Kim's Lavender Chicken Drumsticks

This recipe makes the chicken succulent and delicious.  You can speed up the marinating time but it makes all the difference to leave the chicken to soak up all the flavors overnight or even for two nights in the refrigerator.  This is good served with a green salad or corn.
