CORNISH GAME HENS WITH GARLIC AND ROSEMARY

Ingredients:

2 each Cornish game hens
3 Tbs olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
12 cloves garlic
½ lemon, quartered
½ cup chicken broth
4 sprigs fresh rosemary divided

Directions:

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C)

Rub hens with 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Lightly season hens with salt and pepper. Place 1 lemon wedge and 1 sprig rosemary in cavity of each hen. Arrange in a large, heavy roasting pan, and arrange garlic cloves around hens. Roast in preheated oven for 25 minutes.

Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). In a mixing bowl, whisk chicken broth and remaining 2 tablespoons of oil; pour over hens. Continue roasting about 25 minutes longer, or until hens are golden brown and juices run clear. Baste with pan juices every 10 minutes.

Transfer hens to a platter, pouring any cavity juices into the roasting pan. Tent hens with aluminum foil to keep warm. Transfer pan juices and garlic cloves to a medium saucepan and boil until liquids reduce to a sauce consistency, about 6 minutes. Cut hens in half lengthwise and arrange on plates. Spoon sauce and garlic around hens. Garnish with rosemary sprigs and serve.
