DIRECTIONS

  • Rinse and pat dry hens. Cut out the backbone and split through the breastbone. Trim any excess skin or fat.
  • Place oil in a shallow pan and heat oven to 400 degrees.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together lemon juice, honey, thyme, and oregano. Season hens with salt and pepper.
  • Once pan is heated, place hens skin side down and brush with half of the honey mixture.
  • Bake for 30 minutes. Flip hens and brush with remaining honey mixture. Bake 20-30 minutes longer, or until internal temperature reaches 180 degrees. Place on a platter.
  • Drain drippings into a fat separator or skim as much fat as possible. Serve with hens.
