For Christmas dinner I enjoy making Cornish hens with veggies for my husband and I. It is really simple and requires no carving.
-2 cornish hens
-1 sweet onion chopped
-1 stick of butter melted
-2 tsp of dried oregano
-2 tsp of dried rosemary
-1 tbs of minced garlic
-1 tbs of olive-salt and pepper
-oven bag (optional)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
In a bowl, melt the butter and mix in the garlic,oregano and rosemary.
I used small potatoes and mini carrots so that I didn't have to chop. Place the vegetables and onions in a bowl and combine with the butter mixture.
I like to use an oven bag because I feel is makes the chicken extra moist.
Place a little bit of flour in the oven bag and put in the veggies and place in a pan.
Brush olive oil on the hens and season with salt and pepper. Place on top of the vegetables(breast side up) and close the oven bag. Cut a few slits into the oven bag.
Bake in the oven for 1 hour-1 hour 15 min or until the thermometer reads 180 degrees.
