Lavender Chicken with Tarragon and Longan Fruit

Lavender Chicken has a fragrant flavor that’s unmistakable. Adding tarragon and longan fruit balance it out and bring it back to a more savory flavor than floral. This dish is juicy and full flavored, but light, and a welcome addition to any repertoire of recipes.

1 Tbsp dried lavender flowers

2 Tbsp tarragon

20 longan fruit (like lychee)

1 tsp salt

1 tsp sugar

1 tsp ascorbic acid

4 skinless chicken thighs

  • Wash chicken thighs and pat dry.
  • Pit longan fruit and puree in a food processor.
  • Add all ingredients to a gallon Ziplock bag and marinate for at least 30 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Lay into a Pyrex pan and bake for 20 minutes, covered, then 20 minutes uncovered.
AMINE BREAKDOWN:
Very Low Amine: lavender, tarragon, longan fruit, salt, ascorbic acid
Low Amine: sugar, skinless chicken
