  • Cook:

    35 minutes


  • 4 fillets of 140 g free range Landes chicken
  • 4 batons of lemongrass
  • 50 cl chicken stock
  • 4 g agar-agar
  • Green marinade (basil, chives, ginger, parsley, anise, celery, spring onion, garlic)
  • Spring vegetables (carrots, squash, zucchini, black briony)
  • Butter
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper


Infuse, in a good amount of tasty chicken stock, 2 chopped lemongrass (keep the others for decoration), reduce by half and gel it with agar-agar. Pour into a shallow dish to 4 mm thick.

Cook the vegetables in salted boiling water then cool. To serve them, reheat them gently with a little olive oil.

Cook the skin side of the poultry in oil and butter covered for 5-6 minutes and let stand 5-6 minutes. Brush the filets with the green marinade well mixed with oil, and reheat for 2 to 3 minutes in a hot oven.


Take a deep and hot plate, cut a circle of the gelled broth, then place the vegetables over it and decorate with half a lemongrass stick decor and place the poultry. Upon contact with hot food, the gel will melt and turn into broth, when mixed, will provide exciting flavors.
