Cornish Game Hens are a really fun, kinda fancy feeling dinner. I'll always have a special place in my heart for getting my own little chicken to eat because a boyfriend once made this dinner for me and it was so much fun (no it wasn't Josh, Josh in fact NEVER cooked me anything before we got married...what's up with that?). Whenever I see them on sale I just cant resist.
First you have to clean your hen and then make it dance. Yes, making it dance is a necessary step in cooking any and all poultry.
Next you want to rub each hen with lemon and then butter. Place inside each cavity half a lemon and a sprig of fresh basil. Throw them in the oven set at 375 for about an hour or until the juices run clear.
You are already done! You can serve it with mashed potatoes and corn cut straight from a cob. :)
