Chicken & Leek Stroganoff (Jamie Oliver)


Chicken & Leek Stroganoff (Jamie's Food Revolution)

I Heart Cooking Clubs (IHCC) is going on six years of cooking wonderful recipes by awesome chefs! This week, it's this month's potluck week. I choose Jamie's Chicken & Leek Stroganoff from Jamie's Food Revolution. His original recipe requires brown rice, but I substitute it with kamut ditalini, a kind of short tube pasta made from the kamut grain.

Actually, this is the first time I cook Jamie's (Oliver) recipe. Everyone knows this celebrity chef, even if you're not into cooking. His cookbooks can be found easily in major bookstores in Kuala Lumpur. Until today, I still haven't bought any of his cookbooks. I'm not sure why. Haha. 


Recipe adapted from here.

Ingredients:
(Serves 2)

1/2 cup kamut ditalini (cooked, drained, and tossed with extra virgin olive oil)
1/4 cup olive oil
1 large leek, cleaned well then halved & sliced thin
2 chicken breast fillets, cut into fingers
1 cup white oyster mushrooms, sliced
1 cup cooking cream
 


How to:

1. Put a large pan on high heat and add olive oil. Add leek with some water. Let it bubble away for 5 minutes, loosely covered. Add chicken, mushrooms, and cooking cream.

2. Stir, bring back to a boil, then turn heat down to medium and simmer for about 10 minutes before turning off the heat.

3. Spoon some pasta onto a plate and serve with stroganoff.

These little tubes are ditalini pasta.

I absolutely love creamy stroganoff!

  1. Hi Joyce,

    I have tried cooking Jamie Oliver's recipes before and I really like his food and of course, I know that this pasta must be really good.

    Your stroganoff looks delicious! JO's recipes are good! You want to buy his books, wait for the year end Big Bad Wolf Sale, you can get his books really cheap! Otherwise drop by BookXcess at Amcorp Mall, the books there are a bargain! I have 5 of his books! :)

  4. Never had kamut ditalini before, sounds exotic to me 😃 I like some of the recipes by Jamie but have not tried this one. Good choice.

  5. Maybe after this dish, you'll explore Jamie Oliver a bit more ... and maybe invest in one of his cook books! Your stroganoff looks wonderful!

  7. Joyce, when I read that you are cooking one of Jamie's recipes, I know it's very good for sure. It's pretty hard to go wrong with Jamie. True enough, your stroganoff looks so good that I wish it was dinner time again hehe

  8. Jamie always has such great recipes--simple and they taste great too. This stroganoff looks delicious and I like the pairing with the pasta better than with rice. ;-)

  9. That looks good! And I think pasta was a perfect pairing!

    My own favorite of Jamie Oliver's cookbooks (so far! tho I have almost all of them, found thrifty-ly) is his 30-Minute Meals (called something different from his USA publishers, maybe Meals in Minutes). I find it rather miraculous! I'm really enjoying his Save with Jamie too though....

  10. I love his recipes, too, but like you, don 't have any of this cookbooks. I really need to remedy that. Especially after seeing this dish. YUM!
