Friday Food: Roasted Cornish Game Hens

We are always looking to change up the recipes and find something new and this one we looking into paleo, and it happens to be for athletes.  Cornish Game Hens sounded like something you don't do very often but they are a great meal.  High in protein, not too bad on fat and the seasoning you can put on them takes it over the top.  Check this one out for a great meal in the near future.


            3 Cornish hens (1 ½ pounds each)
            ½ cup unsweetened applesauce
            2 tsp lemon juice
            ¼ tsp rubbed sage
            ¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper
            ¼ tsp paprika
            ¼ tsp garlic powder

The Game Plan:

-Preheat oven to 350degF.  
-Remove the skins from the hens and cut the hens in half lengthwise.  
-Place in a shallow glass roasting pan lightly coated in olive oil.  
-Combine the applesauce and remaining ingredients.  
-Brush half over the hens, and set aside the remaining mixture.  
-Bake for 30 minutes.  
-Baste the hens with the reserved applesauce mixture, and bake for 15 to 30 minutes longer, or until done.
