Nov-Dinner- Maple Orange Cornish Hens Preparation
There are two possible methods of preparing these Cornish Hens: 1. Cut the hens in half before roasting; and 2. Cook the juicy glazed birds whole - easing the orange rind in between skin and breast, then tying the legs together and roasting at 375F 190C for 1 hour. Use kitchen shears to cut the hens in half to serve. For this recipe... In small saucepan, whisk together maple syrup, orange juice, wine and rosemary. Bring to boil; boil for 3-5 minutes or until glaze is slightly thickened. Let cool slightly. Meanwhile, cut wing tips from hens. Using kitchen shears or sharp knife, cut along each side of backbone; discard backbone. cut through breast bone to separate into halves. Trim off excess fat and skin. Place hens, skin side up, on foil-lined baking sheet. Season lightly with salt and pepper; brush with one-third of the glaze. Bake hens in 375F 190C oven, brushing with glaze twice, for 45 minutes or until browned and juices run clear when hen is pressed. Arrange hens on serving platter; garnish attractively with rosemary and orange slices.
