Deliciously seasoned and roasted to perfection. Half Cornish hens are probably sufficient for a normal day, but why not go all out and serve whole ones for yourself and your sweetie.

  • 2 16-18 oz. Cornish hens
  • 1 TB. vegetable oil
  • 1 TB. butter

Preheat oven to 375°. Cornish hens are a small but surprisingly meaty bird. Wash the hens, pat dry. Coat each hen with vegetable oil, then season heavily with BICENTENNIAL RUB. Top with small pieces of butter. Place the hens in a roasting pan with a rack in a preheated 375° oven for 15 minutes, then reduce heat to 325° and cook until the skin is crisply golden and the meat is done, 45-60 minutes depending on size. Occasionally use a brush or spoon to baste the hens with the pan juices.
