    French Tart's Note:

    An easy, romantic and elegant dish to make with chicken breasts, which are gently poached in a lavender infused broth and then served with a creamy shallot and lemon sauce. Use low fat creme fraiche or cream if you are watching your fat intake - it works just as well. Serve these delightful lavender poached chicken breasts with wild rice, pasta or new potatoes and mange tout. This recipe is for two people - but the ingredients can be increased with ease!

      Wow! This was a fabulous and easy recipe! For the sauce, I didn't remove the broth from the pan, just added the shallots and butter to it. I needed a bit more liquid so I added some water and a little heavy cream. It was so wonderful. I served over rice with a side of green beans. This one is going into my favorites cookbook!
