left over Prosecco from last night. Seem to work just fine. Thanks Gina!
    Nancy- North Carolina

  62. This sounds fantastic! Can't wait to try it!

  63. I made this last night for dinner and it was delicious! I've always wanted to know how to cook with leeks and this was great. My husband loved it, too.
    Rachael – Utah

  64. Made this tonight, but didn't have parsley on hand, and substituted basil – DELICIOUS! A little mozzarella on top and it would have had a very caprese-y flavor.

    Served with steamed green beans and couscous – dinner made in 35 minutes. Awesome.

  65. I read every recipe that comes in and I must say
    they are the most enticing I have seen. One thing about cooking (that I love) is for food to
    look like a thing of beauty. Yours fit the bill
    in looks, taste and then there's is the WW points. How great.

  66. I made this tonight and it was wonderful. My skinny husband loved it and had 2 helpings. It was the first time we tried Leeks-yummy! I will be making this again for sure.

  67. Gina – I've never written but have been a dedicated "user" of your website for the last five months. You make my life ~ and my meal planning! ~ delicious, healthy and easy. I love your recipes and the pictures that explain them. Thank you for ALL that you do. Happy New Year to you and your family!

  68. Sundried tomatoes and leeks are two of my favorite ingredients. This looks fabulous. I will be putting this in my menu plan soon.

  69. I think my husband would FALL OVER in delight if I made this tonight!

  70. OMG! This looks amazing! Gina you come up with the best recipes. I make one of your meals at least once a week! You are one of my favorite blogs!!

  71. michele, I often slice them myself, but in this case I bought them sliced thin. It's much cheaper to do it yourself.

    ariele, this is simply a variation of my chicken mushroom white wine dish 🙂 I can probably come up with 20 ways to make this.

    erin, not sure if this would be good with red, I always use white.

    heather, if you have turkey cutlets I'm sure it would be great, but not sure about leftover turkey.

    If you don't like sun-dried tomatoes, you can leave them out.

    Spunky, I ate this as a meal but you could of course make some pasta or salad on the side.

  72. Would this need a side dish?? Or be enough by itself?

  73. wow that looks totally yummy!

  74. Dinner on Sunday! Can't wait!

  75. Do you have any ideas for someone who doesn't like sundried tomatoes? Would stewed tomatoes work?

  76. Yum! Light and quick, gotta love that!

  77. Would it be safe to put in turkey, (I have so much left over from last night)?

  78. Do you think this would work with red wine (only because I have a half finished bottle in the fridge)? Thanks!

  79. this website is unbelievable. i don't know how you come up with a new recipe everyday. thank you. ariele

  80. This looks great! Question: Do you slice your chicken breasts that thin or do you purchase them that way?

  81. Oh my! I'm loving the loads of sun dried tomatoes in this dish!
