    2) In an oven proof shallow dutch oven, add the bacon, cook until crispy then remove to a plate and discard the fat.

    3) Add the butter to the skillet along with the leeks and a pinch of salt, cook on medium heat for about 15 minutes or until the leeks have cooked down, developed some color become tender, add the flour, stir well for about 30 seconds then add the wine, allow it to cook out for 1 minute then add 3 cups of the stock from the chicken along with teh cream, carrots and seasoning of choice. VBring to simmer and simmer for 15 minutes, meanwhile, shred your chicken.
