Cornish Hens with Rosemary and Thyme
Source: Ashley's Little Kitchen
2 Cornish Hens
Sprigs of rosemary
¼ cup butter, melted
Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Put fresh rosemary in the cavity of each hen.
Brush butter all over the skin of each Cornish hen (leave some butter for recoating throughout the roasting process).
Sprinkle thyme, salt and pepper and any other herbs you would like all over the outside of each hen.
Place the prepared Cornish hens in a roasting pan and roast for 45-50 minutes, or until cooked through, occasionally basting with leftover butter to keep skin from drying out.
