Am I just not seeing an oven temp? Or should I guess?

Just be careful on what kind of lavender you use. I can't tell from the picture but it looks like lavendula stoechas (Spanish Lavender is what we tend to call it in the U.S.) and that kind of lavender isn't too healthy to eat. Use Lavendula Angustifolia to be safe.

Beautiful! I also use a lot of lavender on chicken--it is an overlooked choice.
