    This was incredibly delicious, especially the lovely peaches. We didn't have lavender sprigs, so just used the lavender honey, but honestly, I think any honey with a prominent floral note would work well.

    We didn't have lavender honey but did have lavender. Maybe the lavender honey gives it the taste, but I couldn't taste lavender in the dish. Otherwise it was a wonderful, easy chicken dinner with a great sauce. We'll be making this again, perhaps with orange blossom honey and orange zest.

    I can't say I really cooked this recipe because a) I didn't put any lavender in it and b) no lavender honey was available here in southern France (yes, really!) so I used heather honey instead. That said, the combination of chicken, peaches and a sweet, caramelized sauce is excellent. Never a duff recipe in this book. Note, you don't need a whole chicken; I used drumsticks.
