I wanted to recreate the summery scents and flavors of Provence, France, so this is the result. You can inject this formula between the skin and flesh of a chicken or a duck. You can also baste your bird during the last half hour of roasting. Either way, this is an amazing taste trip to the south of France. If you have a Bandol Rose lying around, you might enjoy this dish even more... If you grow French lavender, as we do, you want only the flowers for cooking. While I will provide the measures that I use, you should feel free to modify my recommendations as you wish. But I hope that you will try this method at least once. It really is quite unusual and makes a wonderful main course when paired with my Roasted Garlic White Cheddar Mashed Potatoes and a Spring Salad with my Lime Vinaigrette Dressing. I always roast my chickens at a high temperature for 2 hours and I always serve a moist, tender, tasty bird. Try my method once. I will use the ^ symbol for degrees F.
