This recipe comes from Anne Burrell's "Secrets of a Restaurant Chef". Cornish Game hens are really just adolescent chickens, but they do make a fancy presentation as they are small enough to fit one one dinner plate. I served these with my Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Pomegranate Molasses recipe, and this was a very simple dinner that made a lovely presentation. Please visit my blog to see how I made this.
|4||Cornish game hens, split, spine and wing tips removed|
|Extra-virgin olive oil|
|1||bottle (12 fluid ounces) pomegranate molasses*|
|2||cloves garlic, smashed|
|2||tablespoons sliced scallion greens, cut thin on the bias, for garnish|
|NOTE: You can easily make your own Pomegranate Molasses, which I did (it's on my blog)|
