Instructions

The Chicken

First, prepare the marinade. In a medium deep metal pan place olive oil, Soy Sauce, turmeric, honey, garam masala, curry, cayenne pepper, sea salt, lemon and garlic. Mix with a balloon whisk and taste. Meat in. Gently stir with a spoon and cover with a lid. Refrigerate for couple of hours.

The Herbal Butter

Place all the ingredients into a blender: butter, parsley, sea salt and garlic. Blend until you get a beautiful color and texture. Taste. Mold into a piece of aluminium foil and wrap like a candy. Refrigerate the butter until serving. If you do not intend to use it all at one, you can always keep the rest in the freezer. Cut your desirable amount and refrigerate.

The Dressing

In a small mixing bowl place all the ingredients: Balsamic Vinegar, honey and sea salt. Mix well with a balloon whisk and taste. It should taste rather sour.

The Salad

First of all, finish the chicken. In a non sticking medium pan or a wok put the chicken on high heat. Sear nicely from all the sides. Gradually add shallot and a splash of Heinz and sprinkle with satureja. Once the chicken is beautifully golden and the onion softens, baste it with the wine. Reduce. Done. In a wide large mixing bowl place salad, paprika, carrot and tomato. Flowery Chicken Salad Stir in The Dressing and taste. Next, mold the chicken with all the bits and sauce. Sprinkle with a good amount of Feta and serve immediately with the fresh baguette and Herbal Butter. Yummy! Makes 2 serves.
