Herbed Cornish Game Hen



  • 2 Cornish game hens
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon rubbed sage
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning (optional)



  1. Place hens, breast side up, on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. In a small bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Brush over hens. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees F for 50-60 minutes or until juices run clear.
  2. I added carrots and potatoes turning it into on one dish dinner.
