Cornish Game Hens with Garlic and Rosemary

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2013
KEEPER! I have always struggled with a way to make Cornish hens both flavorful and tender. But since I like the idea of serving them for special occasions, I have kept at it. Finally, I can stop the search! Simply wonderful recipe, easy to do with fabulous results. As so many others, I did my own adaption: I like mild garlic flavor, so for two hens, I only used one head of garlic, about 8 cloves. That was perfect for us. I also omitted the rosemary and added a quarter of an orange to the cavity, with one big slice of lemon. It ended up giving a lovely orange/citrus flavor to the sauce. Next time, I might add a bit of orange juice to the sauce as well. Baking time was spot on (I agree with others recommending an oven thermometer) and the birds were a lovely brown-golden color. Moist and tasty. Thank you for such a great recipe!
