    I’m going to add to the chorus of praise for this recipe. I couldn’t get my hands on any lavender either, but the chicken is delicious without it.

    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.
