This Cornish Chicken with lavender, thyme and lemon is another recipe created for Exceldor. I really like the taste that lavender brings to meat. It is close to lemon and thyme and that’s why the combination works so well!


  • 1 Cornish Chicken from Exceldor about 675 g
  • 3 tablespoons (45 g) olive oil
  • 1 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons (14 g) lavender flower
  • 1 tablespoon (7 g) fresh thyme
  • 1 tablespoon (15 g) white wine
  • Dried thyme
  • Salt and pepper from the mill


  • In a large resealable bag, place the chicken and add the olive oil, juice and zest of 1/2 lemon, lavender, fresh thyme and white wine. Season with salt and pepper and close the bag. Mix well and refrigerate for 3 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 375 °F.
  • Place the chicken on a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Insert the remaining half lemon into the chicken cavity. Season the chicken with salt and pepper (everywhere, everywhere) then sprinkle with dried thyme to taste.
  • Place in the oven and cook for 50 minutes to 1 hour or until the internal temperature is 180 ° F (82 ° C). Serve on an Israeli couscous with vegetables!

+- 20$ Cono Sur Single Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016

For thyme, lemon and lavender, we go with Chili and Pinot Noir. I present you the Cono Sur Single Vineyard with herbal notes, heated wood and small red fruits. The tannins are melted, the mouth is greedy, and we take a great pleasure to enjoy this little pinot with modern and fresh accents.

Triple d’Abeille Chardonnay, Bockale, 10%

Triple Belgian with wild flowers honey matured in Chardonnay oak barrel, this beer will offer notes of apricot, peach, honey, apple and wild pepper. The fruity and spicy notes will come at once to join the aromas of thyme, lemon, and support the scent of lavender. Round enough in the mouth, this triple will coat the roasted meat to give your taste buds a comforting touch of honey.
