First recipe with my Lavender Salts! Lavender is great paired with lemon or any citrus flavors. This would also be a nice seasoning combo for a mild fish such as tilapia. This was a delicious dish accompanied by some udon noodles.

Lemon-Lavender Baked Chicken

Ingredients:

  • 3 bone-in chicken thighs
  • 3 chicken drumsticks
  • juice of 2 lemons
  • about 2 tbsp lavender salt
  • EVOO

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. In a lightly greased 13X9 baking pan, arrange chicken thighs & drumsticks skin-side-up.
  3. Drizzle with EVOO & lemon juice. For extra lemony flavor, cut up the squeezed lemons & place them in the dish with the chicken.
  4. Sprinkle all over with lavender salt. For extra lavendery flavor, salt under the skin as well.
  5. Bake 30-40 mins or until skin is golden & chicken juices run clear.
  6. Let chicken rest for about 5 mins before serving.
