DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a small bowl, whisk honey, lemon juice, paprika, cumin, ginger, cinnamon, salt, pepper, and cayenne. In a large bowl, combine zucchini, turnips, squash, onion and garlic. Toss with 3 tablespoons spice mixture.
  • With a heavy chef's knife or poultry shears, cut hens in half lengthwise, from breast through backbone. Cut off wing tips and first joint. With a paper towel, pull skin off breast, wing, thigh and leg bones; discard skin. Rub hens with remaining spice mixture.
  • Lightly oil a 10 x 14 inch roasting pan or coat it with nonstick spray. Spread vegetables in pan; toss with tomatoes and their juices. Nestle hens, bone-side down, into vegetables. Add chicken broth to pan. Cover tightly with foil.
  • Bake hens and vegetables for 45 minutes. Uncover and roast, basting occasionally with pan juices, until hens are no longer pink inside and vegetables are tender, 15 - 20 minutes more. Garnish with parsley and cilantro and serve.
