DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • In a small mixing bowl, stir together salt, lemon pepper, dried basil and poultry seasoning.
  • Rub olive oil all over the hens and season each with the salt mixture.
  • Place the hens on a baking sheet pan with plenty of space between them. You may need to use 2 pans.
  • Loosely stuff the cavities of each hen with some green bell pepper, celery and onion.
  • Roast the hens in the preheated oven for about 1 hour or until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the thigh registers 165 degrees F and the juices run clear.
  • Remove the hens from the oven, loosely tent with foil and let rest 10 minutes before carving or serving.
