3 things I love together..I found a recipe at Food.com..Googling the lavender ..Dijon..and a nice marinade /dressing/sauce came up..
I had first tasted this dish..not this one..in Gordes at Le Provençal..Poulet à la lavande..I could not get enough of it and ate it twice while there..skin on..bone in..delish..
I created one for Fifi's magazine which was good..
but this recipe is 1-2-3..
I only made one change to it..
I added 1 tbsp of honey~
I marinated my boneless skinless chicken breasts is some of the marinade.. for about 4 hours..
Jacques grilled them on the BBQ..and I warmed up the leftover dressing and poured a bit onthe chicken/potatoes..
I am not a creamy or saucy person..this is like a vinaigrette and works very well for me~
1/2 cup EVOO
2 tbsps red wine vinegar
1/2 lemon ..juice of
2 tbsps Dijon
1 generous Tbsp Honey:)
2 tps dried culinary lavender finely ground in a spice grinder
(I used the mortar and pestle to make the whole dressing..starting w/ grinding the lavender)
3/4 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp minced garlic
1/4 tsp fresh groud pepper
fresh lavender flowers to garnish
1.In a jar with tight fitting lid combine all ings
I strated going through things I brought back from that trip..some placemats..as Le Provençal one.. some menus..wine labels..business cards..my journal.
I would never go anywhere like that without a journal.
It was a gift before we went..a big thick blanks journal w/ a chartreuse green suede cover and tie♥
Oh the eye candy was everywhere..the towns..the markets..the restos..the food.. the buildings..gardens ..cars ...co-ops..(wine co-ops)~
The placemat from the resto is in the upper left hand corner..shouldn't have folded it up~:)
Have a lovely weekend..~
I have but one small plan..to go see if my gentleman at the flea market remembered my vintage pan paints:)
Very early Sat.. morning if the rain stays away..before the crowds arrive~
My friend Nancy owned a deux chevaux when she lived in France:)~like the one in the photo above~
Her favorite car ever~
Bonne Fin de Semaine~
