DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 375°F Heat the olive oil in a large flame-proof casserole and add the onion, garlic and bacon; sauté 5 to 6 minutes, until the onion has softened.
  • Brush the hens with a little melted butter and season well.
  • Lay the hens on top of the onion mixture and place the other vegetables around hens. Add the chicken stock, wine and herbs.
  • Cover and bake for 20 minutes, then remove the lid and brush with the remaining melted butter; bake for another 25 to 30 minutes, until golden.
  • Transfer the hens to a warmed serving platter and cut each in half with poultry shears.
  • Remove the vegetables with a slotted spoon and arrange them around the hens. Cover with foil and keep warm.
  • Discard the herbs from the pan juices. In a small bowl mix the butter and flour to form a paste. Bring the liquid in the pan to a boil and then whisk in teaspoonfuls of the paste until thickened.
  • Season the sauce and serve with the Rock Cornish hens and vegetables, garnished with fresh herbs.
