Chicken Breasts with Caramelized Leek Sauce and Fresh Corn Relish

2 6-ounce chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons chicken stock or white wine
1/4 cup leeks, shredded (use the entire leek – both white and green sections)

Mix the flour, salt and pepper together and dredge the chicken breasts in this mixture. Place the olive oil in a sauté pan over medium heat and cook the chicken breasts for 2 minutes on each side. Remove from pan.

Add the chicken stock (or white wine) to the pan and de-glaze the pan by stirring the loosen browned bits of food from the bottom of the pan. Add the leeks, black pepper, and parsley and cook for 2 minutes. Add the whipping cream and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium and continue to cook until the volume of liquid is reduced by 1/3.

Pour the Caramelized Leek Sauce over the chicken breasts and serve with Fresh Corn Relish.

2 tablespoons fresh red pepper, chopped
1 tablespoon butter, melted
