  Unsalted butter 2 Tablespoon
  Carrots 2 Large, thinly sliced
  Leek 1 , halved lengthwise and thinly sliced (white and tender green parts)

1. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter. Add the carrots and leek and cook over moderate heat, stirring, until slightly softened, about 4 minutes. Add the dark meat and curry powder and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add 3 cups of the stock and season with salt and white pepper. Simmer over moderate heat until the vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes.
