Preparation steps


For the lemon chicken, rinse the chicken breasts and pat dry. Rinse the lemon in hot water, pat dry, grate the zest and squeeze the juice. Mix the lemon juice with the zest and oil and season with salt and pepper. Rinse the chile pepper, halve lengthwise, remove seeds and cut into thin strips. Place the chicken breast with the chile strips in the marinade and let stand for 20 minutes.


For the soup, peel the carrot, potatoes, shallots and garlic and chop everything small. Sauté the vegetables in the hot lobster butter. Deglaze with the white wine, pour in the stock and simmer for about 20 minutes. Then puree the soup finely and strain through a fine sieve. Stir in the Pernod and cream and bring to a boil. If necessary let simmer until thickened. Rinse the fish, pat dry and chop into small pieces. Add with the chile flakes to the soup and leave just until done, about 5-6 minutes. Season with salt, pepper and curry. Remove the chicken from the marinade, drain and sauté in a hot grill pan with oil until browned. Cut the baguette into thin slices, cut the chicken breast into slices and arrange on the baguette slices. Garnish with chile pepper strips. Spoon the soup into serving bowls, sprinkle with croutons and garnish with dill and serve with the lemon chicken.
