  1. Preheat oven to 350*F.
  2. Pat chicken dry and sprinkle generously with salt & pepper.
  3. Heat oil & 1 tbsp butter in large dutch oven until foaming subsides.
  4. In 2 batches, brown chicken on both sides, flipping once. About 5minutes per side. Transfer chicken to a plate.
  5. Meanwhile wash the leeks thoroughly and chop vegetables.
  6. Pour the fat from the pan, then add the remaining butter (2TBSP). Cook the leeks, shallot, and about 1/4 tsp salt in the pan, covered until the leeks are just beginning to brown, about 7 minutes.
  7. Add the chicken (skin side up) and any accumulated juices, carrots, and wine. Boil until liquid is reduced by half, about 5 minutes.
  8. Cover the dutch oven and place in the oven for 25 minutes (you can turn off the oven and leave the chicken in for about another 15 minutes if you need the additional time).
  9. While the chicken is in the oven, place the potatoes and 1 tsp salt in a saucepan, cover with cold water and bring to a boil. Simmer until potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes.
  10. Drain potatoes and return to saucepan. Add the parsley and shake to coat.
  11. When you remove the chicken from the oven, add the cream. Season to taste with the lemon juice, salt , and pepper.
  12. Add the potatoes and serve.
