Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • Preheat a grill for high heat and lightly oil the grate. Spray chicken breasts with cooking spray and season with salt and pepper. Grill chicken until grill marks appear on the outsides, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to the lined baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes. Remove chicken, set aside, and increase oven temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Heat a flat-bottomed skillet over medium-high heat. Add vegetable oil and onion. Cook, stirring often, until onion begins to brown, 5 minutes. Reduce heat to low and continue cooking and stirring until onion is very tender and dark brown, about 25 minutes more.

  • Season onion with salt and add vinegar; cook until vinegar absorbed, about 3 minutes. Top chicken with the onions. Crumble goat cheese on top and sprinkle with lemon zest and lavender. Drizzle honey on top.

  • Return chicken to the oven and bake until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of the chicken reads 165 F (74 degrees C) and goat cheese is lightly toasted, 8 to 10 minutes more.

Cook's Note:

If the onions begin to burn, take them off the heat and rest. Once onions have rested, scrape the bottom of the skillet with a wooden spoon to clean up and return the pan to the heat.
