Recipe: Fragrant Chicken Salad

New Zealand School of Food & Wine

The marinade in this recipe is based on infusing the chicken with crushed lemongrass. Lemongrass is one of those aromatic greens that seems to cope with being frozen so I always have some in the freezer ready to use. It will usually defrost within 10 minutes. It is important to massage your chicken with the lemongrass and oil. It may look a bit strange but this way, the flavour of the lemongrass will be absorbed.

Hi neighbours, at least 17 people were stung by bluebottle jellyfish at Muriwai on Monday. Thousands of people were at the beach that day, despite a warning being posted on Auckland Council's Safeswim website about a large number of jellyfish being in the water.
The beach goers who were stung received first aid treatment from lifeguards. Bluebottle jellyfish stings cause whip-like red welts that can last for up to three days. They can be extremely painful, so make sure you watch out for them and check for warnings.
