Ingredients
  • 6 chicken thighs (all skin and visible fat removed)
  • 3 large leeks, sliced

  3. Add the ghee or butter to a frying over a medium heat with the garlic and a little bit of chopped parsley and thyme and fry for a 1-2 minutes just to infuse the flavour
  4. Add chicken pieces and cook until lightly golden.
  5. Set aside
  6. Add the onion and butternut squash and cook until the squash starts to soften. Add a little bit of the chicken stock at time, to prevent any from sticking to the pan.

  8. Transfer the chicken, leeks, onion and squash to an oven proof dish. Pour over the remaining chicken stock, just to keep the dish moist. Top with the parmesan cheese and season with some salt black pepper.
