This meal was incredibly delicious! I did however do extra things to make it this way. I brined in the "Citrus Turkey Brine" found on all recipes, of course changing it to fit the amount of hen I was using. In this case I was cooking 4 hens. I only brined for 2 hours. Then I boiled carrots, celery, potatoes, onion and garlic in a water/vegetable/chicken broth mixture until they were close to tender. I placed all the veggies in the bottom of the pan and then placed the hens on top (breast side down). I followed all the directions of this recipe, but placed orange with the lemon and rosemary inside the hens. I poured a little wine and chicken broth with the veggies before the basting when lowering the temp. I also flipped the birds over when I lowered the temp. When they were done it was super moist and they were perfectly golden brown! Yum!! After it was all done I took the drippings and made gravy... soooo good!!!
