Recipe: Fragrant Chicken Salad

New Zealand School of Food & Wine

This recipe is fragrant because it uses the aromatic herbs of mint and coriander (or alternatively, basil). The marinade in this recipe is based on infusing the chicken with crushed lemongrass.

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.

Feeling a tad outdated at work?

The Mind Lab

There is nothing worse than that sneaking suspicion that you are past your sell-by date at work. There is a point at which quirky and clueless is less fun and more embarrassing.

There is nothing worse than that sneaking suspicion that you are past your sell-by date at work. There is a point at which quirky and clueless is less fun and more embarrassing.

There really is no reason to feel this way if the issue is not being digitally literate. Digital Skills for the Workplace, offered by The Mind Lab, is fun, it really is, and it’s not a bunch of “how to” steps that you need to follow once you’re back at work and pray that it works - you actually use the tools without being aware that you are learning the tool.
You experience the impact of the skill while using it and playing so it’s already part of your DNA by the time you get back to work.

That’s a secret Mind Lab formula by the way!
And its professional development (tick that box!)
