Start 2010 off right with delicate and tasty Cornish Game Hens! They should now be on sale at your local grocer, so grab a few and prepare for a wonderfully exquisite dinner!
2-3 Cornish Game Hens
1/3 Cup Olive Oil
2 Teaspoons Kosher Salt
1 Teaspoon Pepper
2-3 Apples of your choice
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Rinse the Cornish Game Hens in your sink and pat dry with a clean dish towel or paper towel. Wash your apples and place an Apple into the center of each hen. Drizzle a bit of Olive Oil onto the bottom of your baking pan and hand rub your hens with the remaining Olive Oil. Sprinkle Kosher Salt and Pepper all around the birds and place into the oven, uncovered for approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes, to 2 hours (Note: you can tell when poultry is cooked when you slice the meat next to the thigh and juices run clear).
Serving Tip: Try serving with steamed Artichokes!
