Easy enough for a weeknight yet elegant enough for company, this chicken recipe is a surefire winner. It uses simple, everyday ingredients like chicken drumsticks and quick-cooking couscous that get a boost from a French-inspired pan sauce that includes buttery leeks, sharp mustard, and a touch of cream.

  • Discard all but 1 tablespoon fat from skillet; reduce heat to medium. Add leeks and cook until soft, about 3 minutes. Add wine and cook, scraping up browned bits, until liquid evaporates, 3 minutes. Stir in broth, mustard, and thyme; bring to a boil. Return chicken and any juices to skillet in a single layer. Roast in oven until chicken is cooked through, 15 to 17 minutes.

  • Transfer chicken to a plate. Bring sauce to a simmer over medium heat; stir in cream. Serve chicken and sauce with couscous and salad.
