Default Peep's Herb Roasted Cornish Game Hens

Peep's Herb Roasted Cornish Game Hens

2 (≈2 lb.) Cornish game hens
4 TBSP. butter, softened


1 tsp. dry parsley
1 tsp. dry rosemary
1 tsp. dry thyme
1 tsp. dry sage
1 tsp. poultry seasoning
2 cloves garlic, minced fine or pressed
1 tsp. lemon juice
1/2 tsp. lemon zest
1 1/4 tsp. coarse salt, plus more for sprinkling
1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper

Blend all herbs with soft butter.
Gently loosen skin on the breasts of the hens.
Divide herb butter - Place 1/2 under skin and 1/2 on top of skin
Preheat oven to 400F. (I used Convection Roast 400F)
Place hens on a rack inside a baking pan.
Roast 55 - 60 minutes (rotating pan after 30 minutes) until golden brown.
Check internal temperature for doneness (165F)
Remove from oven and let stand at 15 minutes before serving.

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

Never explain yourself. Your friends don't need it and your enemies won't believe it anyway.
