  1. With a mallet (if you have one) or a rolling pin, pound the chicken things until the flesh loosens. Coat them with some salt and pepper and keep aside to marinade.
  2. Heat a nonstick pan with some oil. Brown the chicken things on both sides until firm and golden. Take out of pan.
  3. To the same pan, add the mashed garlic. Once it browns, add the onion. Sautee till translucent.
  4. Add the leeks. Sautee till limp and fragrant.
  5. Then add the chicken and sautee for about 2 minutes.
  6. Add the cream. Mix well until it coats everything. Sprinkle the saffron, the tarragon and the chili flakes on top. Mix well.
  7. Simmer on low heat until the gravy thickens slightly. Add salt to taste. Serve warm.
