Seasoned with lavender and thyme, which herald the return of spring, these roasted poussins are aromatic and flavorful, and just unique enough to be a memorable meal.

Roast chicken is a quintessential comfort food, and properly done, can hardly be improved upon. But even the classics are fun to play with, and by downsizing your chicken you can put an intimate, elegant spin on things. Poussins are, despite a fancy French name, nothing more than your standard chicken in miniature, weighing in under a pound and less than 28 days old.
