Japanese B.B.Q. Chicken

2-3 boneless chicken, cut into 1 inch-cubes 

1-2 Leeks, cut into ½ inch coins 


Marinade: 1 tablespoon Honey 

3 tablespoons Soy sauce 

1 tablespoon Saki 

½ tablespoon Sesame oil 

1 clove Garlic


In a small bowl mix marinade using honey, soy sauce, Saki, sesame oil, and garlicAlternate chicken and leek coins on skewers. Layer skewers in shallow pan and pour marinade over skewers. Marinate for 30 minutes turning skewers halfway through. Grill skewers for 5 minutes each side, until chicken is cooked through. Boil remaining marinade and use as dipping sauce. 

Tarragon Chicken

4 skinless, boneless, chicken breast portions 

½ Cup dry white wine 

1 ¼ Cups chicken stock 

1 tablespoon dried tarragon 

1 garlic clove, finely chopped 

¾ cup whipping cream 

1 tablespoon chopped fresh tarragon  

Salt and pepper 

Season the chicken portions lightly with salt and pepper and put them in a pan just large enough to hold them in one layer.  Pour in wine and stock, adding more stock if necessary, to make sure chicken is covered. Add dried tarragon and garlic.  Bring the stock just to a simmer over medium heat and cook gently for 8-10 minutes or until the juices run clear when chicken is pierced with knife. 

Transfer chicken to a plate and simmer cooking juices to reduce by at least half. 

Add the cream and simmer to reduce and thicken the sauce.  Adjust seasoning adding more salt, pepper, and tarragon to suit your taste.   Add back chicken to coat with sauce and serve. 

Note: I usually serve this over rice. 

Serves 4.

½ teaspoon ground pepper 

1 tablespoon chopped parsley

½ cup heavy whipping cream 

¼ cup flour 

About ½ hour before soup is done, mix flour and cream until smooth.  Turn slow cooker up to high and add flour and cream mixture.  Stir until soup thickens.
