  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Poultry

 Ingredients List

  • 8 To 12 small (about 2-inch
  • -diameter) thin skinned
  • -potatoes, scrubbed
  • 2 Cornish game hens (1 1/4 to
  • -1 1/2 lb. each)
  • 2 tb Dijon mustard
  • 2 tb Honey
  • 1/4 c Dry white wine or apple
  • -juice
  • 1 tb Minced fresh or 1 teaspoon
  • -dry thyme leaves
  • Salt and pepper


Place potatoes in an 8- to 9-inch-square pan and set on a rack in
upper half of a 425F oven. Bake for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, with kitchen scissors or a knife, split hens in half,
cutting along backbone and breastbone. Rinse and pat dry. Reserve
neck and giblets for another use. [Hardly! They'd go right into the
pan too... S.C.] Mix mustard, honey, wine and thyme. Rub all over

Place hens, skin up, on a rack in a foil-lined 12- by 15-inch broiler

Set hens in bottom third of the oven. Bake until potatoes are tender
when pierced and meat is no longer pink at thigh bone (cut to test),
25 to 30 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Serves 4.
