This recipe has a very unique taste- is spicy, sweet and aromatic. Quite a treat. I got out of the SFChronicle in 2000.


  1. Wash the chicken breasts well, remove the skin and pat dry.
  2. combine honey, lavender blossoms, and black pepper in a small bowl and set aside.
  3. Sprinkle the chicken breasts with salt, pepper and lavender blossoms-rub well and place in a baking dish.
  4. Bake 1 hour 350 degrees.
  5. The last half hour of baking, baste the chicken with the honey mixture several times until the chicken is golden brown and cooked completely.

Delish! An easy to prepare recipe that tastes lovely. I would never have thought to add lavender blossoms and honey to chicken breasts, but it was delightful. I went a little heavy on the black pepper, but it still tasted great, thank you for sharing your recipe. Posted for SPring 2013 Pic-A-Chef

I love lavender...honey is a wonderful combination with it. The aroma was heavenly. I also added a little heavy cream to the baking dish to give it a sweet juice (mixed also with honey).

Very good a very nice unusual taste. I put a little white wine in the bottom of the pan and covered it for the first half hour then took the lid off and basted. I used dry lavender which I soked in hot water for 15min then strained and added to chicken and honey it seemed to work fine.
