  1. To make the marinade, strip the lavender flowers from the stems and combine with the orange rind, garlic, honey and salt; add the olive oil and herbs.
  2. Slash the chicken deeply, spread the mixture over the chicken and marinate in the refrigerator 20 minutes.
  3. To cook the polenta - in a heavy saucepan, bring the chicken stock to a boil; add the polenta in a steady stream, stirring all the time until thick; this will take 2 to 3 minutes.
  4. Turn the cooked polenta out onto a 1 inch deep buttered tray and allow to cool.
  5. Heat the broiler to medium. (If using a barbecue, let the embers settle to a steady glow) Grill the chicken about 15 minutes, turning once.
  6. Cut the polenta into 1 inch cubes with a wet knife.
  7. Heat the butter in a large frying pan and fry the polenta until golden brown.
  8. Wash the salad leaves and spin dry, divide among 4 large plates.
  9. Slice each chicken breast and lay over the salad. Place the polenta among the salad, garnish with sprigs of lavender and tomatoes, season to taste and serve.
