    - Carla -'s Note:

    Lavender may seems like an odd salad ingredient, but it's delightful scent has a natural affinity with sweet garlic, orange and other wild herbs. A serving of polenta makes this salad both filling and delicious. From the Cook's Encyclopedia of chicken - a cookbook shelf must have!

    Lavender Marinade

    • 6 fresh lavender flowers
    • 2 teaspoons finely grated orange rind
    • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
    • 2 teaspoons honey
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 2 teaspoons freshly chopped thyme
    • 2 teaspoons freshly chopped marjoram

    Directions:

      To make the marinade, strip the lavender flowers from the stems and combine with the orange rind, garlic, honey and salt; add the olive oil and herbs.
    2. 2
      Slash the chicken deeply, spread the mixture over the chicken and marinate in the refrigerator 20 minutes.
    3. 3
      To cook the polenta - in a heavy saucepan, bring the chicken stock to a boil; add the polenta in a steady stream, stirring all the time until thick; this will take 2 to 3 minutes.
    4. 4
      Turn the cooked polenta out onto a 1 inch deep buttered tray and allow to cool.
    5. 5
      Heat the broiler to medium. (If using a barbecue, let the embers settle to a steady glow) Grill the chicken about 15 minutes, turning once.
    6. 6
      Cut the polenta into 1 inch cubes with a wet knife.
    7. 7
      Heat the butter in a large frying pan and fry the polenta until golden brown.

      Wash the salad leaves and spin dry, divide among 4 large plates.
