Caramelized Leek and Chicken Curry


Found this recipe a few weeks ago on kitchendaily.com, and since we had an extra leek sitting around, we decided to put it to use in this dish, which has a few interesting twists on a traditional Thai green curry (thanks to a unique cilantro pesto). We began by slicing the green tops off of…
