This lavender honey chicken tastes as amazing as it looks. Prepared using my lavender sea salt, this recipe has amazing depth of flavor and a wonderful but light sweet taste. Use organic air chilled chicken for the best possible freshness. This recipe is perfect for a weeknight meal paired with a broccoli or steamed spinach.
4 Organic chicken leg quarters
½ tbsp. Healthy On You® Lavender Sea Salt
2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
2 tbsp. olive oil
2 tbsp. honey
2 sprigs fresh thyme chopped
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine all ingredients except the chicken in a bowl and whisk until combines well-with a small spoon, taste the marinade to make sure it is has the right mix of salt and honey. It should not taste overly salty.
Wash and pat dry the chicken thighs and cover with entire mixture. Allow to marinate for 10 minutes refrigerated. Place the marinated chicken skin side up into the oven and cook for 20 minutes. Turn the chicken to skin side down and cook for another 10 minutes. Turn the chicken back to skin side up, baste and sprinkle with the thyme. Cook for 5 more minutes. Remove from oven and allow to rest for a few minutes before serving.
