Lemon-Lavender Chicken {Chit Chat Chomp-Inspired}

Now that my July SRC reveal for Chit Chat Chomp has been posted, I decided to post the recipes I made, separately, so they're searchable - because they were all delicious! Enjoy.

Lemon-Lavender Chicken
From Chit Chat Chomp - I'm glad I realized - before I popped these in the oven - that Leigh's recipe was written in celsius...or I would have had raw chicken and hungry boys. Also, I doubled the thyme and doubled the lemon. It was perfect!


3 pounds of chicken (I used all drumsticks)
2 T dried lavender
4 T olive oil
4 T runny honey (I used a local buckwheat honey)
5 sprigs of thyme
finely grated zest and juice of 2 lemon
a generous pinch of salt

Crush the lavender using a mortar and pestle. Combine with the oil, honey, thyme, lemon zest and juice and mix well.  Add the chicken pieces and marinate for at least 30 minutes (mine sat for 90 minutes).

When ready, preheat the oven to 395 degrees F and put the chicken and marinade into a baking dish and sprinkle with a generous pinch of salt.  Roast the chicken for 30 minutes, covered with foil. Uncover, turn pieces, and roast for an additional 25-30 minutes.

  2. I never would have thought to use lavender for chicken. That combo sounds so beautifully delicious.

  3. I think lavender can be wonderful (if used sparingly). I have a lavender salt I love.

  6. Looks delicious, Camilla. I planted a lavender plant last year, so I'm always looking for new ways to incorporate it into my cooking. Great pick!

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
