Chicken Pasta with Melted Leeks and Goat Cheese

In a skillet over medium-low heat, sauté 3 sliced leeks in unsalted butter, kosher salt to taste, 1 thyme sprig, if desired, and a splash of water. Cook, stirring occasionally, until leeks collapse into a tender mass. Shred chicken into leeks and cook until chicken is just warmed through. Toss mixture with al dente whole wheat penne, crumbles of goat cheese, and a dash of pasta cooking water. You can use fresh goat cheese, but for more complexity try an aged chevre, such as Crottin de Chavignol.
