I bought two packages or 4 game hens on sale the other day. Usually, I don't like to make these little chicken-tasting birds because I find them to be a bit boring. However, today, I thought I would jazz them up a bit with the following marinate:
1 whole head of garlic (peeled)
Juice of two large limes
Fresh sage and oregano
Salt and pepper to taste (I used tbsp of salt)
1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil
Using the food processor blend until well blended.
Cornish Game Hens:
4 game hens (split down the middle)
Place in a large bowl or baking dish. Pour the marinate over all pieces, making sure to coat evenly. Cover and let sit in refrigerator for at least 3 or 4 hours.
Preheat oven at 350 degrees until very hot. Place hens on a roasting or baking pan.
Place in hot oven and turn over when that side is evenly browned. When both sides are browned. Turn off oven. Approximately 45 to 1 hour.
Serve with sauteed mushrooms, steamed white rice and tossed salad.
