A few days ago, I picked up some lavender salt from the salt bins at Whole Foods. I am now addicted. It adds the perfect touch to many dishes. Here is one of my favorite.
Lavender Roasted Chicken
- 4 chicken breasts (bone-in)
- olive oil
- lavender sea salt
Preheat oven to 475°.
Pour a generous amount of olive oil into a roasting pan (~4 tablespoons). Rinse chicken breasts and dry with paper towel. Put the chicken in the roasting pan and massage oil to coat. Make sure all the breasts are skin side down. Sprinkle lavender salt over each piece. Put chicken into preheated oven. Roast for roughly 20 minutes. Lower oven to 375° and cook for 30 to 45 minutes, flipping chicken breast halfway through, until cooked through. (Internal temperature should be about 165°, for those who like to use a thermometer.)
Delicious with sweet potatoes and sour cream.
