Silverleaf

"Chicken with lavender, bacon and cheese. Everyone appreciates lavender for its scent and flowers, but very few people have tasted it. Its unique flavour blends very well with chicken."

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Place three sprigs of lavender on top of each chicken breast half. Wrap two slices of bacon around each piece of chicken keeping the lavender inside. Place chicken into a shallow baking dish. Season with salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes.
  3. Position the baking dish on the top shelf in the preheated oven, and bake chicken for 20 minutes, turning once. Turn again so the lavender is on top, and sprinkle with shredded cheese. Continue baking 10 minutes, or until cheese has melted and chicken juices run clear.

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...

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.

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 ...

made this dish as written for 4 children ages 11 yrs to 15 years and they ate every bit. the next time I make this recipe, I might try using fresh sage leaves instead of the lavender, as I think...

This is absolutely wonderful!!! I made it for my picky boyfriend and he loved it!

Yum! Great combo of flavors! Next time I'll be pounding the chicken thin and rolling it with the bacon, lavender and cheese. I also probably wouldn't use cheddar cheese again, more likely swiss ...
