Cornish Hen and Awesome Friends
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Melt butter and mince 3 cloves of garlic. Salt and Pepper the inside of the hen. Tie the legs together. Use half of the butter and garlic mixture and brush the hen with butter until well covered. Put 1 or 2 whole garlic cloves inside the hen. Bake for 1 hour in a 9" x 13" baking dish. Remove and brush the remaining butter and garlic on the hen, put back into the oven for 15 minutes. Remove and serve.
It's so simple but you will definitelyy impress with the awesome presentation. Just for fun, and leftovers, I make one hen per person. Next time I'm going to try stuffing the hen with various fresh herbs and an onion. As a result of this recipe and the two meals I've now shared with coworkers I've discovered how one of the best places to kindle a friendship is over a good meal.
