Fresh chicken breasts wrapped with bacon, chilli flakes and sprigs of fresh lavender. They are baked until golden brown then topped with grated cheddar cheese.
English Lavender is used for cooking. The flowers have a sweet-mild perfume/savoury flavour.Other Lavender's are high in camphor. Fine to keep the mozzies away not good for eating. If you want to make this recipe and don't have any English Lavender why not try it with Rosemary sprigs. - 25 Nov 2011
Im on the Atkins Diet. Made this for dinner tonight. Yummy. Didn't have chilli flakes so used fresh chilli chopped fine. - 25 Nov 2011
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. Having great respect for the power of herbs, I only used two sprigs per chicken part. Thank you for such an easy but tasty recipe :o) - 05 Jul 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
