Papillotes de poulet aux poireaux, thym et lardons

Send the rose petals. It’s really good ! Cooking the chicken breasts in
papillote

makes it top soft. And with the thyme, the

bacon

Papillotes de poulet aux poireaux, thym et lardons and the

leeks

, it’s succulent. Try it, it’s worth it!

For 4 persons






  • 100 ml chicken stock (homemade or reconstituted with a cube)
  • 8 strands of thyme
  • 200 g of smoked bacon
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil.

Wash the leeks, split them in half to clean them well and cut them into strips.

Pour 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a frying pan. Heat and add the leek slices. Moisten with the chicken stock and cook covered for 20 minutes. Remove the lid and cook for a further 5 minutes, there should be almost no liquid left.

Drain through a colander. Set aside.

Brown the bacon dry in a frying pan over a fairly high heat. Remove the fat and let them drain on absorbent paper.

Wash and dry the thyme sprigs. Preheat the oven to 180°C, rotating heat.

Cut 4 sheets of baking paper. Take one of them. Make a bed with 14 of the leek filling. Put the chicken escalope, thyme and 14 of the bacon on top.  Close the papillote. I bind with a string that’s what I find more practical.
