3 garlic cloves, pressed

2 leeks, split, washed and chopped
250 ml gluten free chicken stock
1/4 cup KUNGFU GIRL white Riesling wine (obviously you can substitute other white wine for this)

2 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
2 red chiles, sliced
bunch curly parsley, chopped
salt and pepper to taste

1. Heat the oil in a casserole and fry the onions until soft but not browned (4 min), add the garlic, chicken and leeks and stir until the chicken is browned. Add the cumin, cayenne and chili peppers and stir.

2. Add the chicken stock and wine and simmer until the leeks are tender and the chicken is cooked (8 minutes, give or take what is needed).

3. Stir in the beans, heat through, salt and pepper to taste, stir in parsley and serve.

drink the rest of the wine with dinner.


  1. i googled to get the tasting notes on kung fu girl. looks like my kind of thing. a real bummer though that it's actually pretty hard to find in vancouver considering it's a WA state wine.

  2. it was really good. It was the first taste of wine I had in nearly 2 years! I drank a whole 1/2 glass. :) and no, I don't plan to take up drinking. it was a one off sorta thing. :)

  3. this is perfect, i have a case of kung fu in storage! this blog is superb, has really helped me eat healthier. thanks!
