Have you ever eaten lavender? This great recipe used chicken with lavender, bacon and cheese. Its unique flavour blends very well with chicken.
Great stuff. I have two lavender plants (one silver frost lavender and one munstead lavender) and I was trying to figure out what to use them with. I tried this recipe with the Munstead lavender. Having great respect for the power of herbs, I only used two sprigs per chicken part. Thank you for such an easy but tasty recipe :o) - 05 Jul 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
The cheese really doesn't add anything to this recipe, at least as written as a topping. Make a cheese sauce if you want to perk it up. I'm fortunate to live near a lavender farm. Make sure all lavender that is used in cooking has not had pesticides or chemicals put on it. Make sure it is labeled good for use in foods or in some way is mentioned that it is food safe. Not all lavender is safe. Lavender is also cook for throwing on the grill with some lamb chops. This recipe is a good use of it. Tasty. - 18 Sep 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Thanks for the recipe, Angel, but dried lavender is almost impossible to find in our area, to say nothing of fresh lavender. The recipe is just ok with the dried lavender. I'll keep searching. - 08 Apr 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
