Tender, slow-cooked chicken thighs are infused with the amazing flavors of leeks, sweet dried cherries, salty kalamata olives, and rich ruby port. Serve this fall-apart-tender chicken over couscous or rice to soak up all the delicious sauce.

This is an unusual recipe but one I have to dry. The tartness of the cherries and the other flavors will make it a tasty dish. I won't be shredding the chicken at the end, only because I don't like how any meat or poultry tastes shredded. I know I am weird. I also like the garnish. Put almonds on anything and I am in. Can't wait to try it. Thank you.
