Roasted Cornish Game Hen
Kathleen Neumark

1 whole Cornish Game Hen (around 1 pound)
1 tablespoon of Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper

Preheat oven to 450. Rub game hen with olive oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Tie legs together with kitchen string if desired for more even cooking. Roast hen in a baking pan breast side down until done, for around 35 minutes. Hen is done if the thickest part of the thigh comes to 165 degrees, or if when cut the juices of the bird run clear. Rest for at least 15 minutes before carving the bird. A good serving is about a quarter of a bird- a leg, thigh, and a bit of extra meat.
