Don't remember where I got this recipe, but I have tried it many times and it is delicious! This is a recipe for one. Combine this with some Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Romaine with Parmesan Dressing, and a Raspberry Crème Fraiche Puff and you have yourself a complete dinner for one!

  2. Spoon stuffing into body cavity. Combine mayonnaise and poultry seasoning; coat hen with mayonnaise mixture.
  3. Place hen, breast side up on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Roast, uncovered, in a 375 degree F oven for 1 to 1-1/4 hours or until drumstick moves easily in socket.
  4. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan combine cranberries, brown sugar, and orange juice concentrate. Bring to boiling. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 3 to 5 minutes or until cranberry skins pop.
  5. Serve with cranberry sauce, if desired.
