Ingredients

  • 4

    chicken breasts

  • 1/4

    tsp. black pepper

  • 1/4

    tsp. sea salt

  • Pinch of dried lavender flowers

  • 1/2

    cup honey

  • 1

    tsp. dried lavender flowers

  • 3-4

    slices of bacon, coarsely chopped

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • Brine:

  • 2

    cups of water

  • 2

    Tbls. salt

  • 1/2

    tsp. pepper

  • 1

    tsp. sugar

  • 1

    tsp. olive oil

  • dash or two of hickory seasoning or liquid smoke

Directions

Mix the brine. Place chicken breasts (washed and skin removed) in a gallon zip top bag or vacuum sealer container. Add brine. Allow to rest for at least 1 hour. Overnight is better. Note: You can skip the brining, however, the chicken may be a bit dryer. Chop bacon and set aside. Combine honey, lavender blossoms, and black pepper in a small bowl and set aside. Remove chicken and dry each piece with a paper towel. Flatten each breast slightly by placing in a zip top back and using a mallet or similar tool. Sprinkle the chicken breasts with the salt, pepper and pinch of lavender blossoms. Rub well. Place 1/4 of the bacon in the center of the chicken. Roll or fold over chicken and place in a oil baking dish. Bake 1 hour 350 degrees. The last half hour of baking, baste the chicken with the honey mixture several times until the chicken is golden brown and cooked completely.
