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.
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.
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!
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).
